    I'm thinking keep also. My car had manual steering on it when I got it. Real bear to steer with the close ratio box. Old gear made a good door stop for years, then it got tossed in a move. Probably worth some serious coin these days. Along with the original radiator......

    It depends on your conditions!

    I've had 60+ Cars over the years and I've probably had extra parts for all of them. If I had a couple of Barns, I could keep stuff. But I have a one car garage with a 4 Post Lift with limited storage. I've got 2 projects going on right now, (thankfully the Camaro is at a shop with room), but parts take up room! I almost never keep body panels because of space

    So if I have parts, I try to sell them at a reasonable amount and if I don't sell them, I toss them! I don't have the time to try to deal with penny pinchers who then don't understand that it costs $$ to ship stuff

    I guess we all have different ideas, but IMHO, everything you have is a potentially desirable item with the possible exception of the 2bbl carb & intake. Can't see any market for that, but everything else would have value. IMHO of course.
