    What happens to old UPS delivery trucks? You never see a used one on the road. --

    Is she joking? A fair amount of technology? Aside from the old DVA equipment, what is there? A beat up v-6, or inline 4 cylinder engine. Steps that will blow out your knees?

    I would love to cut one up and sell the aluminum to a recycling place. I have heard that the drive-line parts, like transmission, rear end, etc., a worth a little bit too. I have had a lot of people over the years ask me if they could buy one to make a camper or car hauler out of one. I remember many years ago when RPS started up, somehow they got a hold of an old P600 and had it painted up in their colors.
