real estate below.
What are you buying?
- 20 Acres zoned industrial.
- This property is in
unincorporated Lewis County and is permanently zoned RAI (Rural Area
designation supports all levels of industrial usage.
- This is the only
piece of Rural Area Industrial available in unincorporated Lewis County
within 10 miles of I-5.
Why 20 Acres? In 2001 when Lewis County was
required to be in compliance with Washington State 'Growth Management Act',
it was determined that the area on the East side of I-5 is minimum 20 Acres.
This property was designated as Rural Area Industrial at that time.
- The reason this
property is zoned industrial is because of it's usage since 1990. We have
maintained a very "clean" facility.
- It has been basically
my "collection" of Cadillacs for parts people around the world have needed
to complete their cars.
Plenty of electricity including 3-phase is
available at the parcel.
- Water will require
drilling a well.
- Temporarily water
could be accessed off the 20 acres at barn.
- Excellent security
with the help of neighboring properties.

excellent piece of ground, mostly level with adequate drainage.

parcel is determined by current usage and not designation. 2018 property tax
is $563.00. 10 acres is currently 'Long Term Designated Forest Land', but
can be changed by paying the difference in property tax for the last 10
years between Open Space Land and Timber Land.

After 47 years in business,
dbaer says it is time to pass the torch to another Cadillac enthusiast.
An 'impossible to replace or duplicate' inventory.
Inventory that has been accumulating for about 35 years.
As the inventory of cars has been whittled down over the last 10 years, the
remaining ones are primarily in the
'60's. Also, a
good sampling of years from '49-'85.
off the 20 acres, the
barn, shop building, various semi and mobile home trailers are full of
The remaining 500 Cadillacs still have lots of
valuable parts on them.

Is there room for growth?....... Yes!
- Expand 'Years' of Cadillacs into the
1990's and beyond. An example: I think the 1992-2002 Eldorado's and
Seville's will become highly sought after.
- Expand into other car makes. Chevy, Mopar, Mustangs,
Hondas, Toyotas, Construction Equipment, etc.
- Restoration, Rebuilt, and Reproduction 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, as opposed to reproduction, 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.
This 20 acres has an established zone designation.
No other properties in the greater area could now get that designation.
As a side note: Our entire 46 acres, including the home on it's 5 acres, is
I like mail order only.
- Good marketing takes the
product directly from the producer to where there is the best price demand,
anywhere in the world. This way the transaction isn't limited by location of
seller or buyer. Whereas drop-in traffic is not going to be
willing to pay high premium prices.
- Expenses such as
insurance, location cost, utilities, etc remain lower.
Lack of onsite retail activity, including lookers
out around the cars, keep insurance costs lower.
- 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
attempting future theft.

This property is licensed as a wrecking
yard but I have only used it to supply Cadillac parts
ordered from collectors
around the world. In the state of Washington in order to remove a part from a
vehicle requires a Wrecking Yard License.
However, this has been
about the collection of Cadillacs I have acquired over the years.
I have kept
the property very clean since I moved to this former farm in 1990. There are no
greasy engines, etc laying around.
Just good clean earth. When I have removed
cars, the grass grows green!
