"New" Chain Saws!

By Crazyfast79TA

I scored these chain saws at the "Sales On 38" this week end! The first stop we made was at Gunn Park where there was multiple vendors set up. The first one we came to was still setting up and didn't have prices on anything. I was eyeballing the chain saws while Michelle was checking out some other things. There was some other people coming up looking at the other stuff, too. I asked him "how much?" He said "make an offer." Michelle was feeling kinda rowdy and blurted out "5 bucks!" He chuckled and said "maybe on that one" and pointed at the McCulloch. A lady asked "how much for this jacket?" Michelle said "5 bucks!" The guy took that. Another lady asked about a picture frame there. Michelle said "5 bucks!" He took $3. I kind of passed up the McCulloch because the pull cord was hanging out. I really wanted the Poulan because it looked fairly new. He told me to make an offer. Once again Michelle blurted out "5 bucks!". He said it would take more than that. I offered $50. He shook his head and said he'd take $75. I told him I couldn't do that. He wouldn't take less than $65. Once again Michelle blurted out "5 bucks!" He agreed on $55. I asked him "so it's '5 bucks' for the McCulloch?" He agreed on $10. So it was $65 for both! The McCulloch had a goofed up recoil so I couldn't even try to start it. The Poulan was a hard pull. He said that was why he was getting rid of it. He had a bad shoulder and couldn't pull it. He told me it hadn't even had 2 tanks of gas run through it. After a few good pulls it fired right up! We shook hands and was off with my "new" chain saws! We went on down the road to the other sales and on our way back down the other side when we were heading home we stopped at another one. It looked pretty ratty but we looked anyway. Michelle pointed out a chain saw case sitting on the floor under a table. Guess what the price tag said... $5! Michelle and I just laughed! I looked a little closer. It was a Poulan case. It looked about the right size so asked the lady if I could run it out to the truck and check it. It was a perfect fit! "5 Bucks" and it's sold! So now Michelle and I have the "5 bucks!" funny to share!
