Hey I was looking at my Geo today with a guy that may be welding it for me - the left side looked pretty rusty too. Damn thing started right up after a couple of weeks of sitting. Looks like that wheel is back too far just like mine is right now.
delivery was $125. we haven't decided if we'll have to have the trucking co. come back for the chassis to take it to the recycler, or whether we'll tow it ourselves (a friend has a 4wd hemi ram). the recycler is about 3 km from the house (2 mi.) we'll get about $200 for the scrap metal.
I'd also check ebay. YOu might be able to sell a few of the knick-knacks on that thing.
Kind of makes you think about the fork lift driving into a bunch of boxes in a movie - more likely it continues through the boxes and through the wall and the wall after that too! Imagine driving that thing on the road and hitting something - BAM! Hey keep the lift and use it to raise cars to work under them!! Easy way to do a belly pan!
you know, looking at that thing has me thinking similar thoughts. except more like: man, how flimsy our little cars are!
definitely easy to do a belly pan with this. i wish we could somehow use it to lift *itself* up so get at the motors. they have to come out from underneath. the technician says that's how they take them out at work - use another truck to lift up the back end and then block it. my buddy is tracking down some heavy duty jacks tomorrow. i'm going to start tracing wires to figure out how it's put together.
