    I am curious what you feel was your best purchase new or used. It could be Craigslist or a purchase from a desperate dealer.

    Here's mine: Exmark Turf Tracer HP-36" Hydro 15 Horse Kawasaki. $1000. It probably had 300 hours on it. It was on Craigslist.

    What have you stolen?

    I hate to break it to you but it's not THAT great of a deal.
