It does provide real lording it up opportunities though when they want towing in as they don't have a radio and:
a) have run out of fuel
b) the engine has seized as its never been serviced
c) the battery is flat as they have had the boom box on so loud for so long while sunbathing and they are taking in water as they are beam on to a nice chop that has picked up
Always try to kid them about salvage rights as well, as usually they don't have a rope suitable for towing either and have to accept yours
PS Never buy a 4x4 from anyone who goes to the coast. They reverse so far in to the water as they are lazy, salt everywhere, rotting away for the next owner when they part ex it after 6 months for the new model.
