Memorable Automobiles from The Past:
Son Mark was enjoying flipping houses down in Florida. During that time he also took up scrapping. His scrapping also had a side affect. He scrapped while visiting in NC. Most of the time he sold the ‘stuff’ at the scrap yard before he left. BUT good intentions do not always pan out so he had scrap metal at his daughter Sherece’s house and ours.
He now is interested in ‘fast pace’ stocks on the market, and hasn’t been home in a few weeks. Soooo being a good dad and Grandpa, I decided to get the scrap to the scrap yard. Easier said than done.
I needed my utility trailer, but I had not updated the tag since 2017. So first to the DMV. I really expected some problems since the tag has a NC tag and I am now a resident of Florida with all vehicle tags Florida.
Well was I surprised. To bring the tag up to date would be around $60. “Mr. Darnell would yo like a lifetime tag for $106.00?”
You bet, so now I have a tag that expires in or near 2099. I let her know I expected to see her again when I renewed!
Oh the scrapping? It took a day to dig it all out (365 lbs) and get it sold, the total EARNED $14.65. Wow what a way to make a living….. NOTE: I also looked like a scrapper by the time I finished. LOL
Enjoy life, it is the only one we have.
