  • New nest for studebakers

    I am moving all my Studebaker, cars and stuff into my new shop, serious question, how many core, rusty fenders, heavy parts does a guy keep, example, rusty hawk fender, good apron, keep or pitch? I have free stuff posted on addicts page now

    What ever you throw away, you will need within a year. Maybe sort the stuff and stack it neatly where you can find it quickly.

      I see two reasonable choices; 1) don't keep any of it or 2) keep the best example of each item. My experience is that what I kept I did not need. If you keep none of it, just shop for what you need if that situation arises.

        It's all good stuff until you have to move, then it becomes________ fill in the blank.

        Honestly there are plenty of good parts out there. Saving junk is a fools errand. Ask yourself if the part is something you would use on your own car? If the answer is no, it's probably not going to be any use to anyone else. There are fewer and fewer cars every day, and less and less people doing work on their cars, and fewer still, doing restoration work. Get rid of it now or someone else will have to in the future. Do as I say not as I do!
