How many of you have used Craig's List? I have been looking at it occassionally since our son Eric sold his Dakota quickly on it a few years ago. I should have bought his for the price he got, it was a little better deal than mine.
Farmers talk about Craig's List quite often on NewAgTalk. Often they make fun of the listings they find there, especially land for rent or those who want to rent it.
Before the Internet, I used the Trading Post. It was a regional weekly trading paper where I bought and sold a LOT of things. That paper got me started in my turbocharger business in the 70's when I bought out all of the chargers a guy had for sale. I turned a thousand dollars into about ten thousand on that deal.
Now I need to find a new home for the old Dakota. The Dakota has an interesting history. The first one was built in 87 and the last one was produced last year. It had a pretty good career for Chrysler but nothing like the Caravan that practically kept Chrysler alive.
I have a couple of friends in mind who need transportation right now and they both have some mechanical skills. I am going to let that play out and see what happens. Until then, it isn't winter yet and there is plenty of room here for another gas guzzler. Besides, it is a parts truck for its replacement, right? I hope LuAnn doesn't read that.
I guess I could always put it on Craig's List. They sure move a lot of stuff on there daily if the price is right.
