    If I had a pile of loot to shove in his face I'm sure it may be a little different but I do say " hey I will pay you for this or that " shit I have only gotten the 41 Plymouth out of the yard and home.They act like I'm taking car after car out the back gate.I have two kids so money is not falling out of my pockets.on another note I have been talking to a guy around the corner. He has over 30 "Classics" and asked if I want to work this winter ! He said he is building 3 cars for folks right now. A 53 chevy belair, 57 2 door post,and a 41 ford pick up! Damn right around the corner from me this whole time ..It's going to be a great winter

    They own a scrap business as well. You may need to talk to one of the brothers. Ask for the boss man.

    I could be wrong, but I suspect that is from a mid sixties GMC truck.

    A Futura IS a limo style by default, so that redundancy would not have been more correct. ;)

    Man this is wrong. You should post em if you want to. The orignal premis of this thread was cars that couln't be bought and were going to waste away. Read the first post. I think Eddie is just giving these cars one last chance to be enjoyed before their ultimate demise. Come on guys, face it , You Can't save em all, that is what this thread is about. Its cool that some of these cars have been saved. I enjoyed the pictures he was posting. He was enjoying shareing them.

    Eddie isn't the only one here who works a scrap yard.

    Those of you whining (that aren't doing it in jest) need to put on your big girl panties & deal with it.
