Not for those with a weak stomach...

I was helping move my brother from his house after his latest break-up (psycho-magnet). We had the u-haul packed and were driving to the back of the storage area and i was scooping out the cars....what do i see facing me but GTO, in the very last row......had to stop on the way out and snap a pic for you guys. typical "I won't sell it, I am gonna restore it someday" car, what a shame!!!!

I know what you mean when they say I'll fix it one day. Those people piss me off!!!!.. Theres a 69 GTO all original 2 miles from me, half rusted a doesn't want to get rid of it. Theres also 69 fastback still in good shape just a little surface rust, sitting out in the weather and doesn't want to sell either. I know the location of two 68 Challengers and other collectables but nobody wats to sell. I had to drive 11 hrs away to Texas to get my 67 Lemans and 80 Corvette. It wasn't a bad buy at 4500. for both cars. I feel like going off on these people. If you haven't fixed it in 10 years you never will!!!!!!!!!!!

Rust in peace great Warrior .

That should be criminal, I sentence you to 100,000 miles in a Smart Car with dead shocks and running on 3 cylinders.





^ ya, 68 Challengers are super rare lol.



Gone....but not forgotten....

I agree it's a crime. These people smugly sit on their "treasure", talk about what it's "worth", while it rots away into oblivion. Then the people who own the car(s) die, and the stuff goes to the scrapper the next day. These "I'll restore it someday" folks are DELUSIONAL.
