Stupid Luck: $5 Zuk
Yes five dollars. A few weeks ago I stopped a guy that was driving by the house in an 88 Sammi. It was in really bad shape and I offered to help him with it. Dude said he wanted to sell it for around $200 and we exchanged numbers. Fast forward to yesterday while taking my kid to school she hands me a key without saying a word. I figure its a house key that she had while we were away and shoved it in my pocket. I get home and find a note that reads "Sam says you can have the car". Putting the puzzle together I look at the key and call the guy up where he tells me that somethings wrong with the "thing"(clutch) for the transmission since his cousin tried to drive it and its about five blocks from my house. I find it, turn the key, and it starts right up, with a burned out clutch(friction disk?).
Anyway he comes by and offers me the truck for $5.00 gas money and promises to bring me the title!!!!
Capn Crunch (the notorious) swings by to help and the Sammi is now mine, comfortably resting in the garage. BTW, the city(DC) was all over this truck. There was over $230 in tickets on the windshield, two TOW stickers on the windshield and parking enforcement and a contractor tow truck were cruising the neighborhood just after we shut the garage door. Another small victory as we deprived this ticket crazed city of enough bucks to more than compensate for my own parking tickets. AND........I got another Sammi for five bucks!!!!!
