You suck big time!

right place right time
thoughts are things
squeaky wheel gets the grease
Oddly enough for the last year i have a vision of me picking up money on the sidewalk and within a week I find money, no joking.
I'd like someone to explain that!!
I had a vision while in new york and low and behold, found a $20.
I even had a vision that my wife would find money, told her and 4 days later she picks up a five.
If I would have been 2 minutes to late passing this guy, I wouldn't have this car. I have been looking for a 32 coupe for about 6 months, weird!
Cool story and good for you. I would build that car if it were mine. If the sub-rails are good, the rest is pretty easy. Talk about luck!
Last Fall I picked up 2 Model Ts that that were headed for the scrapper. My Brother-in-law lost 5 cars in a garage fire (none of them were insured) and had a scrapper haul them away. When the guy arrived to take the Ts I said to my Brother-in-law... you're not going to scrap the Ts are you? He said yup.... I jumped in and said I'd give him scrap price for them ($200) he said sure. I took them home and cleaned the burnt junk out of them and then listed them on Ford Barn and Craigslist. I got $1200 for the 23 T roadster pickup and sold the C-cab body for $250 and the chassis for $200. I gave my Brother-in-law another $400. He was happy, the three guys that bought the burnt Ts were happy, and I was really happy. Can't get much better than that.
Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
Wow I'm speechless

It's too much of a chop for me, I think I may sell it.
I hope you don't take too much of a beating on the price when you sell it.
Sweet! Spam fishing with a back story.
It's not chopped too much, you're just too tall.
I am too attached, it's staying right here!!
I believe it, because just today there was 2/3 of a model a coupe (no doors, deck lid) body headed to the scrap yard in Pomona. It was really rough, I didn't try to stop the guy.
I guess I should start parking across the street from my scrapper to find my elusive Roadster! !!

Being that this is the end of the year, I wonder if people are cleaning out for new years resolutions. The guy I got mine from said he was tired of tripping over it for 20 years.
You may need "therapy" (like the rest of us) but that was a good save/score!
Well I decided to sell the scrap yard car to a local guy for $1100.
I hated to do it but I didn't want it to just sit around collecting dust AND I have been wanting a fully functioning running coupe instead.
I have been doing some digging and found a bone stock 30 coupe thats been sitting in a barn in my home state of Montana fully functioning and drive-able with little to no rust for $3000. I called a few of my transport friends and got a quote of $300 and they can pick it up tomorrow.
I think this is meant to be for the simple fact that NO transport just happens to be in Montana on the day that I am thinking of buying a car and for that cheap.
I should have pictures tonight and have him paid and loaded tomorrow and at my house by end of the week.
I definately need therapy, FOMOCO THERAPY!!!!
Nice score all the way around.... hell ya
I've always liked this car, does anyone know what the wheels are? I'm guessing smoothies but what year?
One mans trash....bla bla
Cool find wish it was me ,I found a few 4 doors 50's 60's but most all the good parts are already missing from them well good luck with the one you bought
I think I have heard those called Chrome reverse wheels or steelies.
Just to be clear, the picture of the car is not the one i'm buying.
You SIR are one lucky man all the way around!
