Alternate compressed air sources?

I'm hoping to build a cheap air compressor for my garage. I want to run a tank or several tanks in my loft with the compressor/motor in a box below my work bench. I don't want to buy a new compressor and split it two. The fact that I'm on a tight budget also comes into play. I have an air tank off of a big rig that I use as an air pig. I was thinking of hooking a few of these up in series so the air supply lines also act as a drain (so I have only one drain line.) What about a compressor off of a big rig hooked up to an electric motor??? There's a few big rig scrap yards around here i could scour....
