    I really doubt it - the bidding put the combined price for the 4 around 20k - steel is about $45/a ton right now - he'd get about 2500 bucks at the scrapper...

    They'll live on somewhere - maybe not all 4 but you could certainly get 3 to live on

    Matt, sorry for the delay-had a small construction project on the place that could not wait-.

    Here are some pics.

    Still thinking about what price to ask but be assured it won't be any where near $20,000 LOL!
