Don't hate me but look what I found on CL. Had to give $20 for it.

Wow you stole that saw! Good find! Does she run?
For $20, who cares? No, wait, I actually don't want to know whether it runs...
Dammit Mike, that's the deal of the month!! WTH can't I find deals like that!
Even if it needed a P/C assy, that's an awesome deal! SOOOOOOOOO.....did you try and get it running yet?? The suspense is KILLING me!!
I'll give you $40 for it... That'll be a 100% profit or a 36500% annualized return on your $20 investment. Don't even need a test drive...
It started on the 3rd pull with fresh gas.
Wow, you stole it!
Run her like you stole her...cause you did!
I so ***hate*** you...
But wait, their is more!
In addition to the 066 for $20, I picked up a pair of 028's that run for $30. Though one has a broken rear handle and the other is missing a brake handle.
Ok I'm not one to complain but you SUCK
you dirty bastage, you!!
I'm still waiting for a decent Stihl 090 that just needs new paint and either top cover,recoil starter,clutch cover & air filter with arm-breaking compression & 42" Cannon rollernose bar for like 100 bucks......Yeah keep dreaming
I so ***hate*** you even more...
No soup for you!
Good deal on that chain. How much was the saw?
That Is the steal of the week!!
Stihl of the week. There, I fixed it.
I think this qualifies for the all-time CL bargain hall-of-fame. Third pull? Really?
I think it would have started on the second pull. I tried one pull on full choke and it popped. Flipped the Master Lever up and it popped again and almost ran. Checked the lever and it had gone to the 2nd position by mistake. Made sure it was on high idle and it started right up.
That's all I've had time to do with the saws so far. Got to tear it apart to check it over and clean everything right.
Is that all the guy was asking or did you "beat him up'
Usually I try to start negotiating at about 1/2 of asking price. But this time I met the guy in the parking lot of a Free Masons convention. Once he started one of the saws guys wore drawn to his tail gate like flies to vinegar. There was 10 guys around the saws before I knew it.
Couldn't risk someone else offering more so I got the money out quick, said they look good grabbed the 066 first and headed back to my car
So you were actually going to **** him for $10 for that stolen saw?
I don't think I could have offered him less with a straight face.
Just dont know what to say??? Dont think it was stolen or he was a crack head (he had a car and drove it??) but even someone stealing stuff knows that they could get $75 for it! I mean thats unreal
I have no concern that it was stolen. Just an older guy cleaning out his barn. He was the deputy grand pooh bah or some such of the local masons.
