    Once upon a time in the late 1960's, there was a stack like this but, IIRC, that stack in Carson, CA. was about 3-4 times taller, and was a tremendous sight to behold from the Northbound lanes of the 405 Freeway. I've never seen photos of it on the internet but it was a huge, ginormous pile. A missing link from the past from Southern California.

    i would agree with selling some if they were desirable cars i.e. 40 fords, 32 whatever. most of mine are odd ones and some just a pile of parts bolted together. if i have learned anything in 70 years is, people look to find some reason to put down what you want for them below a realistic price. it doesn't run, the brakes aren't hooked up, it doesn't have glass, anything to get it cheap. i quit trying to sell non finished cars. if i get them running (even with a junk motor) people will buy them for more money.

    ps: why do people post that they don't have any projects on a thread that is asking for their projects?

    I try and only have two projects at a time. One to work on, one to scrounge parts for. Otherwise you have no money to do anything.

    I realized some time ago that when I put $500. into each of 3 project they don't get any closer to being done. If I put $1500 into one project there's a good chance it will get done. And that project right now is finishing my 57 which has been sitting for 25 years.
