Texas Tri-Power Vette
"I found this gem about 40 minutes from my home on a country road. I left note about the car and actually went back the next day to try and catch the owner at home. He was an extremely nice guy that bought it in 1971. It still had the original 427/400HP Tri-Power automatic. He said he pulled the original block and put a 71 Vette 454 under the hood with 5:14 gears. It has been sitting like this for who knows how long, but the plates expired in 1982. The frame is broken right before the side exhaust and the birdcage is rusting away. It is literally falling in on itself. The doors won't open, but believe it or not it is all there except the original engine which he sold many years ago. Of course it is not for sale but he has my number just in case."

Tall Grass AMX
"Here are a couple pictures I took of a 1969 AMX I found. I stopped to look at a couple other cars, and when I pulled into the lot I happened to see the sun reflect off the emblem on the sail panel. The grass around it was so tall I wouldn't have seen it otherwise. According to the VIN, it's a 290 4 speed car. It had disc brakes, AM/FM radio, and Rally-Pac gauges. It looked like everything was still there and complete. I went back a while later to see if it was still there, and someone had thrown a car cover over it. A few months after that, it was gone."
Tijuana Grand Nat
"I found this ’86 Grand National in an old house in Tijuana, Mexico. The house and car were abandoned. I was able to get the car for 45 dollars US. Now I’m obviously very happy! Working on getting it back to good condition."
