    I was at the 2nd annual Woodward dream cruise standing next to a guy when a 1960 Ford Falcon passed us... I said to the guy, "man I'd love one of those Falcon"... Hey laughed at me and said "are you serious"... I hesitated and said "yeah, I think they look cool"... the guy said "I know where you can get one cheap"... sure as sink on shit a couple of days later I scored a bone stock all original (down to the seat covers) 1960 Ford Falcon for $1200... it does happen...

    Time for some covert ops. Find out where this barn is and do the "lost hiker" thing and "stumble" across it and look for yourself. Don't forget the essentials; a camera, beef jerky, your mitts, and a raw steak for the dog.

    Have you thought about asking the older lady out on a date? Pick her up in the hot rod, flowers, nice dinner. You know the moves!

    I don't know, I might just want to avoid the phone and simply wander by again. Some folks are weird about the phone.

    Man you must be busting. Good luck.

    I bought a very doable 47 Ford 2 door, with boxes of Drake parts no engine or trans for less than a grand in the spring. I do no post pictures so for some of you it did not happen.
    They are still out there keep looking.

    I might be a little wary if you lost cel phone reception before you got there. Leave a note before you go!

    Nice pic of the Yugo...rare car...but not as rare as they should be.
    Customer: "can I get a gas cap for a Yugo?"
    Parts counter guy: "sounds like a fair trade to me".
     
  24. Any further news on this one?
