That video's like showing a coke addict a dump truck load with one straw.

Somebody must have died because that's a collection not an investment.
They could have been undercutting the entire G used parts market and made a fortune.

Agreed but they are a business and obviously not making money here.
You sell more parts than they do.
They want to deal with certified mechanic and body shops on a daily basic.
460 and 461 no longer see these shops.
I bet you could buy the lot for 2 cents more on the pound than the Chinese will but it for scrap.
There is no broad market for these parts that will sustain a large business' bottom line.
It's costing them more in storage than it is worth to them.

Whole thing is a catch 22.
The market is flooding with ex military G's from Europe.
People need to buy those first and begin the repairs.
Then parts will be needed.
Many new to G owners are buying a $100,000 vehicle well used and often abused for 20-30 cents on the dollar.
They expect that deal to carry through until they are done restoration.
They spend more time asking dealers and vendors questions that have contradictory or impossible to say answers about fitment and options and bitch about the price of good used parts and don't buy.
This puts vendors out of business.
Happy to pay $30 dollars shipping to save $15 on a part that's within driving distance.
Instead support the local guy and give him his asking.
This is exactly how China goods are putting us all in the toilet.

Indeed, would love to walk around that storage for a couple of hours and see what’s all stored there.
