    If you come to my house and see an old car in my barn, that is NOT defined as a 'barn find'!

  6. Great find!
    A friend of mine bought a '40 Chevy Sedan back in '88 and had his neighbour sit in the car and steer it while he towed it home....well it seems a possum had taken up residence underneath the front seat and crawled into his lap while he was being pulled, he literally pissed his pants :)

    First job, find a 4X4 guy looking for some wheels:) Seriously, looks like you've got a keeper.

    A friend of mine bought one of those from the rural area and we drove it home. Blew the farners mind when 2 kids started it. On the way home the breaks went out and dad had to foot for the tow. On further inspection we found a nickle wrapped in electric tape doing double duty as a wheel cyl piston cup.
    prolly shoulda died going down the hill.
    drive it. Those are one of the coolest.
