    I`m on Leave and just hang`n out with my Mom and Dad. And I ask
    Me: Hey you know where I can get a set of beltline trim from a `53 Pontiac?
    Dad: Sure, I got an ol`buddy that might have a few cars run`n around his place.
    Me: Cool can we go check it out?
    Dad: No problem let me just give him a call.

    So we head out and as soon as we hit the property the first words out my mouth was "HOLY SHIT THIS GUY IS LOADED" (Dad just laughed)

    He had the parts I needed and then some he even let me take a few pictures.
    The funny thing was he wouldn`t sell the lawn mower...go figure

    He keeps the one's he used to drive up on blocks, and a few of them still run. Maybe next time I will have to talk him into letting me into the barn
