1970 Barracuda Bargain
"I found this 1970 Barracuda and was able to buy it for $500! I'm saving this classic from the scrap yard and doing a full restoration to put it back on the road!"

1965 Impala SS "Rag" Top
"A 1965 Impala SS Convertible. I couldn't see it from the road until it turned to autumn, then I had to investigate. It's a 327 car with a four speed and posi rear end. The car looks like it's been sitting for a while with the top shredded, but suprisingly the interior is still pretty good and seems to have everything intact. The engine is unmolested except for an aftermarket air cleaner. It sits behind an abandoned house, and so far I can't locate the owner to get info on the car. "

1964 Corvette in Pieces
"Hi Steve, here are some photos of a 1964 numbers matching Corvette with the 300HP 327 and 4-speed transmission. The car belongs to a friend who owns a body shop. I've known him for 25 years, and it's been in this condition since day one. It was his first car. Shortly after I met him we were discussing when it would be restored. This turned into a bet (for a case of beer) that it would be ready for his young daughter (I think she was around 12) to take her driving test. Then it was a bet that it would be ready for his son. Then his grandkids. When I stopped in to take these pics (and tell him where they were going) he said, 'That's the last car I'm going to paint, when you see me working on that, I'm retired.' It was all there when it was disassembled, and most of it is still somewhere around the shop. The engine parts are under a bench. It's amazing how the dust accumulation preserves the details of the shape of the parts even though the dust is thicker than the bumps and grooves."
