Re: Abandoned, neglected square body trucks rotting away...

I wonder how many viewers to this thread are in the position I am.... Without being too specific, I have a wtb out in other areas for a sqaurebody part in a certain color. I have had it out for a month or so now locally with no bites. In this thread, I've seen 4.

This is kind of a deppressing thread. If all these trucks were in one place, think of how many nice ones you could build from the all remnants.

This is what happens when you buy a "project" vehicle, but the rest of your life catches up with you.
