found a new parking spot for the old rover
« on: September 04, 2008, 10:04:18 PM »
at least for this weekend during the garage sale.  maybe it will bring some traffic to look at/buy it.

at the bottom of the driveway, on a rock:


the front end of rovers never have flexed very well, but this isnt too bad with only a 2" lift:


from across the street:

LOL....If I had the cash, I would pick it up from you.  I think that is the perfect location for a rover to be displayed.  Although, from the last pic, looks like it is just sitting level like it would in the drive way ;)

You should put a sign right in front of it: "please keep of the grass"

Ha!  I think for that vehicle, you should have a sign that say "Do not color outside the lines." with a red circle and line through it.

Its on a couple of the rover boards, but thats about it.  I think my craigs list ad for it expired.

still asking 4,990.  I could have sold it a long time ago if I were willing to take $2500 for it.  But I dont want to part it out and go down that road.  I want to find someone looking for a good trail truck and keep it together.   And, its good not to be in too big a hurry to sell it.  It has come in handy a couple of times.  and, if it hasnt sold will probably get some good use this winter too.

It will sell, like a modified Audi that wont be parted it just takes time for the right buyer to come along. Recent highs on fuel costs don't help either, but price are coming down and as long as everything else stays good (hurricanes, terrorists, etc.) I think prices may be pretty stable until next Summer.

Also, as we start to get snow and those prices drop, people start worrying more about needing 4WD/AWD than fuel prices.
