Is there anyone in this area that can look into this further? I would hate for these (or some) to go to the crusher!

Wow, I did not realize Dave had that many cars not to mention all the sedan deliveries.  I knew he had 2-3 but not all of those.  Impressive.  Sad that he passed.

Did you see the Mustang II's. The hours I spent on the phone with Dave
he never mentioned those. I knew he loved sedan/delivery's but I didn't
realize he had the market cornered.

I also see where all the Mustang II hood scopes went LOL

He had a good collection!

Ended up not driving down there.
Never did find out if there are any 71 - 73 cars I could use for parts or fix up & drive.

Looking at what pictures are available, didn't see any.
Asked for some kind of inventory & got nothing.

Wasn't about to spend the time/money on a maybe.

There's a Pangra there from what I understand. That would be a cool one! But 12 to 14 hours away is a tad much!

They're gone. from what i know they sent most away to the crusher. I managed to save the truck. but I guess Daves sister didnt want to hang on to everything for any longer. she mentioned hanging on to a bunch of it until the end of the month, but when we called back a week later to try to save more, they said it was all gone. Ive already seen 4 wagons show up in calgary pick n pull Barlow.

I know that there where over 60 cars on the property, and its a lot to take care of, but it kills me to see cars that could have been saved sent to the crusher. I dont know about down in the u.s. but up here they stack the cars they've taken in the outer parking lot until they can process them. once theyre "processed" even if they could be sold as builders, they get moved around with a forklift, bending everything right down to the frames. all those wagons that showed up? never even made it to the yard with the emblems or anything good. stripped behind the fence by the snipes that work there for every good/ rare part that could be used. mag wheels, shifter knobs, everything. i hate that place, and if it werent for them having weird stuff from time to time, id have quit going a long time ago.

Very sad, but having been through the horrendous task of settling an estate a couple of times, I can understand.  What a loss!

If I had a place to put them, I could have driven the 12 to 14 hours. But it wasn't that simple bringing them to the US as I understood also...
