Super Bee Save
"I have known the people who owned this car for nearly 4 years when I heard the wife say something about a Super Bee in the barn. I went back to her shortly after when no one was around and asked about it. She told me her husband had a Super Bee in their barn, but did not know what year. I asked her if I could take a look at it and she said yes, but her husband would most likely not sell it. His mother had bought it brand new and it had a lot of sentimental value to him. I had no idea it was there!!! The next weekend, I went and looked at it and sure enough, there was a real, original paint 1969 Dodge Super Bee tucked tightly into the shed. It had the 383 with the black bucket seat interior and the console automatic, A/C, tic toc tach, power steering, power brakes, fender mounted turn signal indicators and that was about it. It had been sitting in the tiny tin shed for over 25 years and was full of rat droppings. It had been fairly well protected from the weather, but the tin roof was starting to come loose so it wasn't going to be too much longer before it was completely exposed to the elements. The husband and wife soon went on vacation and per our plan, she started to work on him regarding selling the car. Upon return from vacation, she suggested I call him and he would may consider selling the car. I called later that day and we were able to work out a deal. They are still out there so keep looking!"

High Cost Camaro
"Attached are some photos of a 1969 Camaro on Johns Island, SC which is near Charleston, SC. I have been driving past this car for the last 7 years and finally stopped to ask about it. The hood has always been up. As you can see the salt air is taking its toll on this car. According to the cowl and VIN tags this is a Hugger Orange X66 Base SS396 car with manual transmission, standard ivory interior and black vinyl top. No doubt the real deal. Unfortunately no engine or transmission. The car sits on the owners rental property. The lady in the yard was very friendly and told me where to find the owner. After driving over to his house I spoke with him face to face. He confirmed the original engine and transmission were long gone. He said I could have it for $12,000 and for $18,000 he would give me an L88 and muncie 4 speed to go in it. The lady in the yard said at least he gave me a price, because he hasn't given anyone else a price. I'm afraid this one will sit here and continue to rot."

Mustang GT Convertible Covered
"I just found this 1966 mustang GT convertible last week and purchased it the following day. It's a complete, original GT, running and driving car, needing restoration. And I found it only a few miles from my home. A rare find indeed. Just wanted to post to let everyone know 'they are still out there,' and not everyone knows what they have! I did not think that's possible in 2012. Not in a barn, but in the garage, and with current tags."
