Default Got a problem

A good friend that has helped Bonnies and their owners at least ten times is leaving the Villa tonight.

My buddy called for the engine hoist that he loaned me mmm about 3 years back.

I'm going to miss that beautiful tool, as will all NE BC members with an engine issue.

Ready for the problem? There'* a red 00 in my front yard without a motor. How would you solve the dilemna?

I just bought a good quality new 2 ton for $150. The adjuster was another $35.

Made in China but the price was right and the design and welds good. They only messed up on a couple of bolts when I assembled it. New bolts only cost another couple bucks.

I've few idea'*

{ RE: Engineless Car}
- have a massive parts party then tow the remains to the salvage yard for even more $$$
- push it out into the road and call the cops saying it was just left there
- Donate it to the American Kidney Foundation. (They didn't need a title for one of my cars)


{Re: Buddy wants hoist back}
- tell your buddy "What?" or "I gave that back years ago...didn't I?"
- offer to buy him another (cheaper) one
- GO BUY A NEW ONE YOURSELF, this of course depletes the lap dance fund.
- Back charge everyone that got use of it $50, then buy a new one. This of course depletes your lap dance fund since your 3 motors...

and lastly and also my favorite
- sell the house and by an automotive garage that not only has all that but also a lift, alignment machine, & tire balancer (You can have a room in the back of course) and BEHOLD - Purple Dino Motorsports !

Or, you could do like the guy who lives across the street from my son. Call your buddy, who has a huge back-hoe on tracks, and use that.

Get some tow rope and throw it over a very large branch, get some friends to help lift engine after you place the car near the tree. call it redneck style.
