That would work for old tractors if you add
It ran when parked

"Running when parked" is what I say to my wife and kids every time we see a run over animal on the road.

They laughed at it.....the first 75 times I said it.

Now they just stare at me.

Sounds likes descriptions of some of the gems in my parts department. I'll have to keep this descriptive list in case I ever decide to market this antique car fleet. LOL

Dan, is that red one a rare " cab over car"?

When someone asks if it is for sale, say yes and give them a very high price. If they give you a bid. The amount of the bid is what it's worth. However, you might need to do this more than once to get a bid! :-)

Funny as hell FJ...And unfortunately true too often. Looks old. Any ideas on that?

How much would you sell it for?

I say $1.00 more than the highest offer.


Once a kid took out a dollar and I said "one dollar more than that?
He then took out another dollar and I said "one dollar more than that"
Finally he got the message!

Charlie,

I found that on the Facebook page of my dear friend Louis Mandich Jr. who owns Last Chance Garage in Unionville, PA.

So I stole it from Louie ..... :-)

Sometimes, you just have to stand your ground against all those pesky people wanting to buy your stuff. :-)

Dallas it is, it's a one off, extremely rare and of course very valuable. Might be talked into selling it if offered an extremely high price for it. Investments like this don't come along very often. Act now as I have another very interested party coming to look at it, you don't want to miss out on this one. Just think you could be the fifteenth or sixteenth owner.

Dan,I need the coolant reservoir cap from that black Lincoln if it still has it. :-) little red plastic cap with a ring on it to retain it to the tank. Seriously,the parts stores around here,even when shown where it goes and what not, have no idea what to call it and it won't show up on the computer.
By the way, the county I live in says this car is worth 6500 bucks.


Got a tax bill and license plate renewal the other day for my 66F100, 6800 bucks. It is a total rust bucket,I can see the road around the gas pedal rod! I have a appointment with the tax assessor tuesday at 11 am.
This is the second time i have had to do this. Every so often they "reevaluate" and just sock a book value on everything and hope no one pays it any attention!

Mack, I have a few of these in my "parts department". I will check, hopefully one will still have it, if so I will send it to you. Your car looks good. I have had a few of these,one with three hundred and fifty thousand miles before I stopped driving it, it was a 72 and the most comfortable car I have ever owned. All were excellent cars.

Tim, I use them for parts and sell some. They are invaluable restoring the cars I have, especially the 56 I'm doing now. All the yards that had these are now gone when the price of scrap went so high a while ago. I bought this farm in 1974, then put a wanted ad in the local paper, wanted old Fords and Mercs 56 and older. Their were a lot of them sitting around at the time I got a lot of them for towing them away. I ended up with about 75 0f them.

John I saw one like the truck in your picture the guy told me I could have it if I could get it out without damaging the Pecan tree that was growing through it! I can weld but not that good.

There is a 65 chevy pickup just up the road with a oak tree growing where the engine was. It would be a job to get it out.My 62 Ez-go golf cart had a 8 inch tree thru it. I cut it down and it was going to be cut for fire wood once I got the cart off the stump.

Sadly,within gun shot range of where i am sitting there is a entire running gear and chassis of a 28 chevy with trees growing thru it. I have been letting them know off and on for years I want it whenever they decide to get rid of it. The man passed away and it was a parts car for his second wifes car. I doubt she has a use for it now in her 70's. I might check on it again in a few months. I have a rebuilt engine and transmission i could stick right in it.:-)

I love it! The best is the first line.

Mack, one of the Lincoln's still had the reservoir cap you need. Send me your address and I will mail it to you.

Thanks for checking Dan,I sent you a email with the addy.
It might go in the canned meat filter so check there."spam" filter. :-)

Oh and I managed to get the 6800 bucks value back down to 2000. :-) on the ol F100.
Guy was taking pictures of all the rust and finally just stopped and said,"will 2000 be ok"/

Yea,that will work.

Hey FreighTer Jim thanks for starting this thread,I have been hunting that silly cap for going on 4 years. It somehow got lost when i cleaned the car up real good to drive to my 30th class reunion. There was only 2 of us that drove the same car to the reunion that we drove to school. Hum,the 35 years reunion will be coming up. Dang i am gittin old!
