Old Car Project Hunting, And I Found A GEM.
A hole was burning in my pocket so one day a friend and I went out to find a project. We started at a salvage yard called “Martins” between Greeley and Loveland Colorado on Hwy 34, and later ended up at Georges. Our path lead us to a lot of potential projects, but none as savory as the Auburn. Of coarse, how do you walk up to a stranger and ask to buy a car he has had since the early sixties, Is a full classic, has been gathering hard to find parts for years, and he just doesn't want to sell? Well we sure did enjoy meeting George and looking at his 1932 Auburn.
