Kid started out with a "trained" ant and ended up with a whole store full of stuff.
Life imitating art.

Ryan, if I was closer I might trade you some cash for that Kohler. Good luck with your barter experiment.
You can drive a GT down and get it! LOL!

like used car salesmen.
But, the whole concept of the show, and the fact that it's probably a true sign of the times, I find interesting.
About 3 weeks ago, a guy had an ad for a GT on KIJIJI. he wanted to trade tools, motorized stuff
I thought, Ok, and offered a truck cap I had sitting around doing nothing. He was nice enough to email me back to tell me the
GT had been traded away.
After I asked him,
He told me he got a brand new in the box plasma cutter (1200 value) Also said he'd had the GT listed a few weeks prior
to this ad for 220, but no bights. On the show, they say it's a 12 billion dollar a year industry in the USA.
During these hard times, I can believe that. People don't have cash, but are will to part with something, that is not important
to them, in exchange for something that they need, or can make a few bucks off.
Ryan, I wish you luck in your ventut

I saw it once, enough for me! As with most "reality" shows, didn't look very believable. ~~ Lowell
Same here. I watched it for the first time a couple days ago. Four trades to go from $300 to $8000 is a little much for me, but then as they say there's a sucker born every minute.

I figure, what is the worst that can happen? I keep the engine and use it in the future. I will keep everybody up to date, I haven't done anythingsince I got the engine out.
