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...

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).

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...

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.

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?
