Charger Mopar Memory
"I found this one while looking for a repair shop. I believe it to be a ’73 charger. The owner of the shop said it was his grandfathers. He brought it to his shop when the engine slung a rod with plans to repair it but with working 12 hrs a day, 6 days a week he never found time. The shop has been passed down granddad to son to grandson and the grandson said it is just kept as a reminder to leave time for yourself and family and don’t live at work."
Texas Trans Am Rescue
"I ran across this 1979 Trans Am still in the hands of the original owner who had it up on jack stands in his garage. He had received the car as a high school graduation gift. As time went on, the car sat outside for many years not being driven. Finally he decided to bring it inside for better storage. It sat in the garage for a decade before I came across it. I was able to get him to sell me the car and I brought it home. I put a battery in it and cranked it over to check oil pressure and it had about 30 pounds during cranking. I poured some gas into the carb to fill the float bowl, turned the key and it came to life, starting and idling like it had never been stored!"

Impala SS Barn Save
"I found this car in a barn in the middle of the upper class neighborhoods in Kansas. Overland Park to be exact. The man who owned the car went to Israel. He liked it so well he decided to stay. His father-in-law had to clean out his house and property so he could sell the house. This car was in a barn behind the house, they termed it into a garage, but it was a barn. He had tried for months to sell the car with no luck. I picked it up for three hundred dollars, and had it running in four days. The numbers matching 327 with the 400 turbo works fine."
