    OK this my first thread so I thought it should be light. Anyone have plans for their car once there gone? I’ve heard people say they want it buried with them but never heard of it really being done. I want my car to keep runnin’ the road with me in it. I want my ashes put in the Moon tank on front. It’s willed to my daughter who is 30 and been driving a 64 satin black leopard flamed Caddy for the last 5 years. McPhail already labeled the tank so all she has to do is melt me down and pour me in. I hope she is eligible for AARP before she gets the coupe but who knows? She knows I’m serious and asked “but dad what if I run into someone and you go everywhere?” I told her I hope she’s not hurt and it will be OK cause I always wanted to go everywhere. :D Let’s hear what you want for your car when you are gone…

    I doubt I have my current car then. Whatever I do have I imagine one of my kids will get it or the wife will sell it to remodel the kitchen.

    Either way it affects me none.

    interesting question, two years after a friend died they're still trying to figure out what to do with his cars!

    I really don't care, but I expect my relatives/friends will.

    Yeah, family and friends mean the most to me but of what belongs to me the scooters and cars that I have built are what I have a say over. The point is you need to say something to someone now cause who knows when it'll be too lat to stop all those arguments.

    Good question, my wife said IT's WORTH HOW MUCH when I told her what I wanted to insure it for. I can see a BMW (puke) in her future. I do hope however, that my 15 year old daughter keeps it.

    I heard a great one at a swap meet the guy said when he dies, he wanted to be creamated and mixed in with a gallon of bondo and spread on his 51 ford so he could drive around with it after he`s gone

    Once I'm gone it don't matter, it won't affect me. I just inherited my late uncle's 63' Buick Riviera, I'll prolly pass em on to a deserving family member.
  12. Haha. Thats pretty good:D I don't think I'd want to know.It would probably piss me off no matter where they ended up.

    Well luckily my 15 year old daughter is really interested in the car so she gets it. Actually asks me plenty of questions about the whole scene so I think she's a good 'un!
    By the way Bad....How will your daughter get new front tyres for yours once she wears them out? Have to get my daughter to send some over from the U.K! (Now there's a pretty cryptic comment.....)

    I bought some cars from an old lady once whose husband had died and she couldn't part with them.They had sat there some 15 years and kids had broken in to the old building,stole the keys,smashed some windows,plus the roof leaked.The cars were a mess,what a shame.I have titles to each of my cars in a folder with what $ I think they are worth,which I update from time to time.My wife knows to sell the cars after I wake up on the wrong side of the grass.

    My wife says she will keep them ... :)

    A fellow co - worker/friend and I were talking about this a few years back and he said " I am not much into dating white women ... but with a couple 32 Fords as a dowery ... your wife would be a real catch " He was a African/American and a real car nut.

    Sadly, while he was 10 years younger than I , he was buried about 6 weeks ago ... heart attack :(

    MAYBE a HAMBer will keep the Deuces running for her :)

    Mine will be a future barn find for somebody. We figure that a two day auction will get rid of all of the "stuff" and proceeds to local charities.
  25. I had to think about this recently when my wife and I made a trust. All of my old cars are now in the trust which would be left to either my wife or my two boys if both of us were gone. My wife says she would keep them for the boys, but what they do with them is up to them. As much as I have lived/breathed cars for most of my life, they are just cars what happens to them after I am gone is not much concern to me. Although, I do hope my boys want to keep them.

    My cars are a big part of my life, but they are just cars. When I'm gone, what I hope my kids will do is sell them to the highest bidder so that my family can enjoy things that they love, like I loved these machines.

    But I don't expect that they have to maintain these vehicles as some sort of legacy. That's an unfair burden to anyone who doesn't love the hobby like I do.

    I hope whoever gets Big Olds next, whether by me selling him or dieing, will continue to drive the snot outta him. It's what he deserves.

    I also hope when folks see him years from now they walk up to the driver and ask "Hey, is that HRLC's old car, the one she called "Big Olds'? Whatever happened to her??":D
  29. I told my wife to sell the Buick for as much as she can get and take the grandkids on a cruise. But my grandson and his Dad said no just keep it in the family, and that was what I wanted to hear anyway. After your gone who cares, your in a better place....... well maybe. Rags

    You remember that scene in The Karate Kid where Mr Meagee [sp]
    tells the kid to pic out a car for his own. There's several lined up to choose from. That's what I want my family to do. Just pick one, and drive the wheels off of it. But never sell it. I'd give anything to have a car that my dad drove when he was young. I would not care what it was.
