    I visited a friend recently, and remembered to take my camera along for a change. The following pictures show a small part of what he has stashed at this location, and even smaller part of the total of rare and desirable traditional speed parts he has stored in two tractor trailers. Or was it four?
    I can't remember, but there's enough for a very healthy retirement fund, and he indicated that he was going to start liquidating a lot of stuff.

    When it becomes available, I'll do everything I can to make it available to the HAMB - but he knows what its worth - and knows that traditional rodding is the hot ticket right now, so don't hope for any steals. But there will be a lot of hard to find parts available.

    Sorry, this will be the last.

    I didn't get pics of the NOS set of Ardun heads that are still wrapped. The small window mags are from a midget, and are 12".
    The lunchbox, while not traditional, is pretty cool, I thought.


    The last picture is of his guards that roam his property. I've known him for years, and known them as long, and I won't set foot in his yard until they are in the playpen.:eek:

    No, that's a '39 Willys. The two axles on it are Anglia spindled.

    I don't think he has any flathead Caddy stuff, but he had 70 some-odd Ford and Merc flattys. He's been collecting stuff since the 50's, and his shop was a dealer for Isky and other speed parts. They used to do a lot of tuning for racers of all types.
    The Y-blocks are 292s, the Caddy with tri-power is a '57. He just bought the Olds in the first picture - it has an Edmunds manifold, and a Cadillac trans that's adapted through Ford tranny adapters.
    He plans on building a drag car with the '34 pickup body.

    Wow lots of neat stuff. Seriously it looks like my Dads place, but he keeps it a little neater. Nice to see stuff still about.
