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

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

  1. That oil filter collection on the roof impresses me. The oil draining out of them prevents rust. And ya never know when ya might get poor and need to use them.

  4. I did a little spring road trip yesterday. And I spotted this yard art. Sitting and rotting. 20170414_153309.jpg 20170414_153327.jpg 20170414_152214.jpg

    I would take the Healey in a heartbeat.
     
  8. Unfortunately, the Healey is not for sale. I don't know why the owner lets the body shop leave it out there for so long. You can see daylight through the tops of the front fenders, now.
     
  9. The owner and the dog were in the yard, or that sign would have worked. lol A nice guy, and had a cool 39 Ford coupe in his garage too. Ron...

    The '59 behind the '61 is the same one in the other picture. Didn't look at the Vette on the trailer. It is probably getting work done on it by the shop just outside the frame of that picture. I think they do a lot of classic Chevy stuff, I go to the shop next to it, so don't know that guy.

  14. I know where a collection of kinda rough 55 chevy cars are at. Two are 2 door wagons one a 2 dr sedan and a 4 door. The guy wants $3500 cash for the lot. He will not sell them separate or sell even a flake of paint off of one of them. When I looked at them I decided to buy them. But the owner would not take a check. So I went and got the cash. and was fixing to go get them. Then I simply changed my mind. decided I didn't need them and liked my cash better. I still have the cash and the cars are still there. I think it would take a farm tractor & a trailer and a chainsaw to get them out. they are 50 miles from my place. If I get the chance I will take pictures.

    What's left of this 55 Chevy looks better than some I've seen people sell as projects.

    Is the 57 4 door hardtop a BelAir? Or a 210? It's a good thing that it's so far away. Otherwise, I'd be asking if it was for sale. LOL.

    What's the 'good' rear end in a '73-74 Nova? The good Nova rear end was the 12 bolt that I believe stopped being put in them in '71.

    Judging by the impression in the "paint", I'd guess a Belair. I haven't talked to the people whose house the car is sitting at.

    Not everyone wants a 12 inch, the 8.5 is still pretty popular but getting harder to find.

    Here's some sitting and rotting, but will be coming to my place to sit and rot once the ground dries up a bit for me to pick them up.

  24. That 1929 Dodge Brothers DA6 sedan looks like a good prospect.

    You our west guys rock. In Florida, that would be nothing but some tires and head scratching. You don't find that stuff round here.

  27. I hope in the intervening 7 yrs someone has saved the '34 tudor and '35-6 2 door sedans![​IMG]

    found this thread and picking my way through a bit at a time ....I really need some follow up stories on some of these!!

    I don't "hate" guys who park old cars on THEIR land and forget about them, why shouldn't they? They should have every right and NOBODY god or government should be able to say different
    As much as I'd love to I don't hate junkyard owners either (except those who seemed to enjoy building them beside waterways:mad:)....they do it for the money and why shouldn't they? there is enough waste and abandonment in this world that we virtually NEED people to follow around after us and clean up our mess
    Without these two groups of people most of us wouldn't even have our classics, antiques, hot rods and customs!
    My one issue with the "hoarding" or saving of old cars is after about the 5 year mark of sitting isn't it then reasonable to rethink your plan and do something to preserve the car? ie: get it up off the ground, get that stupid tarp off it and put it UNDERNEATH, build a small shelter, or wire a piece of tin over it?? anything....
    I always think that of old buildings and abandoned houses too....a simple tin roof would have saved some of these beautiful old wooden building for not much effort or money....
    It's the savage neglect that gets under my skin
