Texas metal makes me drool.
Yea, Ive got to think what ill do with my little hoard, stuff Im never going
to use I really need to move along, haven’t had time to photo anything
And put it on the samba, and that probably wont happen for quite some time
yet.  Question is always, what to simply cull?  Like early rims
That have a lot of rust on them... probably worthless or old core cranks and
cylinders.  I still need to get rid of those Golf doors, hate to scrap rust
Doors but there seems little interest in Mk2's these days, at least in the

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!
