  1. Good used condition with some wear and a little creasing. $12.00 postpaid in lower 48 States. PayPal is fine. Best contact is by PM. Thanks for looking! Harold

  3. I've had the same percentage of losers no matter what website I use. When I list on CL, I have the following statement in every ad: "Send phone number and I'll call you. I won't reply by email." The serious buyers send a phone number, if no number the reply gets trashed. No exceptions. Most of what I sell ends-up going via eBay. Maybe 15% is through other venues, including make-specific forums (grass-roots target marketing!) The $5.00 thing really turned me off to CL for listing cars. I was skeptical about using Facebook but listed a car there anyway and it sold in a few days. I list non-vehicles wherever I can, as long as it's free (yes, many older folks are cheapskates).
  4. I'm a Plymouth P-23 guy (that's the '51 and '52 model years). Not exactly a hot collectible, but I've had a soft spot for them my whole life. I came home from the hospital in my father's '52 Cambridge and have been hooked ever since. Have had several (a few were actually drivable…). I currently have two 'someday' cars (one is a twin to the original '52). I'm hoping to get at least one road-worthy eventually.
  5. By golly, I still have these brochures! They're in good used condition with some wear. I'm sure that someone out there can give them a home at the ridiculously low price of $14.00 postpaid in the USA. Add $1.00 to cover the PayPal fee. Remember, you're getting the 1980 and 1981 Saab 9000 sales catalogs, PLUS the '...what is a Saab' brochure, for one low price! You can't go wrong! My apologies for the above ad...I've been watching too many infomercials on TV....

  7. My daughter lives in the 'Uptown' section of Chicago and was surprised to find out that 'Fargo' was using her area to shoot scenes depicting Kansa City in the early 1950's. There were a number of late-forties to early-fifties cars on location. Do any of them belong to forum members here?
  8. Nice NOS grille piece for your early-'50's Dodge. $85.00 + shipping from Freehold, NJ 07728

  10. How about $12.00 postpaid in USA?
  11. Paul, Check your Private Messages!
  12. Sorry if this is OT, but I've been into '52 Plymouths since I was a little kid (seriously!) and have never seen amber turn signal lenses for one. Do you recall the manufacturer's name?
  13. That's a neat item for sure. It's a long shot, but does Mid South Products Sales still exist and if so maybe they can provide some background info.
  14. UPDATE: My wife and I flew to Seattle for a long weekend, and looked at some communities south of the city (Lacey and Lakewood). Our son now tells us that he may move north of Seattle...he doesn't know yet and his timeline for buying a house is about 3 years. We don't want to be very far from him and if we move south and he moves north it defeats the purpose of being there. At this point, our plan is to downsize locally and wait a few years to see what happens. Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and suggestions.
  15. Thanks to everyone for their replies. For background, both my wife and I are former New Yorkers that have been living in New Jersey for the last 20+ years. I lived in Western New York (Rochester/Buffalo area) during my college years. Our son lives in the Capital Hill section of Seattle and is planning to move to somewhere outside the city in a few years. We want to move to a suburban environment with easy access to shopping and medical care. We're in our mid-60's and are managing OK health-wise, but that can change. I have 2 old Plymouths (a '51 and '52) that need work to be drivable and roadworthy. My son wants the '52 'when the time comes' and he likes the '51 as well, so both cars will be coming with us when we move. We'd like a ranch-style house so we won't have to deal with stairs. We considered looking in 'active adult' communities but are now leaning towards a mainstream neighborhood. Spending $2,500.00 to $3,000.00 yearly for association fees doesn't make sense for us. We're used to snow (and won't miss it!) so the winters in the Seattle area shouldn't be a problem. We'll deal with traffic...it's everywhere. I'm concerned about the clouds and rain, so if there is such a thing as a 'less rainy' suburban area on the west side of the mountains that would be a plus. I like to attend car-related activities (no surprise) and would be interested in joining a club if there's one where we end up. That's where we are at this point. Thanks again and keep the ideas coming! Harold
  16. We're getting ready to retire and are looking at Washington State because our son lives in Seattle. Seattle itself is too pricey for us so the goal is to be under 2 hours driving time from him. Lacey and Olympia look promising, but we're open to other areas as well. Any suggestions (including places to keep away from) appreciated. Thanks!
  17. Nice used condition. No rust. $15.00 picked-up in or near Freehold, NJ 07728. if you need it shipped, let me know your zip code and I'll figure out the cost.
