Default Mystery solved......

Well, this post solves a mystery that has had me stumped for the past several months. Back in the summer a whole lot (probably 40 to 50) of very diverse and extremely unusual vehicles appeared on the site of the old Norwalk Bargain Center on RT. 250 on the north side of Norwalk.

Then in the fall, a bunch more appeared on the old Wolohan Lumber lot in Avery, including about 8 Divcos. The day I spotted them, we didn't have a camera with us. Next time we went over that way we took the camera, but Certain-Teed Corp. (right next door) had jammed the front part of the lot full of shingles. We weren't able to any kind of photos due to heavy brush along the fence, and shingles blocking the rest of the view. I've planned on going over there when the shingles move out and before the brush grows in and get some photos.


Now I've got more information, I can do some detective work on this project. Those Divcos appear to be in fairly good shape. I'm real curious where the indoor storage photos were take....a visit to the local Fire Chief should get me that answer.

More information to follow when I get it.

I just had Barb look at the indoor photos and she says they are inside the old Norwalk Bargain Center, I can't argue with her..... looks like it.

Does that mean that these cars and trucks are going to be sold at bargain prices??

I have a feeling this will end up being one of the big stories for the PCS in 2017. Hopefully there won't be too big of a bidding war and someone who truly appreciates it will get a fair deal. I have a feeling bidding will go high enough to discourage any rat-rodders though.

I am not as concerned with the selling prices as I am with having them end up in the hands of someone who will properly restore and care for them. I am content with watching from afar!

Auctions like this one is what Yvette does best!! No one gets more money for project cars than she does! She is definitely the one to use in selling large collections like this!

I used to get her monthly/quarterly e-mails that went out to everyone on her mailing list. Her grammar/spelling/usage were atrocious! Someone must have finally told her to either stop doing it or have someone else do it for her.

Ed,
I have gotten to where I can understand everything that you write! It's kinda scary! Lol

There is a big difference in that Yvette's e-mails were used to promote her business. This (PCS) site is just social. Yvette is getting better at identifying the vehicles that she sells as to year/make/model. Early on, she often didn't hit it within 5 years. I think that some of her naivety worked in her favor with her buyers.
