Art & Inspiration Sitting and Rotting.............picture thread

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Royalshifter, Jan 31, 2009.

  1. Even if these cars are not restored, they should at least be saved for their unique parts.

    That's one of the reasons why this hobby is so darn expensive...too many usable old parts going to the scrap pile just because the car itself is at a point past saving. The parts may not be concurs quality (for the show car crowd) but can be a project-saver if its not being reproduced otherwise.

    I would bet every unique part jerked off an old rust bucket before it hit the compactor or the dust pile could be sold immediately here on HAMB!:D

  4. I enjoy reading this thread even though its sad. But like the saying goes, you can't save them all. I wish I could. Maybe if I had Ted Turner money....

    Nope. Check the classifieds. If that statement were true the ads would be deleted daily. Parts cars are for sale sometimes at less than scrap and still don't sell. It's a common remark that doesn't pass the $ test.

    A fellow I know of found a Safari up the Ottawa Valley a couple of years ago. I hope to see him this summer and find out what he is doing with it.

    A lot of Safaris were used for Nomad parts. The only parts I need are one dash ash tray, with stainless cover, and the rear seat side panels stainless trim. I can make the panels or buy Nomad panels but am unable to find out if any other 57 Pontiacs use that piece of curved trim. I included the best picture I could find of the rear piece. If anybody is at one of these 57 Safari wrecks please look for those rear trim pieces, happy to pay for your effort. thanks

    I don't know, I got it out of the Denver area, it was an East Coast car at one time, hence the extensive rust.

    Look at C/L Tucson. I believe there is an Olds wagon there now. Reasonably priced.
    Theyre my favorite GM offering from tri5 too.
     
  15. I agree.

  17. But how many of those were dumped there after the 18 Days' Campaign of WWII?
     
  18. None of all this comes close to Uncle Sam's Desert Boneyards!

  19. From what is visible and identifiable, they all look post war, 50's and up.
