At least the yellow one is inside.
It's hard to tell why people hang on to things so long that they become almost worthless. Hope, belief they can get to it one day? It may sentimental and represent something to someone that can't be replaced with a wad of cash, sadly. Or, Spite. Whatever, Its painful for us to watch.

Sentimental value. I just bought a 77 Special Edition that the original owner parked after driving for under ten years. Put it in the back yard and was going to fix it up someday. Only reason I got it was that the owner sold the property. My friend made him an offer a year prior only to be refused, I paid less.

So many stories like this where people have an emotional attachment by which they are reminded when they see their old hot rods sitting.

Besides Canada built/imported car info, GM Canada Vintage Services also has paperwork for most USA produced/sold vehicles from 1977 on...

Whitetop,

Would you give me the location on this car? I would really like to go see it and see if it is my original Yenko. I am in Ohio, so traveling for something like this would be amazing.

Thanks,
Gary Merrick

Wouldn't that be something! Check out the two curious holes in the rear valance next to the bowtie.
