Speaking of parts laying around, my father was an auto mechanic. He had his own shop and did a lot of work on antiques. One day he asked me to help him pick up some old parts at a salvage yard where he knew the owner well. The salvage yard had a building that stored rebuilt parts and he was going to scrap all the old stuff, so he was giving my father in law anything he wanted. This was in the early 70's. We filled the back of his pickup truck with rebuilt fuel pumps, alternators and carburetors and could have made two more trips if he wanted to. There was a pile of stuff from the 50's. I have no idea what ever happened to it all.
