Worth every penny. I got a "free" land rover once. I "rented" a trailer for a bottle of rum, paid a case of beer for the truck, maybe $25 in gas. The thing nearly cracked in half when we winched it onto the trailer. I gave some parts to friends, sold a few bits and sold what was left for $200. When the guy who bought it came to pick it up it DID crack in half when he was winching it onto his trailer. A few humerous (to me) observations

1) I retrieved the truck from NH, traillered it to Mass, then sold it to a guy from NH.

2) The most valuable thing (priceless actually) associated with the whole experience was the look on my wifes face when we pulled into the driveway.

(note the nice wheels in the picture were mine..we used them to roll the beast)
