    The rest of the Buicks. The woody is very rare and worth big bucks restored. Anyone brave enough?

    Yes, you must be talking about Chase's in Camp Douglas. Still there. Kinda high priced. About 5 mi. from me.
     
  14. edwardlloyd,...thanks a bunch for those pics.
     
  15. There's lots of cool stuff in that yard...found a few 392 hemi's...
    but i don't like his pricing policy. asks what you want to give him for the parts, you tell him a price and he usually doubles it

    Terrible Tom: Yes, you are right, it is Camp Douglas ! (Camp Roberts is near Paso Robles, CA, an old home area.) It has been 30+ years since I lived in "Hustler, WI" trying to get back to the land, a popular trend at the time. But I made friends with locals who showed me some great old car dumps and old family stash pre war cars in machinery sheds (not for sale, of course). I always remember the yard in Camp Douglas because it did have '50's Hemi cars and old Buicks & nailheads (my other favorites).
    Hard to say what is useable as far as engines go. I don't doubt the winters have cracked many blocks. Boo Hoo! (I think their primary biz was a tow yard.)
    Thanks for keeping me honest !

  19. I think you will find that the the wooden drum in the first set of photos is from a tannery. The hides were put in there during various steps and each step often had a different drum.

    I used to live in Johnstown-Gloversville N.Y. which was at one time and still is to a limited degree a major center for tanning and finishing leather. There were some of these drums around the abandoned mills and when I asked about using one to make a hot tub I was warned about the chemicals that had leached into the wood over the years.

    Steve.

    I'm pretty sure Kesslers was a place my Dad and I stopped at af few years ago. Lots of neat stuff, and lots of parts. We also noticed lots of cars with trim pulled off and just laying on them. as well a piles of trim and other good stuff pulled off sitting by the "office". After asking about the prices on a few parts, and deciding it was above what we felt was fair, we understood why there were parts piles all over! Obviously, people pulled stuff before asking the price, and were then shocked when they were told what it would be!

    need the window out of that willys aero
     
  22. ...guess you have to tell him half what you wanna give!
     
  23. I was waiting for someone to say that...no he's no dummy, I'd assume that's why some of that stuff is still sitting there.
    There was a W motor sitting right by the side of the road with factory chrome valve covers, when i asked he said 'not sure i wanna sell that unless you make a GOOD offer'
    Fun yard to walk though.
    He made mention of a few old hot rods stached in building around there and i'm assuming he owns a lot of real estate around the year for rentals.

    Winter is best time for prices. Taxes due end of Jan. Also no one else there.
     
  29. They used to have a couple of late '30 Willys sedans...gone now...my friend got one.
    There was another great yard about 15 minutes from this one where I got several Willys parts over the years, but it is gone now... I remember a very nice Morris Minor convertible. Best time to go to that neck of the woods is late fall or early spring...this will help you avoid the ticks, bees and mosquitos. If you go in the middle of winter, you better know where the stuff is...the snow gets deep. I have a cabin about 20 miles south.
