    I was browsing around the web and found this site. It says what they dont sell they will auction off. I looked at the cars and prices and i was impressed the condition and prices are fair. http://restorablecars.com/

    THe one car I would be really interested in, and there is no pic.

    Nice GMC truck on there though, that would be perfect for my tow truck idea I've been toying with.

    Great site, looks like some OK deals.

    While browsing, I found this pic of a '49 Nash steering column / instrument pod.

    I LOVE it...!!!
    Would look great in a rod.

    I saw one or two I wouldn't mind having but wonder how expensive it would be to have inop vehicles like that transported. One of the ones I saw I dont think it even had wheels on it.
     
  15. Sure looks like they're packing it in. Website says what's not sold soon will all be auctioned off.

    To kinda put it in perspective, I had a 1969 Caddy hearse shipped from Ft. Walton Beach, FL to Los Angeles for about $1200. Car did not run what so ever nor would it ever again.

    The cab was sold on that truck so the $375 was for the frame... that's what it said anyway.

    I'm surprised that one of those hasn't found it's way into someone's rat rod project. It would be perfect with a king size condom stretched over it and held on by big gobs of white silicone.:confused:

    South Dakota has been a treasure trove of good iron for a long time! The Merc I wanted was in that state as well, and sold for less than $1000. Thanks for the link, I've got it bookmarked and will certainly keep my eye on them this year. I just hope I can find some money.

    EDIT: Lot's of these pics I've seen before on either Ebay, CL, or on forums. Now just a condensed version, lol.

    I talked to Harold on the phone about the 24 dodge and he told me someone had put a deposit on it several years ago and hadn't showed up to pick it up yet. He would not sell it until he tracked the other guy down first. Sounds like a fairly honest guy that has collected these cars over the years and wants to move to the warmer climates now
