    A neighbor invited me to his dad's farm for a cookout. He said there may be some old cars I may be interested in. Apparently they were hauled to the farm by a relative that was coming back later to fix them up. Apparently later never came.

    Salvage what you can and scrap the rest. Use the scrap proceeds to buy a nice project.

    ........Guess you have no hunters down there in S.C........If those cars were in Wisconsin......they would have 30,000 rounds of lead in them.....Hope you get a few parts off them
     
  23. neighbor's dad had his cookout about 30 years too late.
     
  24. there are alot of good parts there yet. well worth your time to strip them clean. the olds has the most saveable stuff. with out crushing I would say you have about 2-400 worth in parts. I would love to find something like that out here.

    tok
     
  25. Most of that will buff right out!

    What a shame. Esp. The Olds, appears to be the bigger-body "98", no less...That´s a rare piece.
