You may remember me writing about my Ford Escort's transmission crapping out while driving it during a Killing Karma shoot. The transmission shop gave me an estimate of $1,200 to $1,800 to repair it. The blue book on my 1995 Escort is $900. It's been a great car and only has about 96,000 miles.
I was listing it on line for a parts car, it broke my heart. My housemate suggested that I place an ad on Craigslist for barter. I wasn't enthusiastic about it, I haven't heard too many success stories with CL. What the hell, every idea is a lottery ticket. Two hours later I got a call from some one looking for a web site for their start up business. He seems to be very competent mechanically and honest. I can't give you many details on his project yet. I will debut the finished project when it is time.
It involves bikers and Bourbon Street, sounds like a winner to me.
