    The guy your buddy bought it from must have been a couple coupons short of a toaster oven. A thousand bucks? The Z28 engine alone is worth at least 5-6 times that. Sounds suspicious to me.

    Suggest you post a photo on the FB page "Fans of Detroit Dragway". Maybe someone there will recognize the car and give you some history. Just a thought.

    Well now I can watch the Barret-Jackson Auction knowing that they are not the only group driving down the price of our old cars! Now the NC hoodlums have joined in on the fray, go get them Iron Lords. he he!

    Way cool...did you guys find anything interesting from the title? Can you run a VIN history report in Michigan? Awesome, Skeeter! Thanks for sharing JJ!

    You guys from the south need to stay the hell out of Michigan,when all you do is come up here and steal our cars away from us. :) Lucky dog and the rat/spy who lives up here needs to move down south with the rest of you carpet baggers. $1000 :( steal of the decade especially when you consider it was not among friends.

  12. Funny thing is that Fucker Skeeter is from Detroit and relocated here a year or so ago. He's known about the car before he moved here.

    Absolute right place, right time type deal.

  13. Proof positive, there's deals out there.
    This last summer, someone I know, sold his "under construction" '57 Chevy show car for $2500 w/enclosed trailer.

    Hey Iron Lords--someone call me! That's worth a road-trip with the camera!

  19. Spent some time with Skeeter on Wednesday going over the car. There is so much cool stuff about the car. Also, it is so close to starting and running that I'm begging him to help. He has to focus on the shoebox first then the gasser.

    Man I can't wait to hear this thing run!

    Thanks for coming Angel of Sin! Yeah it'll be back in the shop sooner or later but since we are limited on space so until he gets his '50 out of shop. So maybe around spring it should be back.
  24. Don't even know Skeeter, but.......... I think I hate that wrong??;):D

    Yeah, me too...Tell us the rest of the story! Where was it goin' on the trailer???

  29. The owner sold the building and was moving the car to a different location. Skeeter was at the right place at the right time.

  30. Have him bring it up to Autorama. Share the car with the great people of Detroit!!!!
