I was chatting with the local landfill custodian today and he says the landfills are getting picked over after hours pretty good by people looking for copper, aluminum, batteries and anything of salvageable value. He says a scrap battery is selling for $ 8.00.........

So not sure if Mandack scale is off, but be aware of the weifgt of the vehicle you bring in. My Sable weighed at 3140 about 6 weeks ago and my Dad took one in for scrap today and filled with scrap metal and it only weighed in at 2200lbs. Somethings fishy there! And my bros took in a Jeep Cherokee and only weighed in at 2300lbs! Ford website ,3380 for that Sable.

Well maybe the price has dropped, but how can the weight drop of 2 exactly the same vehicles by almost 1000lbs?
