    This is on the Minneapolis craigslist. Looks like it's been sitting for quite some time.

  5. 20180112_155454.jpg A few older images I have. Found this old Ford way out in a wooded area that I was told was once a junkyard. It had a 53/54 gauge cluster installed in/on the original dash and a banjo wheel still in it. This was the only car I came across but there were some old tires and stainless trim pieces sticking up from the ground in places. There was a 51 Ford front clip that was being eaten by a large tree not far from this hull.

    These were taken on private land a few years back. The guy had every car his parents and siblings had ever bought still on the property and would not let anyone look at them. When I was a kid my dad and I, along with one of his friends, were run off from here for stopping and asking about them lol. I got to know the guys younger brother who lived not far from the place and was able to get myself and a couple of buddies in to look. We were actually able to buy a few cars as well! Sadly, the gentleman died about a year after these pics were taken and everything was auctioned. The owner of the local scrap yard bought most of it including the blue 69 Chevelle. It went for $6500. I tried to buy it several times but the guy bought it new in the fall of 68 and he wanted to hang onto it. Factory 396, 4spd, SS. Its sitting up on blocks in that pic. You can't tell from the pic but it still had its stock "mags" on it with SS center caps, oval exhaust tips, and an 8 track inside with Credence Clearwater stuck in it lol.

    I never went to see it. Looks cool! Is it a 38? It looks complete. The front wheel in the one picture looks like the 1980's trailer rims some people liked.
    I just Google searched and it' a 37 olds.

    Sure looks like a 38 Caddy but the corporate twins concept has a long history.

    Yeah the one before it is a 35 or 6.
     
  24. ... so which car did he keep? ...
     
  25. The one before is a 36. I feel there will be a lot more finds like this with the aging population and cars stashed away in the 70's and 80's when they were still easy pickings. JW
