    Good heavens....there is some juicy stuff sitting around that place. Hurts like hell to see this kind of treasure rotting away, though.

    No need to get your panties in a bunch. Most often pics don't come when quoting, in case you haven't noticed. I just asked a simple question.

    Three cylinder flattie? I think I can honestly say I've never heard of one. With individual cylinders, no less. What the hell would THAT be on?

  17. I see an Excelsior-Henderson, a Model A coupe, and a Rolls Royce (in the last pic).

    Is there a prize? Do I get my pick of projects? I only want one! :D

    All I want to know is if this is just a bunch of mental masterbation...?
    and is any of this for sale? or just a tease?
    if for sale, is it in the States?

    If this isn't B.S. it may be the collection of R.B. Minges, North Carolina Pepsi franchiser that became the first Mountain Dew licensee in 1955.

    the guy I got my roadster body from bought part of the Minges estate.
    thats how I have the newer pics of the ford factory racer.

    We have a winner. Here is a few more pictures of the stuff. It is all gone now, but at least most everything was saved. This is a pretty tough crowd. Everyone likes barn finds, and photos like this prove they are still out there. Thats all I was hoping to show.

    Yes they sure are out there. So are some of our members lately too. I think it's kool to see these treasure troves opened up even if I don't get any of it. And BTW, that's a 6cyl that was refered to, not a 3.

    Sorry..I'll just speak for my own cranky ass self:D..
    I just hate a dam tease..:p

    but what you say is true..good to see it opened up shown and sold..rather than forgotten about abandoned, and rotted to nothing or worse yet..crushed

    But i still hate to be teased
