Spent about 3 hrs wandering- Found a few really good parts for my 61 Chrysler. Unfortunately, their Forward Look stock is down quite a bit from when I was there a year ot two ago. There was a nice black 61 New Yorker and a complete 61 Newport except for the glass. The New Yorker is gone and the Newport is pretty much gone.

My son grabbed two 61  horns that he plans to install in his SL500- not sure why ??

There are two 62 New Yorker 4 dr Hardtops with what looks like all the parts for AC.

I wonder if the place has changed since I was there in 2009. There was a 58 Plymouth convertible picked clean. Yesterday I asked them if its still there and was told its gone.

They got rid of so many of the cars. The 58 convert, a 57 savoy 2 door ht and a 57 belvedere 2 door ht are all gone as well as what I believe was a 58 silver special, and a 58 plaza or savoy 2 door sedan and countless other 50's mopars. Such a shame!

I been dealing with that place very recently. Got a complete and I mean complete brake and clutch assembly out of a '59 Savoy and the trunk lock less key but with gasket. Engine and trans are still in the car. Super prices as far as I can tell. But fair warning this is the rust belt. Sand blasting will be in order for this assembly. With the rust on the assembly I can most likely say either no roof or windshield is in this car. It is a 4dr also ain't seen any pics of it. At any rate $125.00 for the assembly and $5.00 for the lock, plus shipping.

They are still bringing in old cars all the time!

I recently saw where they brought in 3 66, 67 Olds Toronados from a collectors family who had passed away. I was able to get a tilt/tele steering column for my 67 for right
around $300.00 shipped which I consider very fair, since there are not that many out there.

I was there several years ago picking up a customers car & spent 15 minutes with the owner. I found him to be a very nice car guy!

God bless & Merry Christmas
