    Here's one I pulled out of the underbrush in Kentucky where it was sitting and rotting and dragged all the way to California. Years before someone had covered the roof with an aluminum sheet using tap screws. The wood, etc. underneath was perfect.

    Here's a bad picture of an old coupe I took on the fly last year. It's been sitting on the edge of a crop field for the past 12 years that I know of. Odds are it has been there much longer. Still there. Last year I wanted to inquire on it, and pulled into the old farm house that sits on the same property. Very scary and odd. When I pulled in, there was someone peeking through the curtains in the window. I got out of my truck, and a scary looking gal came out from the back and was by the house peeking around at my truck. I called over in a friendly gesture and started walking towards her trying not to look aggressive or threatening, and she turned and fast walked back and went in the back door of the house. I stood there for a minute calling out in a friendly manor, but she never came back out. I took that as either she was scared, or just not the type to want unwelcomed visitors, so I took that as my que to just let it go and leave. But this old coupe remains just sitting there.

    You're killing me man, that looks like a Kaiser quarter to me, are these recent pics?
     
  11. That's a 66... But due to the HAMB no Mustang policy no one here will care. Except me. :)
     
  12. If anyone cares, a 64-1/2 would have a 260 V8 logo on the fender. It's not clear enough in the photo to tell.

    Yep. But thats about my extent of knowlege on Mustangs between the .5 and the 65. But i also remember them saying it doesn't have the original motor in it, so, dunno more than that.


     
  16. A 65 has this grill.

    A few years ago I found these sitting in the woods. Probably drove past them all of my life & never knew they were there.

    That "truck" is a Cadillac flower car for funerals. Used them up North for ganster funerals, I guess. Never saw one anywhere in Texas.

    Bow your head, say three Hail Marys, and send me $275.00 in cash. All will be forgiven. Now, go my Son.

    With an attitude like that, one can only hope the San Andreas fault will wake up and make Nevada the West Coast. Happy landing, loser.

    The Chevy looks pretty solid and savable, What about the Ford ( I think!?!)? Any hope of saving these?

    Ancient anti-theft devices. Looks like a '58-59 Merc or Ford in the background.
     
  29. Looks like it's been there quite a while?
