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

  1. I have seen two VW vans retrieved in videos like that and I don't think that one was in either video.

    I remember reading about that a few years ago. I had thought it was this one, but not absolutely sure.
     
  4. Noticed this Packard 400 at an auto repair facility quite awhile ago. Finally got around to taking some pics of it yesterday. Packard 400-01.jpg

    Think it was a Hemi? Yep that 35 Chevy Master and 34 Chrysler are both rare Ozzie bodies! The Chevy was owned by an old friend who sold it. The Chrysler is owned by a fellow down in Victoria and now undercover for a rainy day project?

    Here's a rare 1933 Chrysler Royal convertible Victoria I stumbled onto via the interweb and posted at 10963, can anyone identify it as I never bookmarked it? 60W_6.JPG 60W_5.JPG
    Just stumbled onto this OEM RHD version in Spain

    Went looking at the local junk yards (looking for a rear end for my shoebox) and spotted this Mainline. The owner of the junkyard said he overpaid for the car ($1,500) and asked me if I knew what it was worth which I don't. He also said that he would hate to crush it. I'm guessing he'll sell it for cheap to get it out of his lot. If anybody is interested let me know.
    For now, it's Sitting and Rotting![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Never saw wheelwell trim like that Mainline has above, and I thought I knew a lot about '53 Fords. I assume thats an aftermarket accessory thing. That car looks really solid and that grille and bumper would be worth pretty good money by themselves. Getting $1500 back out of the car would be tough though unless it was parted out on eBay or something. Definitely would be a shame to crush it though. The hood hinges bring really good money if they're not broken, some Merc guy would love to have those fender lips and headlight bezels too, ect.

    Look close, are those remains some JATO parts? I think there's an urban legend about it....
