British Motors, Ltd in Des Moines - Going Out of Business Sale on 6/6

We received the following message from Denise Morris over on FB. Lots of you know Dave and have fond memories of motoring with him and his dear departed spouse LaDonna. Please spread the word!


"My name is Denise Morris and my Dad is Dave Walker with British Motors. Dad has closed his business after 34 years at his current location. He is now in the process of getting stuff ready for an auction on June 6th. Would you please spread the word to the Mini owners and the British car owners about the upcoming auction? Also, Dad will be selling a lot of the car parts prior to the auction. People can come down to the shop this Saturday, May 23rd from 1-4pm to have a look at what he has available. Please feel free to circulate this info around to anyone that would be interested. Please let me know if you have any questions. THANKS for your help. Denise"

Don't see a website to know what they have? Got a link to them or their auction? I always keep an eye out for classic Mini and MG parts since I have both.

Sorry to see another small business go. Guys and knowledge from independent mechanics can never be duplicated or bought.

Sorry, I'm similarly challenged. Suggest giving the POC a quick call on the phone. I know Dave had a bunch of classic Minis in his stable so there is a high likelihood of good parts being available.

Not likely. He was primarily a classic Mini guy.
