    My old auto mechanic's teacher found out about my new '57 Chevy wagon project , and told me of one he parted out on his mother's property years ago , it was still there , and anything I want for the taking is mine , along with a A Corvair Monza (not pictured) and BIG ASS late 60's Oldsmobile ninety-eight

    Where is THIS place at?
  4. Hey Dog427435, This photography you do must be a hobby or you are a professional photographer! Most of the shots are fantastic works of art imho! You should do some calenders, maybe one for '20s-30s, one 40s-50s, a tri 5 calender and a Corvette calender. I would definately buy some! Looking at all these rusty wrecks really makes me appreciate what good condition my newest project is in...

  11. these really pain me.:(

  12. Wow! I wonder what the story with those is.

    Thank you, though I’ve had a camera around my neck for the last 50 years I can’t claim ownership to all the pictures I post!
    Besides always taking shot’s, I’m a collector also. I get pictures from estate sales, garage sales, flea markets, etc and off the net.
    I enjoy sharing my collection and would like to also thank the numerous other photographers whose work I post!

    Here's a cool Hudson sitting and rotting away at a yard 2 miles from my house. Been there as long as I can remember. It can probably be had for a 6-pack of beer, but it's pretty far gone. Certainly beyond my skills to bring her back to life.

    My '56 F250 as it was when I got it. That was before the unfortunate bulldozer incident.

    Hi! Mostly a lurker here, but I enjoy reading the forums.

    These belonged to a relative, currently resting behind the family home. I remember riding in the Merc woody as late as 1965.

    She's been under the tarp since '86. Starting to get things back in shape (baby steps).

    Looks like a '54 Caddy Flower Car. I've been trying to get an old flower car for years. Had a '47 slip through my fingers. Wound up with a '47 Series 62 saved out of an old welding shop though. Had been sitting there for about 15 years.
