"I came across this car sitting parked on the street in the Pacific Northwest. It's an original Plum Crazy 1970 R/T Charger, with what appears to be it's original 440 engine. Some of the original paint is still visible under the tattered vinyl top. I talked to a neighbor who said the car has sat on the street for years, and no one lives in the house where it's parked. It's sitting on old bias-ply tires that are dry-rotted. Funny thing is that the registration is current, probably to keep it from being towed. I was able to open the hood and get a couple shots of the engine as well as the fender tag. The car is badly rotted, including the hood and decklid. I was able to find contact information for the owner, and I plan to get in touch with them to see if I can buy the car."
It's not a VW, it's a Vette!
"Yesterday I took my 4-year old daughter Alexis to work with me, so we stopped on the way to get McDonald's. On the way, I looked left and saw what I thought was a VW bug. WRONG! It was a complete '62 Corvette sitting behind an old garage. The neighborhood is less than safe, so I decided it wouldn't be good to stop there when I had my young daughter in the car. I laid awake all last night, I was so excited to come back and get a closer look! I showed up at 8:00 AM, just as someone was pulling in. We visited for a few minutes before I asked about the old Vette. To my surprise, he said that the owners would be interested in selling! He also said that he wanted it out of his way and that it was a piece of junk! I agreed, LOL! I hope to own the car by next weekend, after the owners can be contacted."
