Thumpen...I totally agree...that's my favorite part of classic cars is finding the "forgotten" treasures...I found my 65 Falcon Convertible sitting behind a pile of race car parts when me and a friend went to drop off a motor he built for the guy. Paid $1500 cause the guy said it didn't run and it wasn't worth it to him to figure out what was wrong. Ended up who ever rebuild the engine last didn't stake the bolts on a connecting rod and it came off the crank. No damage to the block, crank or rod, just needed new bolts and proper installation. Found my 67 Mustang Coupe on the side of a house behind a old camper. Kid went off to college and left the car on the street. It racked up $2700 in parking tickets and the kid couldn't pay them. All I had to do was go pay his parking tickets and he signed the title over to me. Needed new paint, suspension, tires and brakes but otherwise was in pretty good condition. The GTO is the best though. Driving in the foothills of a retirement town in Arizona. A guy was putting a "for sale" sign in the window that simply said "1967 Pontiac $7500 obo" hit the brakes, checked the VIN and wrote the check on the spot. Ended up the guy loaned a friend $7500 to help pay for his wife's funeral and gave the car as collateral. The original owner died before he could pay back the money and he only wanted the money he loaned. The man that I bought it from was not a car enthusiast and didn't care to be. Car was bought and paid for in Tucson, Arizona and delivered to Yuma. 96,000 original miles with factory A/C and all the documents were still there, guy even kept a maintenance log. Unfortunately it had been in an accident at one point and the the repair job was less then ideal. Frame was not the correct year and it had the wrong rear axel. The passenger door was off a tempest too, the door panel they didn't change was the first clue. The hood was a tempest or lemans too.
