See pictures of
real estate below.
What are you buying?
- 20 Acres zoned industrial. Electricity is available to the parcel and water
could be accessed from the barn area.
with the help of neighboring properties and
acreage. The 20 acres is an excellent piece of ground, mostly
level with adequate drainage.
Plenty of electric power easily
available. Why 20 Acres? In 2002 when Lewis County was required
to be in compliance with State Growth Management Act, it was determined that
the East side of I-5 is minimum 20 Acres. We are kitty-corner
across I-5 from the large (approx. 600 Acre) planned Winlock Industrial Site.
- Inventory. Inventory.
Inventory. An 'impossible to replace or duplicate' inventory.
Inventory that has been accumulating for about 35 years.
barn, trailers, etc are full plus all the parts remaining on the 500
Cadillacs still here. As the inventory of cars was whittled
down, the remaining ones are primarily in the '60's. Also, a
good sampling of years from '49-'85.
- A giant website
available for Cadillac owners world-wide. Inquiries come in daily.
Email and phone number also included in sale.
- dbaer's cadillacville has
specialized in original, unique, hard to find, 1949 to 1985 parts. The
main source of which came from the more than 1,400 Cadillacs that had been accumulated for
- A very productive, well-liked Web Site,
that Cadillac people from all over the world have at their fingertips.
It has been an ongoing project since 1998 that keeps growing and growing.
It has been designed to be easily updated and expanded.
- An established, reputable
business, cadillacville is well known among Cadillac aficionados. An
ongoing business that is taking and filling orders daily.
The first day you
take over you are conducting business.
- Because we are so well
established, other Cadillac parts suppliers often refer customers due to
our specializing in original and NOS parts.
Is there room for growth?....... Yes!
- Expand 'Years' of Cadillacs into the
1990's and beyond. I think the 1992-2002 Eldorado's and
Seville's will be sought after.
- Expand into other car makes. Chevy, Mopar, Mustangs,
Hondas, Toyotas, Construction Equipment, etc.
- Reproduction and Rebuilt parts.
- Expand into restoration and sales of
cars. Any type of business building such as a large shop
building or factory could be
housed on this industrial property.
Why I like this business.
- From my 47 years experience in
business, gross profit is most important. Having the original sought after
parts allows for high gross profit.
- 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.
Meanwhile I still
have the whole rest of the car that will someday have scrap value which in
2008 was worth $600 per hulk!
"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.
If it sits a few years, it usually increases in value, sometimes quite a
- 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 such as insurance cost, location
cost, utilities and more, because of no onsite retail activity.
- Security at it's best
by not having foot traffic. Security is really of the upmost importance.
If 'strangers' (customers and others) don't have a chance to see where
specific items are at, it makes it a lot harder for them to even think about
Prices and terms.
