Alright this just came to my mind and it might be a little crazy and some may even call me cheap for it but I thought Id see what you guys say. I thought about today maybe collecting cans in order to buy a cj. Number one your probably thinking I should just get a job, but I have one but college is expensive. Around where I am I can get a decent cj for around $2500 and that would be about 4000 cans. Is this crazy and am I just dreaming or has anyone ever thought of this before? haha.. Or if anyone from my area would be interested in helping by setting cans aside that would be awesome. Im still contemplating the idea but I think it could work..I'm so tired of driving my moms mini van... Thanks guys
Ditto on checking the math. Not only on the cans but on the cost of the Jeep. You won't get a "decent" CJ for $2500. Remember you live in the rust belt, and jeeps, especially CJ's are very very prone to rust.
It would take quite a while to save up $2500 for cans. It takes roughly 30 cans to equal a pound. 1 lb of aluminum is around 80 cents. It would be better to not drink soda/beer and save that money to put toward a CJ.
My uncle does this for money on the side he makes 150a month give or take he also collects golf balls from golf courses he makes a lot of money doing that unno why he does these things he's I think a CEO at mead
Alright I got it, yes that was a stupid math mistake it would be about 50,000 cans haha it was just a thought though. Im probably not going to do it but yes I have looked at jeeps on cl going on 6 months when I had the money at the time, and there were decent ones that weren't rusted out for around 2500. But thats beside the point, I think I'll go restore another old boat first and try and make a profit. Maybe I'll get lucky.
