a moment of silence

Found this picture on the interweb thing, what a shame that people let this kind of crap happen. It was a 69 Judge.

Termited. Kaputt. But SAVEABLE. Reminds me of the '66 GTO convertible that was made into a fence that I saw in 1981. 4 speed car. Another one :in Berkeley, CA, back in the '70's and early '80's there was a GTO we all called the Flower Goat. It was a pink '68 convertible with hideaways that the hippie lady owner had filled to the tops of the doors with dirt and had flowers growing at all times. The car didn't have a dent in it. It was a ten year old car that she turned into a planter. Even then, when nice '68 GTO ragtops could be had for $1200 or so, it was recognized as a tragedy.

I don't see a frame. I only drag home cars with frames, even if the frame is bolted together from 7 pieces...

I bet the land owner won't sell it either because "someday I'm gonna restore it"....

so many cars that were wanted have died a slow agonizing death from that "someday" syndrome....

I agree, Instg8ter. Well-meaning but unrealistic people tear a car apart down to the waterline to "restore" it, and it ends up as scrap. This happens in every city, town, and hamlet all over the country, and probably the world. That's why I always say RESTORE THEM AS YOU DRIVE THEM if you're a beginner. That way, you don't "lose interest". hard to get passionate about a pile of rusty parts behind the barn. Easy to get exited about the '65 GTO with the rusty quarter panels and falling down headliner that you are burning rubber in on your way to NAPA for more stuff!!!

If the vin tag and data plate is gone, it's not a judge anymore.. Still a shame.

Burning rubber since 1982!!
