My grandfather told me a story once of how when he was a boy in the mid thirties, there was a company still selling Fordson Model F tractors out of a catalogue. A local dealer would buy maybe 6 of them every winter. They'd come by freight car boxed up and disassembled I guess for easier transport. The dealer would hire half dozen men or so, usually farmers looking to make some extra money on the off season, and they'd spend a week or two assembling for him to sell in the spring. This reminds me of that.

Henry, Stan and Ollie had their share too as well as Harold Lloyd and others. Buster was the easiest to find.

The first swap meet I ever went to had fourteen sellers! (True!)

When a customer brings in a Subaru for a pre purchase inspection, we do the same thing. If they don't pay our charges we give them their car back like the photo above.

just sayin'
