  1. Thanks. Marcel De Ley just died last June at the age of 89. That would mean he was born in 1929 and thus too young to have built the body in 1931. He also moved to the states and had a metal craft company based in CA. Interesting guy though. His sons still have a shop in CA. So thank you for introducing the possibility.
  2. Well now that you mention it - it is a cute post.
  3. Jeff, I don't recall considering De Ley of Holland. I would have to go through my notes again. I can't open the link that you sent although I am familiar with the Encyclopedia. Is there a way to copy and paste the picture? It is interesting that they did the Peerless chassis. Few European companies took on coachbuilding on American chassis' because, as you know, there was not that great a call for it. The Europeans during that period were well ahead of us in the racing department. But we certainly caught up after WWII. Would love to see that picture. Kelly
  4. I'm sure he or she is going to bring to the table the exact same thing I brought to the table over a decade ago. Nothing. Zilch in the way of experience. But tons in the way of eagerness and a willing to learn. Far be it from me to have a youngster hit its "burnout" threshold. What was I thinking. Let's close the subject. I don't want angry parents knocking down my door because junior is lying prostrate on his bedroom floor having hit his "burnout" threshold. We have to protect our young. Otherwise they may leave the nest and learn to fend for themselves.
  5. So to recap: If anyone out there has a son or daughter maybe home for the summer without a job yet and has a love of cars this would be a great way to make some money and learn a lot along the way. Even use it on their resume. I have been buying and selling for twelve years going on thirteen and I will assist throughout. Pictures have been taken, descriptions are written owners are open to reasonable offers. Would be a heck of a lot more fun than painting houses or going door to door selling pest control. Or selling your father's collection when its not your real job choice.
  6. While I appreciate your input I have already sold several of the cars. I even had the opportunity to return a Mustang to a woman that had been looking for the car since she was forced to sell it by her father-in-law when her husband went off to Vietnam. That took two weeks. If I were the buyer I would go and inspect the cars if I am close. If not they are able to send someone. So I am not quite sure what the inspection excitement in your post is all about. Perhaps you have the wrong impression of me as a fancy pants dabbling in a little American Metal. Nothing could be further from the truth. If I was just starting out, and I was young and hungry to learn and make a little money I would be all over this. As far as prices go I am pretty sure I don't need to repeat this because it is noted in almost every post - but the owner's ARE OPEN ON PRICING! So hopefully the next post will be someone that sees and opportunity and isn't afraid of a little work.
  7. Supercargirl will never stop selling Ferrari's or Maserati's or Bugatti's or Auburn's or Lancia's or Alfa Romeo's and on and on. I wouldn't make this more than it is. I've sold cars for them from the collection already. 10% is not shabby. It's hardly rocket scientist work. Posting them on this site, Craigslist, etc, sending pictures and descriptions and setting up inspections.
  8. Thanks. I will forward that to the new guy or gal that takes on the collection.
  9. Auction is not an option. Owner does not want the liability. If someone is interested and sends me the contact information the pictures and the information will go to them.
  10. Thanks George. I copy and pasted the seller's list exactly as he wrote it so I of course can change that. I am not posting the pictures and the cars because I am looking for someone to take the entire collection and all of the work that it entails with it. As well as all of the profit (10% of the final sale). These types of cars are not really my wheelhouse and try as I might I do not have the time to dedicate to them. So if I find the right person the whole project goes over to them lock, stock and barrel. And yes the prices are sort of high because they need someone to help them price them. Hence a job for the new gal or guy that would like to take it on. I am starting another side business that will be taking a lot of my time in addition to continuing to sell exceptional cars to exceptional collectors. This is my new side gig Veloce Cars Which is part of an bigger project to be announced the first of the year.
  11. I have a collection of cars in Livonia New York that I would like someone to sell for the owners. They are all project cars needing some type of work. Many of them run. They are owned by two elderly gentlemen and they really need to be sold before winter. I am very fond of these two and I took them on as a favor because they were referred to me by another client. I simply don't have the time to dedicate to this collection. If anyone has an interest in helping these two guys let's talk. I have descriptions and pictures and I can bring you up to speed. You need to have an infinite amount of patience to see this through but if you love old cars and old cranky men you will do fabulously. They really are two characters and it has taken me three years to bring them around to agree to reasonable selling prices. I have just bumped the list on this site. E-mail with your contact information and let's talk.
