    I took pictures of this car in March of 2005...it's now 4 yrs 8 mos later and the car still sits rotting. This is not out in a remote field, behind a barn, or buried inside a wrecking yard...it is in the city of San Diego behind a lawyers office. As the scrawling on the back window reads, "Not for Sale". San Diego weather is pretty easy on cars but even at that this Nomad is slowly rotting...

  5. This one has been there (Bodie) a while. Legend has it that anything taken from Bodie will bring extremely bad luck.

    Saved these 2. They had been up in the hills for decades, and what I thought was amazing was the only rust through on the '33 was in the corner of the visor. The slant window turned p.u. did alright too.
    Sometimes it pays to knock on that door.

  8. Although slightly off topic by a few years I scored this 67 AMC Marlin on the weekend. Low production numbers of 2,545! Too far gone but loaded with many options I,ll part it out to fund my other hot rod projects. The cost for it? I had to deliver a 67 Charger to the guys house then just go back and get the Marlin....

    Sad to see those Caddy Eldos rotting away; not many were built.....

    If the job market does't improve soon i'm gonna end up looking like these cars. At least I have a comfy couch..... I'll have to talk the lady of the house into taking a ride up north this weekend and get you guys some pics of a few places i've found out in the desert. Things don't deteriorate quite as fast out here, but you gotta be on the look-out for rattlesnakes.

    I'm guessing it was extremely rusted underneath and was moved to where it sits with a forklift.

    This is the only other pic I could find with the black long roof. You can just see the back corner of the roof. I don't know if the pic will help. There were so many cars to look at I didn't notice if it was a hearse or not.

  25. Hey Pontiacfarmer glad your in Sweden. Thats my private stash of early 60s Pontiac parts.
     

  26. Apparantly not any more. :rolleyes:
     
  27. Ok its slowly rotting. My question is it worth more will it bring more cash today than it would have brought 4 years and 8 months ago? Of course the answer is it will indeed bring more today. OldWolf
     
  28. in the early sixties that plymouth would have been a $35.oo dollar car I think it is worth more today than when parked.:cool: OldWolf
