    i swear i come accross the weirdest people and deals on things!
    went on a call yesterday with the police dept. neighbor complained about a cube van parked blocking view of a stop sign. i go over to check it out. van is parked on side of a bar, the owner uses it as storage. he starts he right up and moves it back away from the corner. well we are chatting and he says to me arent you the cop that owns the lawn company. i said yes and he says this van would be perfect to make a lawn/landscape maintenance truck out of. he says i sell it to you for $300.00

    my wife would kill me, if i bought it. its actually in pretty good shape, mechanically its strong, V8. nuthin a case of beer and a quick painty job cant fix

    It's worth more than $300 in scrap so I would say yes !!

    I was just thinking that. could even put some work into it, put a ramp on it and some trimmer racks inside and turn around and sell it reasonably cheap for a hefty profit. someone just looking to get into the lawn business would be all over that.

    Better get it off the ground and see what the brakes look like. I would be afraid to drive it, seeing it's been setting for so long.

    Thats awesome! I thought about doing the same thing in a few years. It would be better than pulling a trailer all of the time! For $300 you could probably even sell it again as is for $1000.
