Picture of me leaving bright and early in the morning on the first trip to Metro Metals in Portland with this new truck/trailer loaded with scrap metal:

The trip went well as shake down cruises go.  I learned some things about my new 1979 GMC and salvage salvage trailer - as hoped.  The trip was worthwhile. Please use our handy CLICK TO BIGGIFY to make pic larger.

Thanks man! I find that this particular GMC is what might be called a "gentleman jim", in that it was built with a pick up box on it and dual wheels a "doolie" if you must. The springs are a bit soft for my use, but I just happen to have some springs off a REAL 1 ton truck that I just today dragged into the shop...that's about a $1500 dollar load. I don't do it often, but getting better rig might make it more possible.

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
