Always sad to see.....
#1
My wife found this on the internet. It appears to be a Gold Glow car. I always hate it when people do that. It sadly is all too common.

It is inexcusable for scientists to torture animals; let them make their experiments on journalists and politicians.

I like checking out that site. I found another like it that had a car that looked like the one i came home in as a newborn in 73 in WV where the car last was but never got a response where it was exactly.

check out the door jambs. They look like Green Gold Metallic, which was the color of Dad's first car.

That is a waste. Too bad someone can't talk him into selling.

All to often people hold on to them for sentimental reasons, others have unreasonable expectations of the car's value because it's an "antique" and they feel people are trying to steal it with low ball offers so they let the "antique" sit and rust.

That's probably how my 71 looked like before the previous owner got it from his buddy and eventually sold it to me. Poor thing was sitting in the fields as a rotting sacrifice to the rust gods. Sad

I'm guilty,My Mach 1 sat around 13 plus years before I started to restore it. I at least would start it up now and then. 2 or 3 times a year I would give it a bath and drive it around the block,then back to yard art it would go.

My cat would always hang out on it.

I bought my car from my wifes couson, he always used to say "Its a 70's car it an't going to be worth anything" and it sat in his front yard for a few years.
now every time I go to a car show and get a trophy he says "who ever voted for that car does'nt know classics" !!!!

No car should sit and Rot away!!!
