I watched the video and checked out the location on Google Earth. 
Lampasas, TX is SSW of Dallas and NW of Houston. 

It's a sad but amazing video. 99% of that stuff is going to end up in the 
crusher, and that's probably appropriate for more than 90% of it. Hidden in 
that last 9% are treasures that no one managed, or cared, to find. I showed a 
bit of the video to my wife, hoping it would make her feel better about our 
basement, but that didn't help.  

The part I didn't understand was that the late owner wouldn't sell anything 
while he was alive. Makes no sense to me. I have a few things that I'm 
keeping for future needs, but most of what I have is available to help keep 
someone elses Type 3 happily running. 

If there's something you need, don't hesitate to ask. I'll turn 75 this spring, so 
I know my days doing this work are numbered. I just don't know how large 
that number is.

Anyway, Happy New Year everyone!
