Just wondering if anyone found cars, parts, lit etc. that had potential to be a goldmine, only to have it slip thru their hands? I did, over the last 40+ I'm not a mech/tech, but having been a parts guy at many Ford garages in MI, biggies to small mom&pops' around the state. I applied @ one tiny place & literally had to step over,around & ontop of then-vintage hoods and fenders just to get thru the parts room. Then I was in a used-to-be Chevy store scrounging the rafters & found a large box of Chevy tail light and parking light lenses-all new, all late 40s to mid 50s. Behind that box was a bigger box wrapped in twine & covered with lots of dust. I tore open one end & saw a complete lower seat bench for who knows what? But the mother lode was at yet another place I worked that was built during WWII - I know cuz the old parts mgr came in one day & started talking about "when he was a kid". The old place had an upstairs room that nobody liked to go into - if you peeked in it you'd know why! Dark, dusty and generally filthy. But I'd been in worser places so I entered. WOOD boxes with shipping tags on 'em from the '40s! A Model A (I think) wheel/tire assembly-NEW!, a complete front windshield with crank-out section-glass & all. Side vents, windows, frames, outside visors, moldings! Shoebox fenders & quarters, decklids etc. But one box really stood out. I did some research & found that it was a complete engine rebuild kit for a Lincoln V12 engine - pistons, bearings, the works. I asked the boss what to do with the stuff? He said-dumpster. OH NO! I was a young kid, couldn't afford to buy it but hated to trash it so called a guy I knew who collected old car parts. He looked at it all & offered the boss 5 bills - SOLD. My buddy took boxes, cartons, sheet metal - enough to fill a small trailer. I was sick but at least it didn't go to the landfill & buddy made it right with me. I'm quite certain that stuff made quite a few restorers's day!
