Bare Cuda to Save
"I figured I would pass along some photos of this jewel sitting in a field outside of an abandoned house my area. This is one car I couldn't save! When I noticed it had been stripped, my heart sank. But upon looking at it closer, it's in surprisingly good shape. Despite being stripped and left for dead. I think it's saving grace was it was parked on a concrete pad, the floors have some rust, but it is still very restoreable. It appears to have been sublime green originally. I didn't look for the VIN or fender tag though, the property wasn't posted but I didn't want to touch anything as I didn't know the owner. I managed to track down the owner through property tax records. Same story as always, it's not for sale. I did ask the guy to keep me in mind if he ever changed his mind and was told that I am at the bottom of a long list. Too bad, I had cash in hand and this would have made a great project!

Buick GSX in the Bushes
"These pics show a truly sickening fate for this car. When it was parked, it was a presentable running and driving car. But you can see it's in bad shape now. The hood tach is missing, the motor is dissassembled, and much of the body is so rusted and pitted that many parts will need to be replaced. It's an original Buick GSX Stage 1 455 with an automatic. The owner has turned down numerous cash offers for the car, and it's been sitting for 15 years!"
Landcruisers on the Lawn
"Found these behind a trailer outside of Savannah, GA one day on a winding country road. Luckily the owner was a house away and after one knock on his door and $400 placed in his hand these came home with me. The FJ40 was built in Feb/1969, the FJ60 was a 1986 with a 4-speed. I'm hooked for life now crusing back roads and looking for rusting gold!"
