This week starts the Covered Bridge sale here in Indiana. Its a well known LARGE sale covering 4 counties. Dad and I worked on getting the 56 Belair 4Door Hardtop on the ground and rolling so we could sit it out front to sell.I listed it for $6,500 and had a low number of $4,000 in mind to be my lowest. It set out front for less then 12 hours and sold it for $5,000 Cried when it left but was also in best interest, Now I have room and a few $$$ to put to the 57 to finish it up. Ialso have some new parts I will be listing here.

It's always sad to see a classic leave, but on a good note, I assume you and your dad are once again speaking and doing some things together. It's a start.

Dad and I are better then ever. All said and done, Even though alot of meaness was said and done, but its all the past. He has his own Apartment but here almost everyday. We don't get to work together much the way my work schedule is, But when we are together we still make great times.

Glad to hear you got more for it than expected.:tu

As for the parts you're selling;does that tell us
that a $65.00 part is actually one that you're hoping
to get at least $40.00 for?:sign0020:

Hard decisions are a part of life. Your statement "But when we are together we still make great times". That with family trumps everything else. Wise choice. :anim_25::bowtier:

Hey, so, what exactly is a covered Bridge Sale?... is that like "you have a bridge you 'd like to sell.....?:sign0020:

I used to live in southern Indiana, but never heard of the bridge sale.

Gil

Sorry to hear about the 56,.... but does open up other avenues for other things.

Covered Bridge is mostly Park County. Park County is well known for all the Coverd Bridges. The sale runs for 14 days, Anywhere and everywhere, Nothing is unsaleable, Frold old to new, Always tons of items, High Prices and Good Food. People sell off space in the yards, 10x10 for 2 weeks bring an easy $250
