    All the cars were sold on another site after my son smashed the Duster. I Bought to many Dusters and Darts and had no room to mix the parts it was just to many different parts . And the money I got for them was very good. I could not believe what the air grabbers were worth. Cash is good. LOL. I think they went to Wisconson. They came with three trucks with enclosed trailers and we still had to stuff the cars. I miss the Idea and still want one . But I'll have to wait.

    I will get one done if I find an orange air grabber car. A 6BBL or Hemi would be nice even if its a hellaphant. The money would be the issue. They are going for around 50 to 100 K. I am thinking of selling some Harleys and some rare parts I have. There is a standard bore Mega block here and some other pretty hard to get parts . I need to clean this mess up. and list them on E-bay. I will no longer sell parts on this site. To many Ass holes on here. Not all but more than I want to deal with at this time. Some will buy parts cheap just to leave a Neg. feed back. I was warned buy members.

    I will get some spots at Carlisle next year to sell small parts , Also Large parts that cannot be shipped easy with phone call requests. Cash and carry. There are members that want nice fenders and doors I just found some in the one trailer But I will not ship heavy or large parts. I don't trust the Carriers and I have lost many parts shipping them. Not only with damage . Some thieves too. I also need to keep room for the golf carts so we can use them out there. I haven't been there for a while. I had fun out there this year. Just meeting old freinds. Some got so old I didn't recognize them. Me I still look 21. LOL.

    A hellcat would also be nice or a new Coyote Mustang repairables the parts are out there. Debating on one of the three. I believe the 71 RR takes priority at this time . But it must be real nice and Orange. After the Demon is done I should have the cash with the sale of Harley's

    I remember when I was going to sell everything I had here fo 10K when I was really sick. The a-body buyer stood me up. Eventually I forgave and sold him some items. What a loss for him I made more than double on less than half. I was selling parts on this site cheap because of the mess that was created getting all the parts down for that member that lied and stood me up. But since some Ass holes ruined it for all.

      You have not seen 1/4 of this mess even if you were here. I have parts next door and stashed everywhere. I have been giving away all parts not 71 related to friends that come here. I still can't find what I need when I need it. And I know several are here.

      I cannot tell you how long I searched for parts for the brown 71. Dave 69383valiant like yesterday walks in and finds things the first place he goes to. I am so used to parts not being in the obvious places. Like where they should be, Right where I put them. I may look 21 but my mind is 64. And its starting to show.

      With the help Dave from . I found all mechanical the parts I needed now. soon we need to dig out the cosmetics after paint. We found a nice out side door handle in a box of seat belts the other day. That will be put in the door handle drawer.

      When Todd looks he gets one out for me and two for him. Friday we caught him on camera trying to walk off with a wrench but I walked in. He said he thought it was his. He knew it wasn't . My son has ring cameras hooked up to his phone when ever he sees toodd walk in he watches him like a hawk from work. He calls me and tells me when Todd is up to no good. Todd has worked for me since the early 80's. He was 13 yrs old so he is like my second son. I helped him buy the house next door. So I can just go take things back I have access to the keys from his son. He has a drinking problem. When he is sober he is a different person. I love him but we have to baby sit him. I give him all the 67-69 barracuda parts. Here he is , The tools he is using I will have to go get them back. He puts them in boxes of parts I give him. The he can say he accidentally put them there. We all know Todds tricks. But he don't know he is on Camera.

        That door with the stove pipe coming out was the old door. We put a new door in the front of the garage when the back was fenced in. When we add on to the side it will be removed and the furnace will be put into the addition the door will then be the accsess to that part of the garage. Being it was a steel door it was an easy way to put the pipe in without going through the roof. Here is the door inside . When we move the furnace ,There will be no evidence of it being there and no hole to close up just throw the door away.

          It's a shame about that clean surviver 72 new Yorker you chopped up along with that 71 charger R/T to build that road runner, and then you never built what you wanted anyways. Total waste of 2 decent old MoPars.

            What's the point of showing a lifetime stash of parts, that you dont intend to sell on this site? It is a "look at me type thing? Just curious

              back from you. I'm not a A***hole. Still Nice collection. But, I agree why keep showing it???

              Well your curiosity just finished the pictures of the other parts trailers and threads. This was no hype just some pictures to see of what my day encountered

              . I give a lot away for free. And was doing it on this site. Until Ass holes like you make comments like this.

              I didn't post these pics to sell anything or they would remove the thread. I just showed what I have to deal with everyday when I need to look for parts for the brown Duster and others in past want ads I would answer. That is why it is taking longer then usual. I post many pictures for reference for members to use when looking for parts. Such as the gas cap pictures and many others for reference. If you all don't like pictures I won't post any more. These pictures are not even close to what is stashed here and other places.

              Look for your shit in the blind. Some members just like looking at pictures . As soon as I get someone like you responding. The pictures on the thread stop. As the thread I was posting pictures of my old cars of my past.

              Pictres of cars and things of my past of my past

              I haven't posted any more and that wasn't even 1/4 of them. there are many more threads I stopped posting pictures there because of a person like you.
              But some just can't just enjoy the pictures . You won't see any more pictures on this thread so you can troll on now. And you will never get anything from me. I love you too. But I have a list , Yeah, I am on it too. Guys like you are one of the reasons that I won't sell here for now. But mostly A mod and his good buddy "Yellow fish with no teeth just gums" and that California Idiot Mosespower the guy that can split the red sea but has more questions then a 2 year old on his threads.

              Doesn't take much to turn my crank lately. I am getting old and tired. I have an old flip phone. Its so old it has a dial on it instead of buttons . So taking and posting pictures isn't easy for dumb stupid old guy like me. Do you actually think I am proud of this junk pile and the trailers and sheds my wife and I want out of here.This place looks like a shit hole.

              I went out to take picture for the guy that needed the plastic parts to show him the different lengths. And I am sure that picture will be used several times by other members as the many others I have posted. Now that I know the pictures offend you this thread is done LOL have a nice day

                  I like it. Actually I think the whole idea of "FABO" and any other forum of this type is, "look what I have". That is why we show our cars and our latest scores.

                  Threads like this are extremely cool in my opinion, but hey, everybody has their own.............

                    If i had a collection like this i would be lost and frustrated too.
                    Just trying to sell stuff locally is a pain in the ass. Between stupid questions,lowball offers and no shows it gets old real quick.
                    I would like nothing more than to have a yard full of parts,and being able to build my stuff and sell off the extras to support the hobby.
                    I really dont care for people that capitalize on someone’s good will.
                    And i get where op is coming from,perhaps he takes offensive remarks personally.

                    Here is a man with knowledge,yet some are relentless in doing their best to drive him out.

                    I know of a mopar guy that has an extensive collection of cars and parts and does immaculate restorations. He’s biased and somewhat arrogant, but i see past that and see a man that is passionate about what he does.

                    Steve, keep on doing what you do. Legends arent born in a day...

                      I agree. I like to see collections too. I'm a paying customer though, when I have the dough to spare. To each his own. Nobody has to sell anything they don't want, but to seemingly clump everyone together as assholes is a bit over the top. There are many, many other places and people to buy things from.

                        I can relate to the frustration experienced when people pull a no-show, or low ball like you must be desperate for the sale, nothing pisses me off more than somebody trying to dazzle me with bullshit, and then making a ridiculous offer on something I have for sale. Just wanna bitch-slap those asshats.
                        I am new to this site, but have been involved in all things automotive for over 45 years. I appreciate the time and effort that you have invested in amassing the collection you have, and agree that it is up to you what and where you sell your parts. It is unfortunate that there are people who ruin circumstance for others by their own ignorance or greed.

                        Thank you for sharing the images that you have of both your parts and the cars you have owned in the past, I enjoy seeing them.

                          I don't know about everyone else, but I was enjoying looking at all the pictures. I always like seeing other people's parts collection. You never know what you are going to see. I was even wondering if those 1970 Duster rocker panel molding clips that I have been looking for are in there somewhere. Now I will never know.

                          Update - I just realized this was 4 months old, but I still liked the pictures.
