“Anyway now I have a 4WD for one of my teen aged kids.”
I would think given the pathetic situation, you would return the vehicle to the fellow that gave it to you. Do you feel comfortable profiting off someone’s tragic mistake? Not the best lesson a parent can give a teenager unless you are raising a pack of huns.
Its a friggin gas guzzling inefficient ugly vehicle that he was tired of putting money into because he lacked the skills to properly keep it running, now it happens to be the truth of this situation that I was the supervisor over him while he was employed as one of my concrete mixer drivers.
And my 4 decades of being a mechanic with my own shop full of all the tools, lifting equipment, body and paint tools was actually the reason why he gave it to me so he says. I knew what to do,how to rebuild it its just the timing was coincidental and somewhat auspicious.
And should a person who truly and possibly did believe the end of times was tomorrow and gave his empire away to me should happen I would have no reservations about accepting, as long as it was final and iron clad.
The living must keep on living. Those that choose the path of weakness, false gods and such are getting pretty numerous. I know many of my co-workers feel a bit put off they didn’t get something free out of the blue, the same people believe the world owes them free rides and a paycheck for little or no sweat off the brow so to speak.
Everything has a purpose should one have the inner strength and conviction to carry the burden of responsibility.
