Right. Dead trucks and tractors are the moral equivalent of yellow snow.

Those supposedly dead tractors, trucks, & so on aren't dead, actually.. They breed in the dark of the night, mainly around Hallowe'en, & have a variable gestation period. Men aren't their only keepers, though.. some of us women are guilty of it, too. Maybe it's an iron-deficiency thing??

You must be right. There are never just 2 dead vehicles in a pasture. There's a whole herd of them.

Argh. I think you're right.

Have I told you guys about the big-block Chevy 350 I found under some boxes in my basement? I had no idea it was there!

"There are never just 2 dead vehicles in a pasture. There's a whole herd of them. "... I think I've acquired a greater appreciation for my husband's cub cadet collection... it could be worse. A big block 350, eh? That would be a fun toy for my husband.

Brings new meaning to the term "truck farm."

Oh, it wasn't the whole truck. I knew where the empty truck shell was -- it was in my front yard! But I found the engine itself in the basement (kept it out of the rain, you know). And my husband still uses that for ammunition in the Junkyard Wars -- he sold that sucker for $1000, and talked the guy who bought it into hauling off the dead truck with it! So, of course, now all the dead vehicles in my yard are "valuable..."

My biggest problem: I'm afraid he may be right.
