    welp its back to basics for me...that means good friends and neat cars and gawd knows theres alotta them around Calgary...seeing as my 70 Fury 3 is off to Austrailia via Alaska and South America needed another fun driver so started looking a cpl weeks ago...
    timeing was off for the one out east and Tobias scored the one up in Edmonton but he knew of one sitting stripped with bodywork done in Brooks that he didn't have time for so he shot me the guys no and l contacted him....

    Stranger than fiction...

    Welp turns out the car was available and the fella l was chatting with was the same fella l had been converseing with about a green GT here in Alberta at the same time l had bought my 71 GT abought 4-5 years ago,,,
    Turns out the car was a missing B5 70 GT mentioned in the forums here and had been awol for some 19 years and was found sitting across from a A&W drive through for the last 5 years..
    in anycase was good thing l got it when l did as there were inquiries about it last week...
    Car is originally from Utah and was delivered Oct 69 to a leaseing Company in Salt lake City l believe...…..
    For whatever reason car lost its engine and tranny along the way...being a lease vehicle could be someone drove the crap outa it and blew engine and they sold it...
    Car shows as 46,000+ miles and is listed as 46k on transfer papers ect in 96 and has been missing its drivetrain ever since then so with it having only 46,000 and being a Utah car explains the great condition the undercarriage and body was in...
    To make a long story weirder and shorter Dan Corley ended up with the car in Washington and sold it to last owner 18-19 years ago at which point car was brought back to Brooks Alberta...bodywork was done on it and has been sitting the last 4-5 years in primer collecting dust and sand....
    As happens with alotta folks reality and life set in and car was put on back burner and eventually found by Tobias who passed the info on to me and here were are...
    one 1970 Sport Fury B5 GT...thanx Tobias

    So I go away for a few weeks and you sell your truck and your Fury?? I am guessing @Tobias74 has an engine/tranny lead for you already. Don’t think your workspace has room for an engine hoist ...or did you move while I was away?

    Was the beer yours or the cat's? Looks like the cat really liked the car, I would have took it home too.

    Great story and a great find - Tobias knows where all the good stuff is up there, and I like that he decided to give you the lead - very wise. I can't think of anyone else better suited to whom that car should have gone. Now you will have a 70 model to join your 71.
    I didn't realize at first all the plusses of that car and the story and photos showing the very likely low miles and condition of the car make the picture complete. I don't know if that one will also go to Paul or not (like Stan, inquiring minds want to know), but I am sure you will do good things with it. That is just the way you are, as we have seen in the past with your professional work as well. Great attention to detail from what I have seen. But now you have some more time to do the things you really like, and that is healthy.

    I am also sure you will keep us posted on your progress, and I will look forward to every installment on the way to your destination.

    I would also love to see some really original and nice looking door pulls on that beauty soon too Derek! :poke:
    You know for sure you will have at least one buyer for quite a few of those! :thumbsup:
