quote:Originally posted by Scuba875If you look at the age of the tilt and the investment to buy a good used one today dollar for dollar it is probably one of the best earners. Look at what the used one at the show went for $3,500 or something like that. With some work and maybe another $10,000 that could be like a new ride. What ride can you buy for $13,000 that will gross 20%-25% of the lot? Of course that also depends on some factors but in general as long as it looks good and runs it makes money. I often wonder out of the new rides what the tilt of today’s era rides will be 30 years from now.When Donnie and I were driving around the country and Canada looking for a good used tilt in 94 a guy had one for sale who said he didn't put it up anymore because his help didn't like to set it up. At the time I didn't know the office end of the business. Today I know what each ride on the show grosses and what the overhead on each ride is. Knowing that information I realize what a foolish statement that was.
