Is (Was) a big story about the Kanters deciding what to do with warehouses full of good used and NOS parts now that they are consolidating.  It takes the restoration hobby to create parts demand. 

 

 

 

Imperial, what is the story on Kanters?

It happens all the time though.  I buy and sell NOS parts,  though I have been getting a lot pickier about what I buy and you just get inundated with the crap that you buy to get a little bit of cream.  Most of this stuff is never stored well and often has flash rust or what not,  so it all needs to be cleaned.  Much needs to be identified as well.  That takes an incredible amount of time even with good resources and a parts book collection that has taken 10 years to amass and would be the envy of many.  I sold my shop a year and a half ago and emptied that and a tractor trailer body as well as a storage unit all at once.  I made huge piles and sold them.  Probably at or below scrap value to a guy doing just the same thing I did,  but he was just starting.  I made him a great deal ands made sure he got some cream.  He hauled 3 truck loads away. 

  Just this week I started pulling all the NOS parts I had identified cleaned and ran through eBay that never sold off my shelves.  I filled several boxes and gave it to my wife.  I said just wholesale it off and keep the money.  I don't care what you get for it.  I want it gone. 

I also have 2 storage units full of parts and the attic of a friends garage I never finished emptying out.  I'm going t out it all in the units and get rid of those as well.  I'll probably do an eBay auction and start the whole thing for 100 no reserve.  Hopefully someone atlas takes it for that.  If they bid more good.  Of course I have been paying the fee of 100 a month for a year now and probably haven't sold even a years worth of rent out of them.  Sometimes you just have to cut your losses,  bite the bullet and don't look back.

The ad above now shows listing was ended by seller because item was lost or broken....  since we knew it was broken, how the hell did he lose it?
