Sorry guys, I have been doing that work thing for a bit. I saw madmanmerc posted the phone which is good. Here is the info on the shop.

EUROPEAN CONNECTION

Falmouth, Kentucky
That is about 30 miles SOUTH of Cincinnati, on US 27 East of I-75.

Contacts are:
Becky [office manager]
Bernard [owner]

At present they have no Internet site however in the spring I plan on GPSing all the cars and mapping the farm so Becky can match photos to a database to a GPS location so parts can be pulled easier on the 700 remaining cars that did not get crushed.

859 654 3700

that is the only number I have now. I am not sure but I think when I posted up the 800 number earlier, it melted. I am planning another trip up there for parts in the next couple of weeks. It requires coordination with Bernard to do anything besides order parts on the phone.

NO COLLECTOR CARS WERE CRUSHED IN THE CLEANUP. NO SPECIAL INTEREST CARS WERE CRUSHED.

For quick turn, contact Becky. OK, that did not sound right. To get parts quickly, contact Becky. Better. Let me know if they are being helpful. I assume they are but you never know.

man that is sooo sad

i see some MBs there with what look like good bodys but it's always tough to tell especially if the area had been flooded.

more likely possible rust issues with body panels but if it's free or really really cheap it could be a nice temporary fix.

thx

None of the cars in the field were flooded. That farm is about 500 feet above the flood plain. It was the shop where his collector cars and previously pulled motors and parts were stored that was completely flooded.
