Helped a friend take out this cool old sign today. Only kept the plastic sides though as the rest of it was just to big to deal with. Still will make a nice wall decoration.

The place is filled with everything from service manuals going back to the 60's as well 20+ car lifts and of course hundreds of NOS parts. Just amazing to think soon it will be a pile of rubble and then of course, lots more homes and apartments!

Merry Christmas
Stu

Great score!

Were there any sales records or factory to dealership invoices in there?

I have no idea Barry as the place was in total disarray and looked like a bomb went off. Wish i could have known where to look for that stuff. There were a couple hundred of service manuals that much i saw.

I dont know the guy who is doing the clean out of the place. My friend knows him so he let her have the sign and a couple of manuals. Someone else is taking all the more valuable stuff i was told.

Dang. It is usually about this point that all the old records get tossed.

Some have been found in attics & basements & thankfully saved.

If you have a way, can you please check into it Stu?

Just back up your truck and have them load it up with the good stuff. Tell them it's cheaper than a dumpster

Awesome.

Thanks Stu!

It is well worth a shot.

Envelope or 50 boxes, more than willing to pay any shipping if they are found.

Stu,

Any paperwork I will gladly pick up and transport it to Barry. I have plenty of storage (something that doesn't exist in SSF)

Thanks

Most everything is on the internet nowadays so all this stuff is just so much wasted paper to the guy who is doing the demolition.
