barn finds, field finds, garage finds
my first gto i bought 3 weeks ago. i got phs first. in a garage for 8 years. the high school grad it was given to. stalled it , started up and engaged the starter in gear. it quit runnning , they parked it. this is the most i ever paid for a nonrunning car. 5k. when we pushed out of the garage we were turning the engine over ???? i had to get in the car and dpress the clutch so we could get it on/off the flatbed. battery from k 5 blazer, oil change , $15 fresh gas, install passanger plug wires correctly, new plugs. i had to drop the starter and remove 3 broken flwheel teeth. it fired up on the third crank. i put new front and rear windshiled seals in, carpet and passanger seat cover, mice ate it and part of the headliner. when i read how much some of these guys are able to pay for rusting hulks or completely dead machines, i realize i did good, all of my second guessing myself is gone. anybody else have a barn find or old garge sale find?
