!(knucks and pans crushed for scrap"?>"!

over the past number of years CLEM the 90 year old man has been my secret parts guy out in california. honestly he had 30 knuck and 35 pan motors all baskets and the parts gallery to go to anything from the 1920s 1930s to late 60s no amf stuff just real old harley gold. this guy is the stingiest little bugger ever and he will almost never sell anything... except to me for some reason.. i got my 40el motor from him about 4.5 years ago and put it together in his honor.(hes not dead> it took me 4 trips just to get my bottom end pieces, and each time was an absolute all day event filled with hours of nonsense. i was just there a few weeks ago and scored the sickest chopper frame ever and decided to take 2 friends down to his yard from the cali area figuring they could hit him up more than i so i wanted to let someone have the in with him. i got the frame and he wouldnt sell my friends anything... nothing.. they leave bummed out but still determined. SO today i get news that ed is over there to see the old man and they are literally on day 6 of DEMOLITION they are there CRUSHING the shit, 7 TRAILERS FULL OF KNUCKS AND PANS.AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. HE STILL WONT SELL ANY OF IT AS THE DRAG IT ALL AWAY. ED YOU POOR MAN TO HAVE TO GO THERE AND WATCH THIS AND NOT BE ABLE TO DO ANYTHING. GUYS CAME DAYS AGO WITH MONEY TO BUY SOME CASES AND SHIT AND THE CON TRACTORS TOLD HIM " TAKE THE MONEY" HE DIDNT AND AFTER THE CUSTOMERS LEAVE THEY CRUSHED THE SHIT RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE OLD MAN..
