Rain has been a welcome occurrence in dry Southern California but it makes working in the garage a little cool this time of year. Driving the roadster is prohibitive due to dangerous mud slides and pot holes. It has been a long time since we have had this much rain in our town.
During the storms I spent my time gathering all of my parts to list on the HAMB. I have made the decision I will not attempt to build any more cars from the ground up and therefore, have no need for the parts in storage. The years of collecting parts for future projects are over. Working on the ground is difficult for me and I just don’t do it any more. Donnie helps me when I need something major done and it works out for both of us.
I found the market for my old Ford parts is on the HAMB or Ford Barn. Selling seems to be easy on these wonderful sites. Shipping is the tough part as shipping rates seem to be sky high for odd shaped parts. I have a local UPS Store who provides me with some estimates so I can quote the customer. Sometimes shipping is more than the part cost. Foreign shipments are the most expensive but buyers seem to pay the tariff as they can’t find the part in their country.
I love the selling game and provide honest descriptions and reasonable prices. I also provide photos for inspection and guaranteed satisfaction or money back policy. The For Sale section will now include parts as well as cars. Please note the new rules for listing a car.
See you next week at the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona!
