    good score! i had one of those.....worked great until we got the typical SE PA heavy wet snow and i couldnt push it through the snow. I then threw it against a wall and it never ran right after that.

    A friend had a set of headers for a truck he lost in a divorce. He was wanting $100 but offered them to me for $80 if I'd change a tire for him. He got an older truck with a 454 and the 5.7 headers won;t fit. When he got here, the right rear wheel was stuck on. He said he had tried a sledge hammer but nearly broke his leg.

    It took me about 10 minutes to get it off and swapped. I just loosened the lug nuts about 1/2 an inch and started rocking the truck sideways as hard as I could. I heard that POP, jacked it up, swapped the wheel and tire and even greased the inside of the wheel so the aluminum wheel doesn't weld itself to the steel drum again. He told me if he's known how easy that was, I would have paid $100.

    They are supposed to bolt right to my factory Y pipe.

    Today was the Holy Grail of free stuff. I got 2 powered sub woofers, 1 free Panasonic DVD/VHS Recorder that I fixed with 2 new capacitors and a free Home Stereo that works. Next week is the curbside cleanup and I call it Treasure Hunt. Will let you know what goodies I get.

    My buddy picked up two of these a while back and offered one to me for $50. My garage gets a little damp at times so I used this to dry it out, really moves some air.

We use the hell out of the airbag almost never even use the floor jack anymore, the pinchweld adapter works awesome for mounting cars on my frame machine. Only used the strut tool once but i was so tired of fearing for my life everytime I swapped out a coil spring, the thing works fantastic.

    Since I have the free time now...A Troy Bilt Weed Trimmer. Did about 1/4 of the backyard today.

    Also picked this alarm clock locally off CL for $5.... figure it's a fun way to wake up and turn off alarm.
    Target pops up and you shoot it to turn alarm off. Can play timed target games too.

    I got so much good FREE stuff this week, it will take me a day just to get all the pictures to post. The best was 2 old ladies put a Airen's 8hp Snowblower that is like brand new out on the curb for free (used 4 times). They held it until I came back with the truck, I asked why they did not use it, they told me it's difficult to use it. Get this, I put it on my piano dolly strapped in down and pushed it 2 miles home. No way am I letting this one get away. I will post pictures soon.
