Cuda Under Wraps
"Here's the 'Cuda. It's not for sale of course, I've been trying for years. I remember it driving around town before I got my license. I'm 40 now, it's in a Massachusetts field. Original yellow 383. It had roadlights and a Go-Wing. Now it's just rotting into the dirt."
"I have been a fan of CarsinBarns.com for a long time! I thought I'd send in some photos of a car that my father and I found in 2001. We were trying to find a project car, and an old fastback torino that we'd known about for years came into mind. We took a trip, and the owner let us walk through his private junkyard to take a look. It turned out to be a 1968 Torino GT fastback. It was in rough shape (as you can tell from the photos) but it looked like a good project. It had been sitting for 17 years, and parked in the woods after it ran into a tree. There was no motor and almost no trim. The owner told us that he would part with it for $50! WHAT A DEAL! We couldn't pass it up for that price, so we borrowed a tow truck and haulled it home. I'm 16 now, and have done most the work myself, and now I'm in the process of fixing the floor pans. I have been scouring craigslist and backwoods junkyards for parts. Still doesnt run, havent got enough money for a new motor yet. Its a happy ending for another poor old Ford that would have otherwise rotted away."
Starting a Collection
"I am almost 17 and found a gem sitting behind a practically abandoned building in my Hometown. The building had a for rent sign in it and I noticed their was what looked to be a 67 impala 4dr and a bunch of other cars behind the building. So I called the # in the window and asked the guy what was back there. He told me he had a bunch of old "junk" and mentioned a 65 Impala SS and that he wanted $700 for it. After 2 yrs I talked him into selling it to me for $200 minus the 327 and powerglide. Original 327 4brl, power pack, buckets, console, TRUE SS with clear title, AC, PS, PB...etc. The car was last registerd in Wisconsin in 1985. The car was a good 8 inches in the earth, with flat tires, stuck brakes, and wheels turned to the left with NO steering column. On top of all of that, the guy said we had 30 minutes to load the car because he had a business to run. My father collects antique cars and owns about 90 of them so he didn't mind me bringing a 'junker' home, lol."
