and what does that translate to?

 

Probably it's been sitting for 30 yrs with a dead battery and old gas in the tank.

Not for mowers, but when I was hauling a lot of scrap cars I used to get this call a lot.

 

Junk car owner: I have a junk car.

Me: what can you tell me about it.

JCO: Well it is a XXXX and it runs great - all it needs is the engine put back in.

Me: Put back in?

JCO: Yeah, it is in the trunk.

She couldn't drive worth a hoot, and wrecked it every time she drove it.

 

"ran when parked" = 20 years ago, but we had to have it hauled to where we now are selling it.
