    man, I haven't cried in years...but those photos and the thought that some TIThead is 'going to restore them someday' got me a bit teared up. How pitiful

    Is that the same yard Brigrat posted about, a while back. I believe it was stated that the owner is not friendly to strangers who stop by and inquire. I'm not sure if he is willing to let anything go. By the looks of it, I'd say, not so much.
    Just too much to wrap your head around.

    Is owner's name Bruce?
    Might be the same place. He said he had THREE yards. Yes I said THREE!

    Found these links...

    If you guys want to buy stuff like this, you gotta take the right approach.

    First, drive up in a Model A Ford that you have been driving thru several states for about 14 years.
    Works for me
     
  16. Big deal. So the guy has a few cars. Don't we all? ;)
