    Look's like a real strong runner. I bet it loves the cold starts. Very efficient truck for a wally world. When you plow a Wal-Mart you can't afford legit tags or insurance. Funny stuff!:laughing:

    I hope they didn't drop the insurance on the truck, I would imagine they did if its not registered any more, if so that would suck if something happened to the truck

    It's possible that truck has been mechanically sound due to routine maintenance (looks don't plow snow, durability does). No payments since it's probably been paid for many years ago, the contractor may have low overhead, and with the economy the way it is, he was able to bid the lot and make money at it. I mean, that's just a possibility isn't it?

    or maybe just maybe it is a lot truck only. just like guys have a 100,000+ piece of equipment sitting in a lot that can't be driven on the street and must be dropped on site via a low boy and tractor maybe the same is true for this as well. or maybe he just hasn't put the sticker on the truck yet since it is just sitting in a lot call them up and ask them you never know

    Maybe you could just pm the owner. I have seen a picture of that truck on this site before. If I find it I'll tell the member to pm you.

    Would you run anything else there for an almost break even job? At least if it blows up or is burnt to the ground. Your only out the minibike and Pogs you traded for it.

    it does't matter where.. it's not on the owner's GROUND! if this truck is driving around and hit an car.. just an little damage it cost $2000+ to fix. if this truck has no Ins and an Expired plate.. it's an good bait for the cops.. so CALL THE COPS.. !! see what they say. :nono:

    How do you know it has no ins???

    Who cares if the plates are expired. If it doesn't leave the lot under its own power it doesn't need plates.

    Our state sells trucks like that at auctions for a couple thousand each. If I would've won any of the large properties I bid on this year I would've purchased several of them.

    No shame in using old iron if it gets the job done.

    I don't see whats wrong with it.

    I'd rather leave that sitting in a lot somewhere versus a brand new anything or a $75,000 loader. I't not even that beat up. Throw some new stickers on the doors and a little touch up.. It's a work truck.
    It's nice to have brand new stuff but not everyone can justify buying it or even afford it for that matter. Mechanically it could be nicer than alot of trucks on here.

    here it would need legal tags on a commercial lot.
    but you think he is towing that thing around.
    geez that is a crappy wmart the truck loks perfect
    oversized and out of place just like walmart
    I like it when people get their hair up defending if he has insurance
    expired plates are a pretty good sign of the business ethic I dont care what u say.
    keep your sht current it makes you look like a 16 year old.
