someone needs to go check that place out. I'm sure there are a lot of things there that someone could buy cheap and then turn around and sell here on the forum... someone should check it out. I'd be willing to buy from a forum member. not sure what i need, but if there was some cool parts... someone should look and report back.

I'll let you know!

I'm driving up to the Seattle area, leaving tomorrow (Thursday). This place is on my way so I'll stop and see what it's all about. I should be able to post a report Friday night from the motel.

I just got back from there. Like Rob said (nice guy!) in his ad there is just a huge collection of parts. Probably over 100 engines and trans that I saw. I didn't take any pictures but just know that he is likely to have what you need but it doesn't appear he really keep an inventory. If you call him he might know but best to be able to positively identify the parts for yourself.

He didn't have any Unimog stuff that I need or cars that weren't too big of a project for me to start but if you need any hard to find stuff it will be worth your while. Lots of body panels etc too. There is even a 300 Adenaur (s.p.?) Limo hulk down there. Ponton stuff... and I counted five 240D manual trans. for which he wants $100.

Light Ivory front fender

If someone finds a light ivory '79ish w123 left fender down there for dirt cheap in good condition and doesn't mind bringing it up to canada... hehehe...

Man I'd have a hay day down there.

Actually if there's a mercedes spare tank (the extra tank installed behond the stock w123 tank) let me know and I can arrange a pickup down near seattle.

Unfortunately, in-laws are coming to town, and I won't be able to make it there until Saturday at best. I would be happy to donate time and some space to people who want stuff, though. Someone make a goodies list.
