Default ROTTING MUSCLECARS

Since we are talking about missing musclecars how about ROTTING MUSCLECARS? This example a 1970 LT1 is rotting around the corner from me,the owner says he is going to fix it up,That was over 5 yrs ago when i asked him if he would want to sell it.He since filled the tires with air at least LOL

Maybe it is just me but I have found it has gotten worse since they started seeing the auctions on TV. At one time when you tried to go to the door and ask they would either let the dog out after you, scream no it is not for sale or not answer the door. Now I am finding most want to talk and tell you that car is worth 50,000 are you willing to pay me that if not get off my property.
This past summer I pushed a 70 chevelle SS body I have had for a while outside for maybe a month while I did some wiring in a new garage. Within a week it was so bad with people coming to the door my wife begged me to hurry up and put it back inside.
They seen one 70 go for over a million and think anything with a cowl hood is worth the same.

Not a mainstream musclecar, but a neighbor of my father has a 70 Mercury Cyclone with it's original 429 drivetrain. Tried to buy it a couple times years ago, but he never wanted to sell. A few years ago, he got so sick of people knocking on the door, he built a 3 stall garage and moved it inside. Sat outside for at least 20 years, so it is in pretty rough shape. It's all there though.

there is a local law here about cars without plates and green slime running down the back of your home; both strictly prohibited, as are clothes lines in the front yard.

the only rotting hulks I can see are pumpkins and squash.

I just came home from Long Island for the holidays. I took the train into New York one day, and from the train I saw quite a few nice 60s cars sitting rusting in tightly packed storage lots, and behind buildings. It really is sad. We don't have that type of thing very much up here in Maine, but one day I was out driving when I spotted this. 67 SS in code M royal plum paint and black bench seat interior. The house looked deserted so I decided to poke around a bit. Under the rotted hood sat the numbers matching engine, complete up to the air cleaner, and inside, all the four speed stuff is there up to even the original boot and knob. Only options were tinted windsheild and 4 speed. The plates were last registered in 84, and it is currently sitting on the crager rims, all 4 tires are rotted. The body is suprisingly great, with no rot in the doors, fenders of quarters, just the hood. I hate to see it sitting there uncovered!! I've knocked on the door everytime I go by, but nobodys ever there, so maybe I should check with the town office on the status of the place. Until than, it will sit through the rain and snow. I don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon, unless that anywhere is in my garage!
See the attatchment
