Tell me when you're available. I'd love to make a road trip down there from Maryland.

Got any wagon interiors?

WNC123 09-09-2011 09:12 PM

wow John,
that sucks. i can *maybe* come out on Sunday the 18th to help move stuff, grab some parts (i could use a few oddball things for my 85 wagon), etc. keep me/us posted and i'll see what i can do.

benhogan 09-10-2011 12:03 AM

I'm in.

Why don't we make it a giant PP event somehow? It would be great to meet the gang.

Maybe some people might even come in their diesel motor coach/airport shuttle

Are you allowed an ISO container?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Containerization

If so strip and stack...

No ISO container allowed?

Garden sheds - lots of them and then

Strip and stack...

compress ignite 09-10-2011 07:20 AM

'Should be allowed as many Mercedes as you can afford.

Junkman 09-10-2011 08:44 AM

Want to move them to TN? I'd let you store them out in the back. NO ONE would see them (unless they did a fly over).

vstech 09-10-2011 09:29 AM

I have an "appointment" scheduled for this thursday to meet with an inspector...
I may be able to reschedule it...
I got a letter from the city stating that they recieved a complaint concerning "motor vehicles and debris"
the meeting is to verify the complaint... over 45 vehicles... I think it'll verify...

I DO have an 87TD that will need to go!

and an 84 240D 5SPEED with red cloth interior! (and a broken camshaft...)

an 84 300D turbo diesel with a 4 speed attached to the engine, but no shifter, pedals or driveshaft...

also, several parts cars, 123/126... 2 123 wagons... both non running.

a pair of chevy 6.2 trucks...

vstech 09-10-2011 09:40 AM

I am available EVERY DAY FROM NOW UNTIL THEY ARE ALL GONE!

am, pm, weekends, any time.

I want them all properly in the hands of benz lovers before I'm forced to have junk dealers hauling...

help stripping and storing parts for future sale/supply would be fantastic.

bluetypewriter 09-10-2011 10:22 AM

Ugh, I'm only 3 hours away but all my weekends are full this month due to my upcoming nuptials. Good luck!

TheDon 09-10-2011 12:14 PM

I wish I was closer so I could help you strip those cars! Do you have a list of what you have in your inventory?
