The Convertible Goat and the Llama
"I was working on a farm in Nebraska where I was getting a vacant farm house ready to sell. Having a beer after finishing one day, I decided to check out the barn. I was pleasently surprised that I found a 1970 GTO convertible. So after I left the farm, thoughts ran through my mind of getting the car instead of money for the work I did. But after talking to the owner of the farm, I found out the car belonged to a friend of the family and wasn't for sale. But I got some cool pictures. The motor was a 330 horse 400 with auto and 90K on the clock. Because the car was locked, I couldn’t sit on the red bucket seats, but options I did see were tilt, AC, AM/FM radio, and floor mats. The car looked like it'd been there a long time, it had a parking sticker dated 1982 on the front window. As I left, I took a photo of the llama outside the barn, as if he was guarding the goat nearby."
"I found this '71 Mercury Comet rotting in the woods in Kentucky. It's a rare power delete car. Originally a 302/automatic. Luxury decor optioned exterior, deluxe trim interior, Meduim Blue Metallic with Black vinyl top. The car was purchased from Litton Family Ford in Flemingsburg, KY in December 1970. I found the original window sticker, pre-delivery checklist, original owner's cards, original owner's manual and purchase receipt in the car along with the title. It is missing the engine, transmission and fuel tank. I bought it just for parts, but now it sits under a cover waiting to be brought back to life. I'd sell it if anyone was interested."
Vermont Road Runner
"I found this car in upper Vermont sitting in a field. The owner wanted the car off the property, and I hauled it home. After looking it over, I discovered it was in fact a real U code GTX 440 4-speed."
