Post Pictures Here of your better or best locker finds
« on: March 13, 2011, 11:31:14 PM »
There is another thread with a similar name, but it got corrupted by a fair amount of off-topic bickering and so I thought I would start one here...not trying to steal anyone's thunder, just trying to give a clean start to a PICTURE thread.

Please, if you don't know how to post AN ACTUAL PICTURE in a thread, learn how. Please don't ask here how to do it. Do some research on your own...here's a hint, look at the bbc tags above when you post an answer AND a picture.

I'll start with what I would consider one of my best finds. I got this in my 268th locker purchase in July, 2009.

I don't own any thunder, so steal away  :D.

That is awesome and I'd totally keep it. Assuming it was in running condition.

I agree w/ posting pics. Sometimes I just skip over the links. I'd much rather see the actual pic. I use photobucket. It's easy as pie.

BTW, can I just still post the creepy/weird pics or is this thread just for really good finds?

Pugzilla...sure, post your scary one here. It's a good pic !

As to the quad I got. It ran like a top; a year 2000 I got about 18 months ago. It had the key and needed a new battery, but started right up.  Took me a full 11 months to get this cleared with dmv and Honda Finance but it sold in 10 days.

I liked it, but my time in the outdoors is spent hiking so it didn't fit for me.

Did you make any real money on it after all was said and done is the real question?

Locker cost $2500 (it was a pod).  I sold the quad for $2500. All other items about paid locker off. Net on locker was $1800, so I guess you could say I made $1800 on the quad.

I had plenty of $750 to $1000 offers while I didn't have the title, but I held out. In California the only place you could operate one without a green tag is private property (or you could take it to Mexico or some other states). If you want to go on state or nat park land in CA you need title and green tag.

Does $1800 count as "real" money ?  ;D

Sure!  That's Great money...I know I'd take it

I have just heard that with title and outside lien issues, these types of items can be a real difficult sell

And THAT my friend is when patience, persistence and perseverence comes in.
