    Wow! I can honestly say that I have never seen anyone's yard (yes,
    this is their yard) with a more eclectic collection of stuff. Just
    for starters she had everything from military equipment, 100+ antique
    farm implements, a Sicorsky helicopter, a missle, a pile of probably
    150 Jap bikes, a flatbed with 25 or so Cushmans to about 50+
    airplanes in various states of disrepair to easilly over 300 cars.
    There were even old bombs leaning up against the shed! They gave me a
    vintage Coke machine in the deal too.

    Once I get the Amphi (1962) home I will be disassembling her. No
    drive train and most of the interior parts are gone. The engine
    cover, one door and hood are nothing short of perfect! The passenger
    side is squished. Take a look at the pics in the file section.

  2. I really enjoyed the photos you put in the files, I was hoping to
    find the Cushmans and the Coke machine to see what they looked like.
    Looks like the Amphi may have some good parts as well. If you have
    any more shots, please post them.

    The Coke machine is a Cavalier (I think), 1973 vintage. 10oz bottles
    through a door on the left. The last price was 35 cents ! It is
    similar to http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?

    0&rd=1 (eBay item #1119440664)

    Next time I go out there, I'll get some pics of the Cushmans for ya.

    They had a huge fire a year ago, there were 150 Harleys in the hangar
    when it went up. OUCH! That hurt.
