  • What a mess (or possibly heaven?)

    I stumbled across this "opportunity", it appears that a junkyard in Vermont is being offered up for sale on e-bay. It is a shame that moisture has taken its toll on some of the parts despite being stored inside. Just to keep it Studebaker related, I did see a red R series truck in one of the 375 pictures!

    Here is the link:

    I do not know if the half dozen junkyard dogs are part of the deal or not.

    I think I spotted some Lark headlight doors in the third pic from the top.

    It's really hard to place a value on that stash. What's the value of the real estate, if it's included? Does the guy have an on-going business, with a verifiable cash flow. If I sank my 1.5 mil in this place, what sort of return on my investment could I expect? Not that I have 1.5 mil in my hip pocket, anyway; but the folks who do have that kind of coin are going to be prone to asking that sort of question.

    My gut feeling is that when buying a large stash like that, one should pay pennies on the dollar, simply because you are going to be going to the grave still owning a lot of it.

        No, the property isn't included. At least, not in the description. Still, he shows several pictures of the buildings. The seller's phone number is at the bottom.

        Lots of really neat stuff. Could you imagine inheriting something like this? Potential nightmare.

            He says the stuff has to be moved. Even if I HAD the asking price - can you IMAGINE the cost and logistics of trying to move and store all that stuff!!![xx(]

            BTW, I spotted the 58 Packard hardtop even before I saw mention of it in the write-up!

            No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                I missed the Packard, I was to stunned trying to figure out how someone would ever be able to tag the parts with what they are and what they possiably fit[8] that is a life time of him just collectiing and never selling a thing.
