    Tow yard that says call if interested in cars. "Is this for sale?"...answer..."No, I am going to fix it". 3 years later it is still filling up with water.:confused: If anyone knows of anymore relics that are turning to soil post away.

  2. Royal, I love you but I know this will be very depressing for me. I have asked about several cars with the same response. It's sad.

    It has a taller roof than Plymouth...I think it's a Dodge.

    No "I'm going to restore it", I've heard it a 100 times. I've been a Ford guy all my live but I have only owned 1 Mustang in my life, because of the "this is a Mustang there, worth a lot of money" statements, yeah if you put tons of money in it, and its not a plain jane it may be.

    This was one of those cars that everyone knew about for years but wasn't for sale because they were gonna fix it up. I waited them out and got it this fall. Check out the pics showing how deep the wheels were sank into the dirt.

    This one was going to be soil if a friend didnt tell me about it and talk the guy in giving it to me. It was just a shell but was still a pretty solid car when I chopped it. A fellow HAMBer owns it now and I hear its looking pretty nice with some more sheet metal added.:D

    Here is the first 46 Deco truck that I looked at its a GMC 1/2 ton. The wanted 2500 for it and he said it ran and is barn kept over the phone. But I guess he wasent expecting me drive all the wat out to his house to look at it. The gas tank was in the back of the truck and the transmission was in the shed behind his house You would need to hire a logging crew to get it out as well.

    There is what's left of a nice old car sitting next to a garage here in Pasadena.
    A friend of mine discovered it way more than 20 years ago. It is/WAS an early Chevrolet coupe, about 33 or so, with side mounted wheels.
    He asked about it once and they told him NFS and don't come back. I drove by several years ago and there is almost nothing left of the car. It is a mess of sheet metal falling down around wheels buried up to the hubs. Yet only a couple of decades ago was a complete car. They had a chunk of hurricane fence staked around it to preotect from vandals and thieves. Didn't help, they and Mother Nature have killed this car. I'll try and find the place again and get a picture if I can, and IF it is still there.
