Damn, I tried to call Joe about 6 months ago, I don't even remember what I
was going to ask him now. Sad to hear he has passed on.

For the last (many) years Joe was into rails and off road racing VW's. I
haven't been to the warehouse in at least 5 or 6 years so I'm not sure what
all is left there now. there were several parts vehicles, probably a few
buses, ghias, and bugs but I really don't remember. The storage was
haphazard at best. I have to run into Beaumont tomorrow so I'll pass by and
see if anything is visible outside so I can give y'all an idea. I may close
the office for a few hours Saturday to go have a look inside.
