Home Built

Things are moving along at this estate sale, although I am getting tired of the dead animals! I found two more opossums and another rat today. Its just getting GROSS! Anyway we have this bitchen home built dune buggy for sale. Built before the fiberglass generation from a shortened pan of a beetle. Nice front suspension and tranny! LIVE THE DREAM $350.00

There's a good $500.00 bucks or so of VW parts here not to mention the awsomeness of the home built factor. This thing rules and should be put back in the sand!

Swap Meet Haul

I took a few days off from working my estate sale to get some fresh air and walk the swap meets. This is just part of the week end finds.

Skeletons in the Closet

Well, not in the closet, but just about everywhere else. I am still working on this estate sale and the dead bodies are piling up. To date I have found what I believe to be 2 rats, one frog and one opossum. Its really kinda gross to have to deal with this.

Need a little help...

I am still working on this estate sale and have been finding some neat stuff. I am trying to figure out what this is. Does anybody want to take a guess. It seems very automotive to me but I just can't figure it out. Who used the omega symbol? It is made of cast aluminum, measures almost 6" in width, has a duel lead socket with a single filament MAZDA bulb rated 12-16 volts. It almost looks like a license plate light but I think that it was used on the interior because of the finish. Can anybody I.D. this thing and put me out of my misery!

O.K. so were are still working hard to sort this crazy garage at our latest estate sale. Early in the afternoon I pulled a box down from a high shelf and start to go through it. The next thing I know I have a real WWII hand grenade in my hands. I have seen enough of these things to know the novelty variety and this was not one of them. I carefully put it down and stand in...military markings...NO signs of it being tampered with...SHIT! What do I do?! My wife splits and leaves me to die. I call the O.C. Sheriff. They come out and take a look from five feet away and the dude says, "it looks like a grenade to me. I'm calling the bomb squad". SHIT! The bomb squad shows up and goes in. 10 minutes later he walks out with it in pieces. The grenade had been disarmed years ago but there was no clear indication that it had. He told me that upon first inspection he was concerned. He told me that, "through a series of "tests" he felt fairly certain that it was safe" and then picked it up and really checked it out. STUD! The guy was cool as hell and has a job that nobody wants.

We're shooting for a sale date at the beginning of Feb. I'll let you when and where when the time is right. Until then, enjoy a few teaser shots of whats gonna be there.
