If you are on the lookout for a great bargain when it comes to classic cars you may have a number of channels in mind that you can go to and find some attractive offers, but if you are interested in more than one L&L Classic Auto could be the ideal place to check out.
When we say more than one we are talking about thousands of hard-to-find vintage motors, in fact over 8,000 is an estimated amount as The Wendell salvage yard in Idaho is selling its stock of thousands of cars. In an informative article on FoxNews they highlight reports that the 79-year-old owner is planning retirement after over a half-century in the business.
In addition, the owner is also offering the 80 acres of land they reside on for free, or vice versa we are not totally sure. Either way owner Larry Harms says he “will miss this place, but not the stress of running it,” although we understand he will be keeping a few favourites for himself.
L&L started off being run by Harms who were fiercely loyal to vintage cars and starting out as a body shop in a smaller location near town, but as the assortment started expanding they had to move to a more accommodating location.
On the land enthusiasts will find everything from derelict cars and classics in running condition to obtainable car parts and various motors of all sizes and shapes, of which some are near enough 100 years old. With an estimated 8,000 to 10,000 vehicles all residing on this land there are so many to account for that staff have been unable to catalogue all of them.
Their website keeps track of the available parts for sale and as much as Harm is looking forward to retiring he is in no rush to get rid of his massive fleet of cars. With this in mind, we get the impression he wants someone to come in and continue their work with historic vehicles, as opposed to someone disposing of the vehicles just to keep the land.
So if you are prepared to carry on Larry Harms’ work this could be the ideal opportunity to continue with this business and make the most of the $3 million sale price, but Harms remains adamant that the new owner should be a serious buyer.
