    Sell? Donate? Use as non-lethal projectiles? Couple of air-maxes, some dunks, court forces,. etc.

    Send them to AirFob and he'll sell it to some idiot sneakernerd after he cleans them up and make them look 9/10.

    Since it's the season of giving, you should donate them to charity.

    yes, as long as they were staying in the 5 boroughs, Westchester and/or Nassau county or Newark airport I would have to. At the same time, Icould make refuse the ride due to safety reasons or say that your not giving me a destination to drive to. Personally, I would have to judge on the characterof the rider and his intentions before making any such decision. Also, how much are we talking about? My time in that god forsaken automobile is valuable.

    interesting...I always thought that you had to have a destination... I always see cabbies writing down their stops in their logs.
    ..and the $$ would be more than enough for a full day's work.

    Yea I've been thinking about sending some of my old beat up kicks to charity. They're taking up too much space.

    Those days of writing down destinations are way over. Ever since the GPS installations, never have to write down anything since it's alllogged in when you activate the meter. That's the reason why some drivers, when requested to do long rides or some out of town fare, they will not turn onthe meter so there's no log of the trip. No log, no history, no taxes to be paid on trip.

    huh. didn't know that... I guess that's why drivers were so against GPS...harder to get those under the radar fares?


    sorry for the thread hijack.
