      Don’t hold onto them too long. If you die (it’s inevitable), your family will throw it all in a dumpster. Happened with my dad. Happened with his mom.

              That's nothing... There is was a guy here in CO with a couple WALLS 10+ feet high of tubs of carbs, I think he may have died as I saw his stuff put up for sale on craigs list recently.

              Pm if you want his contact info. Don't know what if anything is available

              I was talking to him a month or so ago. He is a friend of mine and is very much alive. Just thinning out some of his parts.

              What are you paying for cores? I have a bunch of thermoquads, one or two avs, and a few holleys.

                The point is that many are going to FI as the units are getting cheaper which has produced lots of cheap cores. I am old school and will
                Always have a carb on my hot rod. I WANT to fiddle and tune it, FI guys don’t want to fiddle. I know that in term of mileage , efficiency, etc FI is the way to go, but I love the sound of a thermoquad at WOT

                  He wants to get them all for ultra cheap or free and charge a king's ransom for them.
