Javelin Auction Save
"Hi Steve, love the website! After reading the stories, I decided to send some pics of my Javelin. It was in a barn in Missouri, unlicensed for 15 years. The older gentleman that owned it also owned around 250 other classic and rare cars. His family talked him into selling the whole lot at auction in Nevada, Missouri. He was 89 years old and they didn't want to mess with the burden after he was gone. My 72 AMC Javelin SST wasn't running when I bought it at the auction, we pulled it up on the trailer and off it went to a friends shop. With a lot of good wrench turning and some $$$$$. The old 258 straight 6 cyl was running. It smoked, but I drove it for a year until the engine swap. It now has a Dodge 360 bored 30 over and cammed. I got the body work and paint completed a couple months ago."

Trans Am Finally Found
"I've been a reader for years now and FINALLY made a find of my own! I've known about this car for 3 or 4 years, but never knew the location of it. I went for a drive and had my 'Trans Am Eyes On', and I found this gem sitting in the leaves. As a HUGE Poncho fan i had to have it! I was told by the original owner, it's been there for 20+ years. All original '78 Y88 4 Speed WS6 car with 32 thousand miles on the ODO! I was told the car was for sale, and had cash on me then. I gave them an offer and they wanted to think about it. I got a phone call later in the week saying they wanted to keep the car and restore it later in life. I'm not giving up on this find, It'll be home SOONER or later. Keep looking for cars guys! They're out there!!!"

Impressive Impala SS 427
"I found this worn out 1968 Impala SS427 in a field in Texas (it was beside a barn). The original 385hp 427 still runs great! This car was sitting since 1973 and has about 70,000 miles, original paint, factory AC, buckets, console, TH400, 12 bolt, 8-track but the surprise is the manual drum brakes!! We call it 'ED' because it still had the factory assembly code paper tag on the master cylinder and yes - the code is 'ED'."
