    My buddy Dave and I went out to look at this guys stuff that was his dad's, who past away not long ago. He was a freak for Model A and T stuff.
    We had no idea what we were getting into until we walked through the door.
    This is just a small part of what has accumulated in this guys shop over the years. Almost entirely early Model T and A parts, cars, and anything you could imagine.

    This HAS to be today's modern equivalent of "El Dorado" (refernce to Spanish explorers seeking gold). The MOTHER LODE.

    I guess you can't take it with you. Un real. More pics pls!
     
  14. don't be surprised if in todays economic situation you see more of this. old collectors dying off and the next generation selling the stuff so fast so they don't have to be burdened with it. i can hear it now "so how much will you give me for all this junk?" to some asshole that only see's $$$ signs instead of helping preserve a hobby.
