Whats your best horse trading story

Now I'm not that old and I have heard of family trading horses cows chickens. for other thing but. I never traded for any animals for anything. But I have been known to trade my welding and fabricating for other thing.

I did how ever trade my Dodge Dakota a truck rack I built and a paint job for a 3 ton service truck with a 14f service body on it.

Found an ad in the paper reading 1967 Mustang conv and 1973 Cougar conv, both for $1,500. Drive over to look at them....... Give the guy $1,000 and take them both.
Sale the Cougar three days later for $550, so now have $450 in the 67 Mustang conv... Buy $250 worth of parts for the car, so I now have $700 in it.
The car sits in the backyard for the next year or two and then one day I discover HR.com classified ads. I put up an ad on the car for $4,500 firm and sale it about a week later......... only made $3,800!

Moved out to a house in the country, previous owners left some camping gear in the shed, traded gear for an old snojet, fixed it (approx $30) and traded for a dirtbike fixed it up (approx $100) and rode it for a season then traded it for an 87 hyundai stellar (first car) had that for about 3 months till I sold it and bought my 1980 thunderbird and an 87 skidoo safari with cash left over. That was about 6-7 years ago now, I thought I did pretty well.

Back in the 60's when I was in high school I traded my watch for a '32 Ford roadster and rolling chassis. My mom went through the roof when I told her becasue my folks had given me the watch as a present...and "You just don't trade away presents." Fortunately for me, it was too late and the deal was done. Just had to put up with mom's stink eye for about a week or two.
Always learning...and sharing what I've learned.

This is a little off topic, but i saw a report on CBC about this guy that couldn't get a job. So his idea was to trade his paperclip that held his resume together for something. So his paper clip was traded for a pen. the pen for a door knob, Door knob for a camp stove and so on. So now I think that he is up to trading a year rent free apartment in downtown Phoenix for a afternoon with Alice cooper. His goal is to trade for a house eventually

This is his siteHERE

Pretty sweet deal for a paperclip.

1968 Firebird Convertible, OHC-6 three speed floor shift I bought in the early 80's. I saw an ad in the paper for a Firebird 400 4 speed convertible with the 6 cyl Firebird convertible as a parts car. I went to check them out. The 400 was a nice one but he wanted $4500 for it. The 6 convertible he wanted $1500 but he wouldn't sell it without moving the 400 first. I offered him $4500 for both and he said yes. Cool, problem was I only had $1000 bucks to my name at the time. I left a deposit said I'd be back the next day or two. I went home and got on the phone calling every contact I had to try and unload the 400. I found a buyer willing to buy it for $3500 so I ended up with the 6 for $1000. Put a battery in it, bought some used tires and drove it that way for a couple of years until I started upgrading a few things.
Still own it.

No animals were harmed or traded in this transaction
