WHERE ARE ALL THE INVADERS? LOL!

You should figure out which ones you want to save for yourself and then offer all the rest of them to us on a first come first served basis at a reasonable set price
(to you) with an accompanying photo of the garage (a 10 drugstore 4x6"), so that some of us (like myself) could have a piece (or more) of this historic "Garage made of oil cans" history. I already see a few that I would consider buying from these pics alone. Just a thought.....

Hi to everyone.
Thanks for the interest in our oil can garage demo.
As you can imagine, I've received many messages about the cans.

Here's my story... I have been extremely busy this summer with various labor-intensive projects. I expect to be finishing most of those sometime late October. After that, we plan on sorting, cleaning, and posting the cans on ebay.

More details to follow.

I know it's been a long while, but an update is in order.
After the cans have been stashed away in my storage barn for two years, they finally have a new home... to an avid collector by the name of Nathan.
Here is a few pics of him during the unenviable task of sorting and boxing cans for transport.
I'm glad they went to a good home.

It was quite an adventure to go pick these up wayyy up north. Neil was great to deal with and was fun to hear the story of the building in person. Lots and Lots of cans.

It took me almost 5 hours to sort and load the cans and I was hustling.

Some of the cans are turning out pretty decent when cleaned and there are some that are going to be for the rust lovers out there!

If you need some Quaker States, Pennzoils, etc to fill your rack at a good price, PM me.

Thanks Again Neil!
