    i posted about the 29 pickup i had bought the other day. well i ended up buying a 54 ford customline with a y block, a 54 packard sedan and a 26 t coupe this week. all complete and even had titles. The packard has hubcaps and head in trunk and came with extra engine. They were a little better than i thought after i got them home and they got a little rain on them.

    That Packard looks exactly like the one my aunt drove the peewadie hell out of when I was 13. She scared the hell out my dad with it when she gave him a ride in it.:D

    That looks like a nice batch of cars to get your hands on, what are the plans?

    the t was in nice shape, doors still click shut like new and even had the original key in the ignition. you right about the timing, i found out about the cars so i grabbed some cash and headed out and worked out the details and went home with them.

    Great score. When I was on the road as a sales rep I ran across all kinds of vehicles and to my wifes consternation, drug quiet a few home. Now that I work in the office more I have time to work on some of those projects. The barn finds are still out there guys.

    ive allways enjoyed cheerios. ive allready got about 20 cars im keeping and may keep part of these, mainly bought it for the t coupe to compare to my 27 bodywise and owner made me a deal on all 3. but i dont really want to cut t up personally as its all there but not entirely against it.
