Had a chance to sell some of my deuce grille shells, just couldn't do it? I've still got a 50X90 about 1/2 full of just stuff and a storage unit full of better stuff accumulated in the almost 40 years I've been in the chassis business. Most of it will bring nothing at my estate auction.

I think this is a good time to help out those younger hobbyists by selling at bargain prices or giving them parts to help with their projects. It can help keep the hobby alive with new blood being able to finish an old Ford without spending mega bucks.

Here, here. If anyone is in this generous spirit, please let me know. I'd love an original '32 shell for my roadster. I'm not a youngin', but I still in game at 47.

We're just moving and will have a larger shop; which will be good to go through stuff and hopefully downsize somewhat. My plan is to put stuff together for each project so if something were to happen to me, my wife and kids to figure out what a had.

".... selling sucks."

Buyers want to text ... then they want pictures, lots of pictures.

(It's easy to sit on your ass in your underwear in front of your computer and collect pictures.)

Texting? It's what is called "an arm's length transaction."

Anyhow, it's just me. It's painful to put up with some buyers.

( ... "elling" sucks, too.)

Moving is a great motivator to get rid of stuff. I am a pack rat and my wife is even more of one. She grew up with nothing and can find a use for everything.

When I left my 4000 sq ft shop on the farm and moved to a smaller location, I sold over 20 tons of scrap iron I had accumulated behind the shop. I even cut up a 32 Ford chassis that I couldn't give away. Don't panic, it was a long wheelbase BB chassis. There were several other frames from odd makes but a lot of just plain junk! There was still a lot of things I just couldn't part with and will die owning.

Her plans are to cremate you and bury you in a headlight bucket

My wife tells me that if I were to die with all my junk she would dig me up and kill me again. Can you feel the love of old Ford parts. Dave/Green Bay

Kube - a wise decision. How many times have we heard of a hoarder passing and his collection of parts gets hauled to the junk yard to be crushed because the heirs didn't want anything to do with the stuff.


Every one in the old car hobby seems to lament this, but they keep on hoarding.

Hate to hear the time has come Kube. But appreciate the opportunity you are potentially affording us Barners by offering your parts for sale. Tim Ayers - same age as you and hope to continue piddling with these old Fords for another 47 years!

I just received some old flathead parts from a friend who just recently passed away.Most is old worn out stuff but I took it because otherwise it would be scrapped.It was sad really going through his stuff.I had the same thoughts about my wife being stuck with all
my old junk and will probably be having a realistic sort out in the spring.Thing is who wants old 6v generators,old cylinder heads and exhaust manifolds etc.... Id gladly give it away rather than bin them.
