Excess Durant Parts

Hope this finds the Durant family all alive and well in this very trying time. I suppose the one good thing that is coming out of this is that we've had time to not only collect our thoughts but to collect and organize our Durant stock.
I've just finished going through my Durant "stuff" and I've come to realize that I need to part with literally tons of 27-28-29 Durant parts.
For example: 7 hoods/5 transmissions/3 sets of springs/4 ring gears/ 2 1/2 motors/2 rear ends/front assembly/4 radiators w/cowl/ many brake drums and parts/manifolds/ pumps/crankshafts/heads/shocks/spokes/electrical parts/emblems/door and window hardware/ new shaft levers etc.
All taking up a lot of room! I have 3 choices: junk yard, sell them, or something to consider is a donation to our proposed museum 9for them to sell to support the museum).
I'm sure this is a dilemma that most of us are faced with. Would like your thoughts on the museum part.

Re: Excess Durant Parts

Hi Dennis
I think it would be a fantastic idea to donate the parts to the Durant Museum to sell to raise funds. If that's what you decide to do, let us know and we'll decide how to get them and where to store them.
