    This car was displayed at the Petersen for Deuce Week. Same family has owned it since 1934. Parked in a one car garage in 1959. Unearthed on Feb. 19th, 2012.[​IMG]

    I do not normally get all worked up over a '32 Ford, but this is freakin cool as all get out! Amazing it could stay untouched for so long.

    My '26 Roadster was a one family owned car and sat in barn from 1960 until I pulled it out in 2010. so they are still out there... but a '32! wow, just wow!

    The rear fenders are reinforced and there's a piece of pipe sticking throught the left rear quarter. He installed eyebolts on the door hinges for rope. I think the lumber was stacked on the running boards and fenders and tied down.

    It's crazy to think people have stuff just locked up for years. Great looking car.

    The car is probably worth more than the property it was parked on all those years!!!
    Hopefully this is one that goes into a collection and is kept just as it is!
     
  25. Can I be next to find one of these? Can I, can I, can I...

    Pleeeeaaaaaaaasssssssseee!!!
