    The other side of the "hoarder". If no one had picked up the stuff years ago and put it away it would have been recycled and gone. In 1976 I dug a 63 QB long block out of an iron pile the owner was going to scrap. Another 340hp engine was already in the scrap yard. Bought one 409 truck engine at...

    Some hoarder already bought these.

    333 heads questions, again.

    Propane use will cause valve seat wear also.

    PVS could do it. He has the engine. A local shop with a good dyno, and some of the intakes. Other forum members could come up with the rest.

    Paper oil cans

    With the spout there was always some oil left in the can. I remember in one station they had a rack for the cans to drain completely and would sell that oil to customers that wanted cheap oil for their car.

    64superstocker, is this the intake that showed up on Facebook last week? If someone's not in a hurry you can price something high and then drop if it doesn't sell. I had to give that money for an AMC crossram. It's nice, looks like it had a couple of bolts in it for display but not run.

    I have some Trop-arctic paper quarts. Some still full, some have leaked. They are on a shelf in an old garage and oil has soaked through the siding. I don't think paint is going to stick there anymore.

    L&L Classic Auto - One of the largest Classic Salvage Yards in the U.S.

    208 ft 9 inches lenght per side. Could get about 50 units with walking room around them on an acre.

    L&L Classic Auto - One of the largest Classic Salvage Yards in the U.S.

    That is $26250 per acre. That would have to be in a developed area with demand for more development to be worth that. An acre is a little more than 200 ft square. Is there $20000 plus a profit of salvage in each acre?
