  1. 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

    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?

    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.

    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. ;)
