Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Just opened a big can of worms???????
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By ROBERT BERGSTADT on Thursday, September 07, 2017 - 04:57 pm:

We are putting a new roof on one of our sheds and noticed one wall is in need of repair so we decided to clean out this building and do some repairs, our neighbor has a building up for sale so we asked to rent a space for a few months for storage and he was kind enough to let us use it, now with most of the items moved ( not all yet ) they just sold the property and we need to get it all moved back asap, problem is I do not know if it will all fit
see some photos
now I got a call today and a man wants to sell me a ton of used parts, hope I have the room, this is only one of the 3three buildings we own
Bob

Nice looking supply of parts.

Looks like you need to get a hold of some warehouse racking to put along the walls. Then you can store items 3 dimensional.

Wish you where my neighbor, so the Kid and I could pick though your piles!!

That would make one heck of a garage sale! My wife better not tell me I have too much junk again. Jim

How about an itemized list of all the parts with condition and price of each. I figure it would run about 4,000 pages and 300 pounds- so don't send it first class.

Didn't I see you on a certain TV show?

Bob, you need a few more parts! :-) Certainly are low on your stock of radiator shells!

No wonder we can't find parts.

Now I don't feel so bad about all the stuff I have to sort. I don't have so much after all. :-)

Parts for every year of Model T ever made...... and one set of hub caps for a '60 Rambler American.:-)

Wait till I get to the other two buildings, this one here has boxes full of small parts that have not been seen since 1980 and there is still more in the building not been moved yet, Bob

Perhaps it is now time for your Autumn Inventory Reduction Sale.

Want to do your heirs a HUGE favor? Start selling yesterday. Nobody "needs" that amount of stuff.

I thought I had a lot of crap! Thanks for posting Bob! I feel much better now. :-)

Bob: Just my opinion:: It has the appearance of being a "HOADER", JUST KIDDIN. I guess you are a sales place for used parts, or yo0u sure have a lot of project facing you!!
Good luck and stay positive!

So, at one time you had a lot of Model T's and were wondering how Henry put them together and you were going to write a book about how to assemble one back together yet w/o quite figuring it out. At least you keep trying.

That's still not enough. Didn't see any triple gears.

Robert- I had no idea that your inventory was that vast. You have moved up towards the top of my vendor list...

I never realized the hubcaps on the Model R Ford were so big!

Thank you all, yes triple gears are in boxes and this building is where it is stored now, problem is its going back to a smaller building, Bob

We will not know what all is in here as most of these boxes have been buried since the early 80's will be sorting a lot as we bring it back in a few weeks, Bob
for the ray gun make the building larger not parts smaller, Bob

Was just down by Bob less than 2 weeks ago to pick up a pretty descent pickup box to eventually switch out on my roadster. Had not been down there since the early 80's and place looked almost identical to how I remember.
He gave me a tour of a lot of the parts he had and a couple cars he had for sale. Saw most of the stuff he had pictured on here and he does have a lot of nice parts. He had lots of very cool old toys and collectables for sale too.
I almost always order from him when I need something too because he's close enough where if I order it's almost always there by the next day!

Thanks for the tour Bob!

Nice '25 box !

The showroom appears to be a bit "busier" than I recall when I stopped in to visit Bob Sr. & Faye some 20 + years ago !!!

By the way, is that the coupe I just looked over on eBad a few hours ago?
