Happy Thanksgiving FL Lawn Turds

  1. Ivan I agree with what your saying too. The only thing when buying an old vehicle is you just don't know what your going to get. You can get a gem that is in awesome shape and well taken care of or something you have to keep doing money into. Sounds like you got stuff that are working great though. I have heard many people getting 300k out of thier tundra, and that is exactly what I plan on doing with mine.

    Mike, you know I like you so don't take this the wrong way. But you can put me in that "old school" thinker category. All our houses in Florida are de valued but for me I would never squat in a house rent free and treat my personal obligation like a business. For me the biggest problem with the economy and this country is that there aren't enough old school thinkers anymore. The walk away and let someone else suffer for our actions is what gets us into these messes. As a matter of fact even in business I wouldn't walk away from a deal just because it didnt turn out the way I intended it too. It would be a lesson learned and not repeated. You win some and you lose some.

    You can also look at it from the standpoint of the banks never expected the loan to succeed to maturity. I'd say he beat the banks at their own game.

    Just like any other conversation a group of guys might have, the conversation naturally flows to different subjects related to the people in the conversation.:laugh:

    There is a Legal and Moral Issue here. In many people's eyes Legally he is good, Morally he is a skunk.

    No more than the realtor, appraiser and mortgage broker that all conspired to sell a product worth twice what any house in the area was worth. Morals have gone out the window on all fronts these days.

    With plenty of sarcasm.... a tiny example of banks' morality.

    Some of us still have a conscience and have to look in a mirror each morning to shave.
