where about in gimli is this ?
Ford wagon in the woods behind my house...
Thanks! Truely a dream-car come true for me. It is a truely solid rust free Colorado car. Only bodywork we did was a credit card size patch at the bottom of the left fender. We painted it wit Wimbledon white sealer for now to hide the scratches and just to clean it up. One day it'll get a better finish on it. I felt like a 5 yr old at Christmas looking at a brand new bike!
I did a thread on my Skyliner build at the AACA forum site. I am (as usual) starting off going the restoration route, but end up veering off into Custome-land! I have a 64 Ford 3x2 setup that needs an air cleaner for her. For now she's a fun cruiser that gets loved at least every week.
I am flattered! I really have had many good things happen in my life with the help of those 3 words and a little confidence.... "you never know"
In all seriousness, how badly rusted is this? I need some things off a wagon like that.For instance, the dog leg area of the back door both and the corresponding wheel well area as well as the spare tire holder(floor area). PM me if anything can be salvaged to save mine.
Found up in Jerome, Az Same old story.
I love Corbits, I have dreamed about finding a 1935 Corbit with the 1934 Auburn body to make into a 1/2 ton pick up, it would be so sleek and gorgeous even unmodified.
The place is Reichert's Auto
Minerva Rd and Hwy 8 Gimili MB
Fuck me........ a gen-u-ine mid 70's Harley XS 250 dirt bike.....damnnnn
Here's one thats melting into the ground near where I live... Same old story... Not interested in selling it, but doing nothing to help preserve it either... It may look decent in the photo, but floors are gone and bottom edges and firewall have some old fiberglas repairs showing... I will keep asking, as they don't seem to mind my stopping by, but don't think it will ever happen...
It's BAD. I've already gone through and the only thing salvagable are the trim and the grill. The trim is all dinged up though. I might cut the grill out.
What a willys sitting out like that. Where is it? huh huh huh where is it? I'll help it i promise
Not knowing willys every well but is that another one sitting along the bank behind the pick up?
Take a good look at those pix. It's a Willys nose on something else. Body is not a Willys coupe.
Looks like a fiberglass Willys front end sitting on another make coupe body.
And isn't that a Henry J just to the right of the "Willys"?
Don't give up I got my 36 after asking about ti like 100 times over 15 years.
Looks like a 46-ish Ford coupe.
I feel better now. Looking at it more i can see a rear window. I also thought that looked like the rear of a Henry J.
That looks like a Henry J to me.
I'm thinking Henry J too.
Sitting in a field not for sale
That is so cool... thinking man cave trailer.. though might be a little low on the headroom lol!
These cars are sitting right along US 101 about 100 miles north of San Francisco, I could use a few trim parts on the 59. ..... bring a chainsaw!
I was driving 101 thru Hopland all the time when they did that 20 years ago or so. The Caddy and 59 Chevy pissed me off and still do. The trees were planted in the cars on purpose. Dumb asses if you ask me.
But I thought everyone on the HAMB was infallible? I was just being cute though, I hope I didn't offend.
Was that some sort of art thing?
now how could you be offensive with THAT avatar???
Raisin fans might be offended by it.
.... tree huggers! It all part of a "sustainable energy" get away for the bay area PC folks.
