Wish I could get the taillights off that '60 Dodge Seneca wagon. They fit '55-'56 Fords.
my late father in law had a 57 chevy wagon in rough shape. he once told my he wouldn't take less than 10 grand for it, then with a smile he said, " but i wouldn't pay more than $200 for it either." he was a shrewd business man
here's my submission for today,took em on my way to drop my daughter off at the skateboard park,not as pretty as others.i couldn't get a shot of the 55 Olds convertible sun was bright,,
The 2 57's on the previous page are killin' me... sob
Thanks to some help here are some pics from a junk yard in southern Manitoba
and some more
In the last pics the first one is a 1931 Chevy roadster pickup and the 4 mercs that are pictured are just a few that he has.
These look like the same cars from a movie called "population 436" or something like that, it's a ScyFy movie.
Don't know. This guy has about 500 cars and everything is for sale. He also has hundereds of door bumpers and fenders pulled from past cars. He has got everything. At the swapmeets he shows up with his early 50's Chevy pannel and unloads his trailer for 4 or 5 hours full of lenses and everything else. here are some more pics
i think i saw that movie before, is it about a small town that has to keep its population the same amount all the time, so when someone new is in town some1 has to die?
is his name bill and is that by notre dame?
Willix, please tell me you have a bigger pic file of this?? This shot would make an AMAZING piece of art hangin' in my living room! Nice pics!
Theres a whole fleet of these 46-47 trucks rotting away near me!
And a 41 "big truck" panel
Damn, a lot of these shots would fit right in with the Friday Nite Art thread!
What part of the world are these in?
Unfortunately no. That is absolutely a great picture. I will try to dig up the link to the picture link that is large & full of hi quality mostly copywrite pictures. Most are google images & links. I think this particular Caddy I robbed from a car ad.
Far Northern California, just south of Oregon.
Yes those are what you think they are.
Name it "The last of the dinosaurs."
I would seriously drag every single one of these things home if I could.
great thing we got going here boys and girls, i come back time and again looking at this thread over and over. this and others like cars in barns ect.... i am 55 years old and it still takes me back to being 10 years old, 45 years, ago.. time flies... and memories of the back pages of rod and custom , vintage tin section....... the first place i went in every issue. still do when i find old issues, still gonna find gold in them there hills as they would say. thankx a bunch, keep them coming and keep finding them. there is still a lot of tin out there waiting, great job everyone. dermott.
This owuld make a cool rod... up for Auction this weekend in Parksville BC.
1950 ish Commer Cob delivery. I almost made an offer, but too much other stuff to finish.
That wagon is for sale for perhaps a couple hundred at best... Probably just take it really. The good ones he wants a few hundred for but the not so sought after stuff I dont think he much cares for it. Almost all those pics are from the same lot.
LN7 Nut; that '37 Nash Lafayette is near Cadillac, Sask; right off of highway 13. It probably is the same one as I've only seen one like it. Its sitting behind some bushes, at where an old (now abandoned) farm used to be. You can see it from the highway, and unfortunately its been picked over a fair bit over the years. If it had the hood, grill and all the other valuable parts I would have snatched it up. Unfortunately finding a grill for it now is damn near impossible; or at least for a sane sum of money.
So yeah chances are its the same one you know of. Sounds like your farm is quite close mine.
