These ads pop up on Craigslist from time to time, where some dude has been hoarding bikes and bike parts for several decades. Somebody buys that stuff, eventually. Mostly it's junk, but not always.

I remember back when I lived in Indiana there was a old dude outside town who collected hubcaps. Hanging from all his fences, outside walls, inside walls, from the ceiling, on shelves. He had tens of thousands. If you needed it, he had it, he knew where it was, and he'd sell it to you.

Then one day he died, and the family put them all up for sale. I imagine there's a shop somewhere with thousands of used hubcaps.
