Sounds like you caught Bill on a good day. I have dealt with him for 30 years and there are days he wont give you the time of day. Back in the day a lot of that stuff was right in the shop. If you need original parts he has them, might take a while for him to get them for you (Weeks) but he has sure has the stuff. He is one of the few that has gone overseas and brought stuff back here. Definitly worth paying to go in and see the collection. The amount of small stuff, antique collectable stuff he has in there is incredible. One of a kind stuff.

Dude is that just one place or multiple places? Is that one shop or multiple shops in one. I have never seen a place like that! That would be killer to check out.
