WHAT'S NEW JANUARY 2021
The magic barn produced this old Coke Cooler. Nice shape - no rust - no guts.
It would make a great addition to someone's man cave. Install new cooling system, use for storage or turn it into a couch. We also brought back a bunch of 49 Chevrolet truck parts and picked up some leftovers from a 68-69 Cutlass restoration.
What's New December 2020
Lately the work bay has been over run and little progress has been made on the projects. Over run with engines. The "barn" contributed 3 engines to my space as well as having come across a really sweet 283 and an old Buick straight 8 and a 305.
Here are some pictures
Las Vegas - last year - SEMA was virtual this year but new product announcements were plentiful and 2021 looks like a great year for the Restoration / Aftermarket industry .
Call or email and we will search again to see if stuff we couldn't find before is now available.
,We have discovered the much dreamt about barn that keeps us supplied in barn fresh project cars. Last weekend we dragged home this former California El Camino project.
We still haven't had time to wash her or do a full inventory of what is here and what is missing but there are " good bones". If you want more info on the mysterious, barn contact us and get advanced notice - there are still 10 or so cars to go before the property sells.
I was coming back from loading a door in the back of a semi truck parked at the road and as I walked back I noticed my yard. Life is good. I live in a time warp where some days there is nothing newer than 1969 in the shop or driveway. It made me smile. sometimes life is too busy and we miss out on the simple stuff.
TAKE TIME TO SMILE.
It seems to take forever for stuff to happen once you get the ball rolling. We started talking with "Uncle Bill" at Vavavoom Garage early in June about some parts for a customer and it worked into ordering a couple of Solid Western Trucks. Organizing the shipping, all the online back and forth and phone calls and finally the first 2 trucks arrived July 19th. The blue small back window 67 GMC and the red V8 / auto 69 GMC are here.
Shipping is extremely expensive for big awkward stuff so we had Uncle Bill load the back of the 67 with parts for another one of his customers. When delivering those parts we came across the 1955 Chevrolet Cameo and the 1958 GMC Fleetside and brought them home on Saturday just in time to pose for the picture in the newsletter. I would love to bring more vehicles from the west but that would mean putting everything in motion now to beat the weather - it can snow out west in September or October.
1969 GMC long box - V8 auto. 1967 GMC small back window - 6 cylinder 3 on the tree on the floor now.
1955 Chevrolet Cameo - complete . 1958 GMC Fleetside no engine or transmission - yet.
I would love to build all these trucks but maybe we can manage one - they are all for sale - call Dave for more info 519 326-9566
We worked hard at our virtual automotive swap meet site and store and have another video on youtube.
We are hoping to have something new on the yard for August.
Check out the youtube video and the store.
We are still shipping parts and have even made a few delivery runs to replace the swap meets we all miss.
Call if you need anything,
I miss swap meets - everything except the getting up at 3:30 and driving 3 hours but I miss the people, the sounds and smells , the inspiration and excitement.
We have tried to capture some of the sights of the swap meet on our Virtual Automotive Swap Meet.
Check out the video on YOUTUBE and we have added a store so you can buy what you see.
We will be adding more tables and tarps to the swap meet as we get time so check in every once in a while.
You can still call us and we will ship parts that you don't see on the store pages.

Okay before the phone rings off the hook - look at the second picture.
1/64 scale Die Cast 1967 Acadian SD
