    "Never seen snow or rain"; In Syracuse, unlikely.

    I think the survival rate is a lot higher than previously thought. We have seen a bunch of these showing up out of the blue just like this one.

    Back in 2013-2014, several previously "unknown" 1970 Polara 'verts similarly emerged. For the next 2-3 years, though, not a single such car emerged that was not previously known. Then this fall three popped up this fall (green, orange, and now blue), which were new to folks on this board -- including to Dave (aka @polara71 aka the world's foremost authority on '70-'71 Polara's).

    So, new pattern this year? I am not sure. The optimist in me figures that, as the folks who bought their cars in the 1970's or early 1980's (not new, but as second or third owners) start re-evaluating their material holdings, a number of cars may be seen for the first time in years. Pessimists would say that, the more one waits, the worse the shape those ragtops will be in. I'd say that the last 3 cars discovered show reasons for both optimism and pessimism.

    $8000 seems like a fair price, but a tough time of year to sell a convertible. Like the color

    Not sure how you can disagree with that statement Bob but you're entitled to hit the red X

    I just think these cars were special and more than 100 survived. Just look at the number of unknown cars that popped up on our forum.

    The 100 number came from a guy that restored his in the early 90s. Not sure how he came upon it or if he simply took a stab at it ( a presumption he made)
    Convertibles tend to have a higher survival rate. Though they rust out easier many original owners bought them as a 2nd and most had garages, the pampered car life. Even at that so many rusted out , wore out or were parted out.( no news here)

    Of the 115 or so we've located just more than half are road worthy.
    Finding 3 unknown cars within a two month span hasn't happened yet.

    Don't get me wrong, I doubted the 100 number also (15 years ago) but until I get there I'm not holding my breath.
