I see some angled headlights I'd like to get my hands on. Makes you sick looking at all that "treasure".

I like the line in the ad : "Old Volkswagens have a habit of becoming other things. Like new dune buggies."

From their mention of "24 years ago" I'd guess the ad is from 1973.

That's an understatement. Not to many more doors either. I'm sure China got a lot of use out of those old soldiers.

I see 58 caddy eldorado. All you could make out of it in the photo is a couch.

At least 2 55 fords. Even if you had just the trim off those vehicles imagine how much it would all be worth.

Actually there's two '56 Pontiacs if you stare close. 2 '59's, too. And I bet you could pluck enough good pieces of trim out of that stack to bring double or triple in today's dollars, what the whole pile brought as scrap metal in 1973. (I have a buddy who told me of buying rough roller 5-6-7 Chevies out of junkyards in the mid-80s, saving them from being crushed, for $5 and $10 for the whole car).

The 58-59 Chevy, 61 Chrysler, the '59 Pontiac side spears... lots of expensive trim pieces or lenses on those. And that's just stuff I've priced out or sold myself.
