Stacks of Mopars
"A guy in downtown Phoenix has a machine shop and an ENTIRE yard of Mopars. The ones you can SEE are a 70 Cuda, 71 Challenger, 69 Coronet/Superbee, and a 69-70 roadrunner CONVERTIBLE. Talked to a neighboring business and the owner has been next to this guy since 1996 and has talked to him ONCE. Was told it's a VERY private/secretive family and probably not to bother them as rumor has it there is a shooting range dug beneath the property. Also there are numerous trailers/storage containers these cars are on top of that supposedly have treasures in them. Sad."

6.3L Barn Mercedes
"I have been trying to buy this car for a few months now, and I've wanted it since I was 3 when I first saw it (I'm 19 now). It's in a barn that's falling down on a driveway that you have to take to get to my aunt's cottage. This is a very rare car, one of only 6500 built between 1968 and 1972. The 6.3 litre engine that's in it was originally made for the 600 series limousine, but with only about 1500 of those being built, Mercedes decided to put that huge engine in a mid-sized car just for fun. I spoke to the owner, who is a hoarder, and he flat out refuses to sell and says he's going to restore it. I told him that the barn is going to fall down on it before the end of the year (I mean look at it!) but he thinks it won't. I also spoke to the guy who owned the car before the hoarder because I found the registration papers still in the glove box and the story goes like this. Nick, who was a military helicopter pilot and was stationed in Germany when he decided to buy this car to haul his Airstream trailer, he imported it to Canada and used it for years, then Peter, the present owner, started a charter helicopter company and hired Nick as a pilot. Then, in 1991, Nick's Airstream trailer, which was being kept in a hangar was damaged beyond repair so the company bought it from him. Nick, no longer having his Airstream trailer to pull with his car, decided to sell it to his boss, Peter, who has been bugging him for some time about buying it. Peter never even registered the car in his own name and it has been in that barn since 1991. The last picture is of the side of the barn so that you can see how bad it is. I really want to save this rare car."
From Andrew in Nova Scotia
"This Hudson was found in a grove of Hudsons in Indiana. My son and I bought it from the old man that owned it. We are currently restoring it. The car originally came from Kansas, maybe the Tin Man owned it. I am having a lot of fun working with my son Kyle on this project. Another one saved, keep looking!"
