    Bring your trailer sold prices?

    Been venturing there for a potential old 4x4 truck purchase. Im finding it hard to believe what some of the sold prices claim to be. Last night I stumbled on a early 70ies crew cab dodge power wagon that sold for $232,000. Sure it was restored with a hemi installed but...but.. a clean original...

    Cataclysmic converter chastity belt?

    I had to laugh when I saw an ad here for a C/C chastity belt. Seriously? Our Scumbags that desperate? I thought junk/scrap yards would not buy these because they are a hot item for the douchebag thieves trying to make a buck.
