vstech ---- why the bump? Did you get rid of another car or did you acquire 3 more?

Inquiring minds want to know.

I bumped to see the view count. I do still need to get rid of a few cars, the 85 euro wagon that's mostly stripped still has a lot in it, the 84 300D with a manual partially installed needs to go, as does the 85 300D, which needs the engine/tranny reinstalled.

why didn't you just build a tall privacy fence and tell the city, it's none of your business if they can't see it?

Your '78 300d

I have a local kid here in Athens, GA who is driving a 1977 300d rust bucket but with a pretty good engine and a lot of salvageable parts. How is the rust on your 300d? Think we could put his engine and rotors on it and be in pretty good shape?

Thanks!!

Been waiting since last Fall for parts. Apparently very busy, so my take is that most of this stuff is now not being sold, either has been scrapped or in safe storage, hopefully the latter.

John, so dealing with loss; bummer. Sorry to see this.

So then, why no reply back to my P.M. at least two months ago? Or are you just getting parts to locals?
