Knoxville Barn Finds
"My son and I just bought a couple real 'Barn Finds' from our elderly neighbors. My neighbor had been saving these vehicles for his son to restore, but unfortunately his son had a heart attack and passed away at the age of 40 a few years ago. My neighbor was in the position that none of his family was interested in his mechanical pride and joy so he offered to sell them to my son and I in hopes of them being appreciated and restored. These two vehicles have been in a car-port/shed stored for 30 years, the plates are 1982 Tennessee plates. I got the '57 Chevy Wagon, too bad it's not a Nomad but it does have the 283 power pack with the original 4-barrel and high compression heads. My 15 year old son was able to buy the '46 Willys Jeep, this is the second year of civilian production. Both are very complete, and it was like opening a tomb in Egypt to get these out into the sunlight."

Dodge Superbee Save
"Hi, I’ve been trying to buy a 69 Dodge Superbee off a guy for 30 years, after a bunch of a** chewings, I finally talked him into selling it to me. This car has the old brown TN title, it’s a 1 owner car. All the #’s are matching on the car, motor, tranny. It even has the original build sheet, the original spare tire, and jack from the factory. The only thing not on it original is the battery. Thank God I went by there the day I finally got him to sell it, as I finally caught him in the mood to sell. It had been sitting in his yard since 1988 but it’s finally found a home for a VERY long time. It needs total restoration and is well on its way. I will send you more pics when the restoration is complete."
Argentinian GTX by Dodge
"Hi, I'm Matias, and I'm from Argentina. Here, cars like Mustangs, Camaros, and Corvettes are very difficult to acquire, most of us would die for these finds. Locally, I have found this Dodge GTX 318 V8 Mexicana abandoned. GTX was used as a Dodge model here. I would love to buy it and restore it if it were possible."
