Route 66 Dust Bowl relics
On a vacation drive accross the U.S., I found lots of cool old cars sitting
in fields. These I found abandoned off the old mother road, 66. Could they
be old broken down, old dust bowl depression era cars? California or bust?
that busted? Like the jalopy the Joed's drove in the movie "The Grapes of
Rath"? Unbelieveable what is still out there... waiting to be found when
you goof up and take a wrong turn off the beaten path in a small town along
Route 66. I once got lost in Colorado and found a 57 Chevy convertible, and
it was cheap so I bought it.
Will it Run? Bonus: Live Sounds of Dead Cars
I had a request for some live engine sounds with no music...This is the
same Dodge 230 c.i. flat head 6 chassis running with 2 different bodies on
it. Actually runs pretty good, considering it's been sitting since the
60's, and is still running its original plugs, wires, cap, etc. Thanks for
checking it out.

Captain Right-time-right-place, strikes again! I was just out riding my
bike when I saw this black Challenger on the back of a flat-bed truck. The
owner was closing the gate and just about to set off when I leaped off my
bike & pulled my camera out.
It turns out he didn't just have one sweet Mopar (which happened to have a
426 Hemi) he had A GARAGE FULL OF THEM. It was all a bit of a blur and I
was still puffing from having been riding, and then being gob-smacked, and
then non-stop asking questions.
I wasn't able to catch the whole story but it seems the Brisbane City
(Australia) government had Assumed (confiscated/commandeered) his land and
had to remove all of his possessions with in 30 days or lose it. Had he not
done so, all would have been scrapped. If that had happened his only course
of action would've been to sue the government to reclaim damages.
That would really have sucked because the cash wouldn't have brought them
