Nice cars sitting in the weeds
nice) old cars sitting out in a field or back
yard, and have an urge to rescue? (Isell, I'll
count you in automatically).
At a house around the corner from me (down the
street from the Nomad and Model A guys, for those
of you keeping up with my recent posts in other
topics), there is a large supply of cars I like in
poor shape. For the 3 years I lived here, there
was an early 70's Chevelle SS sitting in the back
yard, behind a pool with no water (the house was
missing a bunch of shingle until recently just to
add ambiance). The SS needed a paint job, but
looked OK otherwise. they also had some rust bomb
Blazers and a mid 70's Corvette. A few months ago,
a '75 Trans Am (really ratty looking) showed up,
parked in front of the SS (even had a rag jammed in
the space where the shaker hood should be).
Anyway, a few weeks ago the SS disappeared, and the
Corvette took its place fo honor in the backyard.
My point (since I really should have one) is this:
Do any of you have inersting cases of cars as
lawn ornaments to share? And have you ever
actually approached a stranger about buying one of
them (or to berate them for letting a nice
potential classic go to rot)?
