50 - 80 years ago the folks who purchased nonrunning vehicles/machines and stored them now have have quite a bit of money in parts on hand.

Previous home town, in the 1920 and 30's a guy started picking up/purchasing nonrunning items and storing them. He had a 1 acre stable, two levels, that is/was filled with old vehicles and auto parts. Also a farm with 20 or 30 acres of vehicles.

Last time I talks with the guy's grandson, the grandson was getting a 1939 plymouth pickup ready to advertise in Hemmings.

1970's, General Motors Training Center. We were talking about some of the crappy cars on the market. Instructor said that some day they would be worth moeny. They are kids first cars.

I use to buy and drive the old 1949 and later flat head Fords. $100, drive them for several years until the motor went, buy another one for $100-.

Even rusty in the fields they have a style that vehicles of today don't. When I look at older cars I see faces on the front of every vehicle. They have a beauty all there own. I don't see any beauty or faces in vehicles today.
