Too many projects

I already have more projects than I will probably finish in my lifetime. My 52 Plymouth coupe, and my Indian motorcycles. Plus keeping my tractor I use in my mowing business running. Then my brother recently died leaving me all his projects. Most of them are pickups from the 70's and 80's. He was going to fix one day. I will just give to the scrapper rather than dealing with the DMV. A couple cars I will keep, his 56 chevy , and 69 corvette Both cars needing serious repair. At 77 I am lucky to be in fairly good health, but don't need more projects. Anyone else dealing with a relatives stuff after they died. Stan

Thats sad. Sorry for your loss. Where are you at? Those 70's and 80's trucks are a hot ticket right now. A little work on craigslist, or facebook marketplace, and you could probably get way more than scrap for them. I dont have too much stuff, but I often wonder what my family would go through getting rid of all my crap after I was gone...
Good song by Delbert McClinton called Too Much Stuff, makes alot of sense LOL!

No, But I've had friends that have been in this situation.

I just can't seem to sell any of my Babies.

But this Summer two or maybe three will be sold. I just don't have the time.

My '56 Chevy 210 needs nothing. She'll prob sell first. Then one of my old Corvette Convertibles, hate to see her go. I've got a few things to do, then off she goes. Twenty yeas ago my Dad and I installed new running gear, interior and etc. Tough to let this gal go..

This will give me more time and certainly lower my collector insurance premium. Which always seems to be steadily increasing every year.

Sorry to hear about your brother passing. I had a number of years dealing with my Dad's estate before my brother, who was the executor, finally sold everything.
As my user name implies, I might know a bit about your situation, although I haven't been handed more projects.
If the Corvette isn't TOO rough, I may be willing to help relieve you of that...
18 months ago, I passed on a '69 427/390 4 speed car that needed a fair bit of work, but was a decent driver. I wanted to keep my money to paint a '66 Chevelle I was almost done restoring. Long story short, the 2 attempts by "bodymen/painters" didn't turn out very good and I wish I had bought the Corvette instead...
