That does look like the perfect family car. Easy access to the child seats, and grandpa can slide into the front seat easily. Needs a slight lift to be truly handicapped-friendly, though.

I guess this is the appropriate place to put some crazy online sales.

Government Liquidation is like ebay for new/used uncle sam surplus stuff. You can get M35 trucks for 1,500$ and other crazy stuff.

Anyone want to buy 1,400 6.2L Diesel engines for 50$?

Only 840,000 lbs.

http://cgi.govliquidation.com/auction/view?id=1891665

30-50 truck loads, I guess it'll sell for at least the scrap value. The army is converting it's hmmwv fleet to the newer 6.5L Turbo GEP blocks with the Caterpillar electronics package, so anything with a 6.2 left in it is cut up or rebuilt.

A friend of mine cleaned up on one these auctions, picked up a slew of transfer cases which we use to troubleshoot and practice on, kind of handy if you got the space for some of this stuff.

Hey, I'm not finding any Craigslist gold these days, because for the past week there's been almost nothing on Craigslist. It doesn't seem to be confined to the areas I browse, it seems to be all over. Every city I've looked at in the /car/ section, there are maybe 8 or 10 posts per day, and that's it. In other sections (at least /mcy/) things are perfectly normal. Dozens or hundreds of posts per day.

What the gently caress is going on? I haven't found any mention of anything weird on Craigslist itself. Is there like some systematic flagging of all car posts going on or what?

It could be something automated; I know my local Craigslist /car/ listing was getting hammered by automated scam posts last week and this week it's a drought of all posts. They might have stepped up the posting requirements (or duplicate detector) and old posting methods aren't working.

Yeah, but there's gonna be more than 8 or 10 legit posts per day in any major city. If that's what is going on they are are definitely overkilling a ...lot.

I am looking for a 49cc or higher scooter so I can get back and forth from work. I dont have alot of money and am about to loose my job over this. I do have 17 inch rims that I can trade for a decent scooter. Even if it doesnt start ill considering trading as long as there isnt alot of body damage. So if you have a scooter you dont use or cant sell, please email. thanks for looking

And no mention of the other dimensions of these rims.

No kidding... it'd almost be worth it to buy a one-way ticket to LV, buy that little beauty and drive her back east... if that were local I'd really consider buying it.

And people think I'm crazy, but I'd still love to have one of those early 80's Subie GL wagons (the 4WD ones) that you could drive pretty much without oil, coolant or tires ;-) those drat little things were nigh indestructible.

Looks like they switched it to break down it CTO and CTD - car/truck by owner, and car/truck by dealer. I don't really see the benefit though.

I guess the checkbox for that was too hard for some people. Maybe it's some database optimization or something.

Why get one of those expensive F150s when you can get one of these?
