"I got word from a friend that he knew of an old Ford in a barn locally so I paid a visit to the ranch and found a 1966 Fastback Mustang that had been sitting for 20 years. It’s a 2+2 car, numbers matching everything with a 4-speed on the floor. It even still has the Ford tag on the carb. It’s a Texas car and has been here it’s whole life. The unique thing about this car is that unlike 95% of the cars out there, this one is actually for sale although I haven’t found the strength to jump on it yet. It’s a lot of work but to a 'blue oval' fan, I’m sure it would be worth it. I’m still in negotiations with the owner hoping he will come down just a tad so it will be worth hauling out and repairing."

Chrysler 300 Fin Find
"I saw this car 23 years ago when I was 7 years old, and I fell in love with the fins. I forgot about the car until a few months ago when it finally became mine. Here's the story. It's a '60 Chrysler 300 2-door hardtop with cross-ram intake. She was way back in a farmers yard when my dad and I went to see it when I was 7. He wouldn't sell it at the time. I forgot about the car until I saw an ad for someone selling a '69 Chrysler 300. I saw the fin in the background, and I went to see if I could buy the old '60. I went to his place, and begged him to sell me the other car. I told him I didn't have cash, but I would trade for anything I had. He ended up wanting my 2 Wayne gas pumps, and we made a deal."
From Chris in Canada
"These were my wifes grandfathers pickups. I have been trying to get them for a while. The green one was bought brand new by her great grandfather. They are a 1947 and 1948 International KB2. Both engines turn over and the original hand cranks are still in the pickups. They were in ND and now live in SD. Im now in the process of getting them running."
