just found a bunch of cedar for my canoe build on CL, with router bits although dunno about the bits yet, some of it is milled already. So far I have found my porta condo and a sailboat which was supposed to just be a trailer on CL. Then I had a boat with no boom. Found the boom on CL, but after I had started making one. No biggie, the wood gets reused as a spar on another project.

what is your best Craigs list score?

DanHere in Seatlle, we don't have a real dump (it's been outsourced) and we're not allowed to "shop" at the transfer station :mad:

It's annoying, 'cause everytime I go there, I see useful stuff sitting in the metal recycling area or the old appliance area.

3 units of Honduran...$100, $25 to deliver. Not all of it was usable, but it was worth well in excess of $1000 if I were to pay retail. I still have WAY too much of it!

Best ever score on Craig's list is easy for me.

I challenge anyone to beat this one. It took me 1.5 months of watching and emails and timming all of it like a master chess game along with an incredible amount of "luck" which is said to be preparation to act on opportunity by some.

In June I was able to buy this car being advertised as one of 3200 some odd XJR factory hot rods.

In fact it was one of 36 99 identical test models (anthracite metallic black with ivory piped interior and every known option)made in Dec. of 98.

I paid less than $00.07 on the dollar of it's importation sticker dealer price. Only 96 K miles and all receipts back to when it was a dealer demo.

note the S/C engine and the wired computer CATS shocktower covers.

And a pristine VDP RollsRoyce like interior complete with real sheepskin fleece floor mats on top of the carpet.

And the super size 178 mph factory tires, need as a one of 36 special it has no limiter.
