$1800.00 for a used 5- ball carb. but my pile is not worth $30000.00 realy! i guess i will have to part it out someday ha,ha. charley
Funny how that works
The value of our "stuff" only matters if we are going to sell it during our lifetime.
After we are gone our survivors get to have their way with it: keep it, ebay, live auction, for sale ads, let it go for pennies on the dollar, or the scrap metal yard. They get to find out what the stuff is REALLY worth. What do we care then??
My children do not want to deal with Everything that I have. To be sure, a couple of the cars are desired along with some spare parts to support them and many of my tools and technical books and manuals. As for the rest of my collection (stuff): "Dad, please get rid of that excess stuff you don't use now while you are able to do it. Please make our lives easier; we'll be feeling bad enough that you are gone and we will feel worse having to clean out all of this extra stuff."
Harsh talk? No, not at all. There really is way more stuff around here than I will ever use or need. It IS time to do some downsizing.
I view some of the "collections" of other car folk and think "Golly, there is going to be SUCH an estate sale some day!"
He who has the most toys when he dies, wins? No, not really.
When that topic came up with my kids I politely advised them that I had not spent a lifetime collecting all my stuff just to get rid of it to make their lives easier!
