    Sad and cool at the same time.

    Mindshark, I think you are spot on. My Dad's uncle had an old time gas station/general store across the road from our place. He was a hoarder and held on to lots of brand new really old stuff. Pickers would've gone nuts there. When he closed it, he just closed it, and it remained nearly untouched for decades. Also had several very old cars in good original condition, including a Ford Model T. When he died his son moved in to his place and kept it all pretty much the same. He died just recently and shortly after he did, his wife had a big auction and sold all they could. Then the bon fires started....and are still going on with some regularly a year later...

    I don't get why you'd get beat up over the Rambler pics. Nothing you can do or say about where, why or how.....

    That just bolsters my point. It's like Chevrolet did not exist before the small block.
    Chevrolet people are strange breed.

    It's a '53 or a '54.

    Man that chaps my ass. I know it's the dude's right to do what he wants, but just letting those things sit there when so many of us would be willing to buy/restore them. Ugh...frustrating. Like rescue dogs, give those puppies a new home! Someone who'll take care of them!
