    Hypnosis, sex and hot rod parts. If those walls could talk. Thanks for the tach and gauges, Mac. I'll take the OG parts over repros any day!

    Little help on this one please? It doesn't look like any other Reo speedo I can find on the net. What is it? Thanks for the help!

    Thats hilarious. That's exactly what I was thinking when I first read that post. I thought "well, sounds like a good trade, but I need to see pics of the wife first!" ha ha ha ha .....

    ** For those that have purchased gauges, I'm a little behind on shipping them out. They will go out tomorrow and saturday. Sorry, I wasn't expecting to have so many sell so fast and I got buried a little. I am not adding any new items to the "for sale" thread until I get everything sent out. Thanks for your patience!

    In the meantime, here's some pics of a few of the steering wheels from the last small load of stuff I pulled out of there.

    Also, can anyone I.D. these gauges for me? They almost look like something that would have come stock on a 60's-early 70's era muscle car? I don't recognize the "atom" logo. Any help is appreciated!

    Stopped by today to take a couple pics of the yard. Man they've hauled off lots of stuff. Can't help but wonder what we DIDN'T find that got scrapped. I know 11 348 motors got piled up. Anyway, here's what the joint looks like now.

    The last pic with with the four gauges looks like what we might have bought in the '70s from any generic auto parts store. The wood grain always cracked me up.

    Sears and Roebuck, at least for the three on the right. The little atom logo is an "SR". I know they were cheap, but now they are kinda cool actually, probably made by RAC.

    LOL, I know. I remember buying gauges for my '70 SS Chevelle and the "woodgrain" sticker came with the gauge set. Needless to say it got tossed.
    Hows the rest of the parts procurement coming? Its always interesting to see what shows up.

    Don't know how I missed this little jewel sitting in the bottom of my gauge pile. Old Stewart Warner speedo, curved glass, look how cool that needle is! Love it. I also added a few other gauges to the "for sale" thread...

    Mac, I worked for Union Pacific for years and this place was always right off the tracks, it drove me crazy wondering what was in there. I would be interested in knowing what if any vw parts are left for sale ect...
    Thanks, Ben

    This is one of the times when I miss living on the mainland, being able to go to a swap meet and find some cool piece to buy, either to use or just for the hell of it. Good luck in your efforts to move these parts and thank you for saving them from the scrapper. Eli
