One of the few local shops that still worked on A/C VW's shut down at the end of last year, and the contents of the business are being auctioned. Sad for me, since I had my first interaction with them last September after I got my first beetle in over 30 years.
Anyway, it's about 5 minutes from my house, so if anyone sees something they want, we might be able to make an arrangement for me to buy and ship. And of course anyone local enough to get to the auction, I hope you find something you need!

There could be some good stuff there, hard to say.

The pile of fenders looks useful to someone

If you are going, you should get the 4-lug drum puller:

I wonder if there an NOS case in that big VW box?
And what are those pistons?

If anyone cares, that Hobart 140 is a nice welder for doing auto body work. That's what I'm using and it's been great.

Yeah, the big VW box caught my eye as well. The welder I may pick up if it's cheap enough, but the area I live a lot of people fix old cars as well as farm equipment, so that may go for a good penny

The small parts areas/cases look interesting and also a good amount of early water cooled parts in there.

Hmmn.. looks good. I may take the drive and have a nice time. If nothing else, I can go run up the prices. Laughing I have that very same air compressor I inherited from Savich Auto many years ago.

The shop must be some jewel in the rough now...still has the wooden floor. Breaks me heart to see a shop calls it quits. I hope someone picks it up for some use.

I can only try to buy what I can fit in my little truck and small trailer. I will drop by on my way to Omaha.
