    Those of you in the Northern California area probably already know of "Big M" For the rest of you here are a few pics. John is a hell of a nice guy and he's got A LOT of 50's and 60's sheet metal, engines and restorable cars. This is the first time I've ever been there. Enjoy.

    It is called Big M Automotive. It is in Williams Ca. (juncture of I-5 and Hwy20). You can see it form I-5.
    To Be technical:
    271 7th Street.
    530-473-2225
    There are actually two separate yards. There is way more than I took photo's of.

  10. That dog looked thirsty even before I read it licked your shoes.

    Nice photos; saw a sliver of a convertible that looks promising.

    No such thing as a Convertible Hearse
    Technically referred to as a Flower Car
    Typically would follow behind the hearse
    I had a 56 Cad Hearse for about two weeks in about 1960
    My favorite grandma mentioned it made her uncomfortable
    And that ended what I viewed as my Caddy Station Wagon

    Big M will ship, basically anywhere in the world. He also has a lot of Finned mopars. Great guy to deal with. He will sell whole cars.

    That air cooled Franklin is cool, I'd love to see more pix of that if you took em.

    The "Cadmino" is probably a flower car. The rough welding was probably originally covered with a padded top so it didn't need to be very nice.
