A productive day

I do enjoy fixing or finding a use for stuff others discard as junk. Usually its small stuff- chainsaws, weed-eaters, lawnmowers.

Today's effort was a small 1 1/2 ton, truck damaged beyond economic repair. it had been dumped in a paddock, where it has sat for the last three years or so.

I got it for the cost of the tow, a battery and a second hand tyre- a total of $260. (plus about three hours work)

While it will never be roadworthy, it runs well and will make an great farm runabout- just what I need with firewood season about to start.
