dbaer says it is time to pass the torch to another Cadillac enthusiast.

- An established, reputable
business, cadillacville is well known among Cadillac aficionados. An
ongoing business that is receiving and shipping orders daily. The
first day you take over you are conducting business.
- Because we are so well
established, other Cadillac parts suppliers refer customers.
- We have been a regional
source for 'retiring' Cadillacs for 30 years. People and other
wrecking yards call us regularly to dispose of their Cadillacs. Thus
you are able to maintain an inventory of the unique, sought after parts that
are not available through other means, such as a wholesale warehouse.
Why I like this business.
- I've always liked stories about
someone finding an object at a garage sale for $2.00 and then later discover
it to be a valuable collectors item that resales for several thousand
dollars at Christie's auction. So, I like finding the
right car for a couple hundred dollars, then prospecting for the choice
pieces that are worth several hundred to a few thousand dollars and still
having the whole rest of the car with more parts that will eventually sell
for perhaps several additional thousand dollars. Somebody said,
"Buy low, sell high", I like that line of thinking.
- I get to talk to a lot of very
interesting people from all over the US and many foreign countries.
- There isn't the problem of inventory obsolescence.

because they would be very expensive to move and they're part of my future

- I'm to retirement age, so working a
simpler program these days.
A new, younger, energetic owner could take
this to a higher level.
Can the business be moved?
- Yes it can. What is being
offered for sale is: the parts, just all of the parts. A lot are already off cars in storage,
plus all the good items remaining on the cars. The business is about selling parts.
So, purchashing only the parts makes it very feasible to
pack them all into semi trailers or, used shipping containers, and then move
them to the buyers desired
location. It's possible the buisness could be operated from this facility
for a period of time.
- Location is near I-5 between Seattle,
WA and Portland, OR. Just off I-5 but yet in a rural, low cost area,
with established zoning for this purpose.
Why mail order only?
- Good marketing takes the
product directly from the producer to where there is the best price demand,
anywhere in the world, so the transaction isn't limited by location of
seller or buyer.
- Expenses are lower.
- Insurance cost is much lower.
- Security at it's best.
