Goodbye old truck #2

[Today’s run: 3.1 miles of hills in Columbus]

I am happy to report that I was able to transport and dispose of old truck #2.

I borrowed my neighbor’s car-hauling trailer and on Monday he helped me load the truck on there.

On Tuesday morning I towed it in to Columbus Scrap and they paid me just shy of $300 for the remains.  They had a fork-lift-loader vehicle that just poked through the side window and lifted it off the trailer by the roof.  Poof!  It was gone.

So the old truck was pretty much a wash in the money department.  I received $300 for the engine and transmission and then $296.10 for the remains.  I kept a few parts, not many, for use in my old truck #1 which may help prolong it’s life a bit.

I neglected to take a picture of the fork-lift-loader doing it’s thing, but I did get this picture of a pile of engine blocks.
