Junk yard vintage tin!

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Ratmotor, Sep 26, 2010.

  1. Got word this morning at the coffee shop that the local junk yard hauled in some vintage tin. Got the wife to drive me out to take a look see " can't drive for a month due to heart attack". Sure enough there sat a pair of late 30's Nash Lafayette sedans. One might be restorable and the other is a parts car. They said they weren't going to crush them but I didn't catch a price.....

    Those have to be pretty darn rare, quite regal looking rides. I am sure these parts would be in great demand. Cool find, take it easy and let your sweet lady cruze ya round a little. Easy to overdue it! Thanx for sharing the rare birds. ~Sololobo~

    With two cars of the same flavor coming to the wrecker you just have to wonder if some old timer finally gave up the dream of "getting around to the restoration" of one.

    Hope your recovery is speedy.

    Or...the greedy relatives got the place after he died and are throwing away all his "junk" so they can sell the place and stuff their wallets....:(
  7. "BINGO!" We have a winner...... I knew the old guy that owned the cars but had no idea the cars were still around. The family are a bunch of vultures.:eek:
