Boomerang Javelin SST
"This '71 Javelin SST is sitting behind a friend's house, along with a lot of other yard art. He first acquired the car years ago when he saved it from the crusher. Since then, he's sold it and bought it back twice. It's a real deal 304 SST, all original and numbers matching. Of course, he's keeping it because he 'wants to restore it someday'."
"This a Chevelle I found in Eastern Nebraska back in 2001. A co-worker had it on his farm. The Chevelle had sat there since the mid 80's . The owner was planning on using the frame to move his SS Chevelle body to the body shop. I did end up buying the Chevelle body recently with the intention of acquiring the frame within the next year. I moved the body to my house this last month. I've been trying to get it for years, and I'm getting closer!"
Mustang Freebie Finds
"I was after this fastback Mustang for years as a kid. I left notes regularly over the last 20 years. The house burned down and the owner passed away. I kept stopping and leaving notes on the cars saying I was interested in saving themand restoring them. Finally the old man's widow called and said, "Drag them away please!" The fastback and the ragtop, for FREE! Both are very rotted, but stil I'm happy to have them. Just a reminder that persistence pays off! Keep leaving notes and keep following up on all the cars you find out there. Someday it might pay off!"
