A missed chance

in Actifit5 months ago

You might think this is a piece of trash, and it probably is, but for me this would have been a great opportunity to restore and remodel a piece of shit truck and end up with a classic styled weekend car.

I was having my morning walk yesterday and the gate to this low-tier house - economically and socially speaking. I'm not judging, I'm describing - was wide open, allowing me to see all the dogs inside, the trash just spread in the yard, the couple of shirtless kids playing around, the probably-grandpa having a beer (at around 10 am) and this potentially majestic old as fuck truck.

I asked the grandpa permission to snap a quick picture. He allowed me to do it. Then I asked if it was for sale and then he just got kind of offended and replied with a harsh NO.

I mean, it's not like they're giving it any use at all, or that they plan to do something with it, but sometimes when people have very few possessions, they hold on to them as if their wellbeing depends on said possession, instead of thinking of ways of making money by selling them to try and get out of that situation.

Of course it is pretty easy for me to say this as I'm not in their specific life stage and daily situation but, one can have an opinion.

It would have been a great sell and a great buy for both of us, but I guess I wouldn't even now where to start in the process of restoring this car. I have no idea about cars and motors, but hey, I could learn I guess.

13 thousand steps, I'm proud of myself if I can be honest.

That truck might have a lot of sentimental value for him. Maybe he'll restore it "one day" if the parts ever come in XD

Oh yeah, that "maybe" has happened to all of us, I still have some crap from years ago thinking it'll be of some use in the future. We both know it won't hahaha.
