I had an old friend who was an independent businessman like myself and who owned a bone yard and garage. He was one of the most knowledable men I ever knew when it came to a Cheverolet.

He died of cancer about two months or so ago at the age of around 60 years old.

He left two young boys of about 20 to 25 years old who are plodding along in their daddy's footsteps with the property and business that he left behind.

He collected 57 Chevrolets and at one time had about 50 in his pasture etc. I think the boys told me that there are now between 20 and 30 left. They are in all stages of disrepair and I don't think any of them are runable and some are in pretty bad shape from just sitting out in the weather.

Anyway these boys could use a little money to help pay for their daddy's medical expenses and funeral expenses. If any of you knows of someone who might be interested in these old cars have them get in touch with me if they would like to inspect them and maybe make an offer for them all.
I have no financial interest in them or any deal that may be struck

Zane, I have been in the market for a 57 Chevy for the longest time. If the price/condition is right, I would love to have one. Where are they located? ---Rob

PS. BTW, thanks for all your help in the past!

I would highly recommend doing some research on the value of the cars/parts if time permits. I am not familiar enough with 57's to make a comment on value, but do know they are probably worth a considerable amount of $$. I would suggest picking up some old car publications, especially a publication called Old Cars Value Guide which lists out values based on condition. Once you have the values determined I would advertise the cars in a nationwide publication or on the Internet. I have sold 2 old cars this way and received a LOT more for them than I would have trying to sell locally. I live in MO and sold one to a person in New Orleans and another to near Los Angeles CA. The first was picked up by the buyer, and I shipped the second car via an auto transporter. I realize this may seem like a lot of time to invest, but I believe it would pay off by getting the boys what the cars are worth. 57's are highly sought after among some and these folks are willing to pay to get a good original restorable car or parts car. Another solution would be an auction (advertised heavily over a wide area if not nationwide). I saw this recently where a gentleman passed on and it drew collectors from quite a distance to bid on his cars. Just some thoughts.

Zane, very sorry to hear about your friends passing, I will be 60 on my next birthday , health is still ok, I have taken steps to provide for my wife if I kick the bucket, Mabey we should all stop and think about it, it costs me a few more dollars a month but gives a lot of piece of mind . Every thing I have is paid for, most of my health insurance is paid by my former employer when I retired in 97 .
