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 250 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.
cars to no cars
After reading the comments, I decided an explanation is needed. These cars were on an abandoned farm 750 miles away. County threatened to have property condemned and charge us to remove. A (former) family member hired a lawyer to get control of property from remaining heirs. Our only solution was hire a lawyer ourselves and to sell as scrap and split the money. And as for selling on internet, when this started, Craig's list was not the thing it is today. I did have cars on line for 2 years, not a single call. Where were all you "car value experts"? Sad to see some of them go, especially the Ford pickups. All cars were rotted out underneath. None of them ran and few had titles. Half of the experts identified the cars incorrectly. No convertibles, ElCominos, 55 Chevys, or 442s. Studebaker pickup was a Minnesota rust bucket. The 59 Chevy was a 4 door Biscayne with a blown up 6 cyl. Sat since 1972 in that spot. When the 59 Ford car was lifted, it almost broke in half from rust to the frame and body. No tractors ran, and had many parts missing.
Rare Bugatti Pulled From Lake After 73 Years.
Raw: A rare Bugatti that lay at the bottom of a lake for 73 years is set to fetch over 80,000 pounds at auction-the price of a brand new luxury motor.
The legendary car was dumped in the water in 1936 by a frustrated Swiss official because the owner had abandoned it without paying the import tax.
The value of the car was less than the money owed and the customs officer was compelled to destr More..oy it.
Thus, he drove it over the Italian border to nearby Lake Maggiore - and pushed it into the deep waters.
The story became part of folklore in the nearby town of Ascona as locals debated whether the car actually existed.
After 30 years, the truth emerged after a keen diver rediscovered the Bugatti lying on its side 160 feet down at the bottom of the lake.
Since then, members of the local diving club regularly visited it and last year decided to raise it and sell it for a local charity.
Surprisingly, there was still air in the tyres and traces of the original Bugatti blue paint on the bodywork.
It is believed that 20 per cent of the vehicle is salvageable and collectors and museums are likely to be keen to buy it.
"We've offered a few things in our time in the motoring department, but nothing like this," the Sun quoted James Knight, of auctioneers Bonhams, as saying.
"Sometimes we get cars that have been hidden in barns for years, but never have we had one that's spent 70 years at the bottom of a lake," he added.
The proceeds from the car's sell will be donated to the Damiano Tamagni Foundation.
The Type 22 Bugatti, built in 1925, had four cylinders, a 1.5 litre engine and reach almost 100mph.
It was a touring two-seater with no roof and was very lightweight.
The sale is on January 23 at the Bonhams Retromobile sale in France.
muscle car salvage yard
i made a trip to a salvage yard to look for seats for a 1969 barracuda and while i was there,i took alot of pics of cars and some trucks.lots of dodges and mopars and alot of chevy cars too. not many fords or foreign cars though. most of these are for sale and for parts.most cars are still restoreable. i did get permission to go there so i didnt trespass or break in. the yellow cuda in the warehouse was my favorite one. if you like anything please comment and ill give you some contact info.. the yard is in nacogdoches,tx.
P.S. the place is heavily secured so dont think of breaking in or you will get caught. the feed mill in the background is still in business and its very busy and 18 wheelers use the gravel road that im parked on quite often (the red 1986 chevy is my daily driver and is for sale in the deep east texas craigslist.)
Junkyard Cars 3
Junkyard Cars 3. I believe this to be an abandoned lot of cars that a forest has grown up around. Most of these have probobly been here for 30-40 years. I believe someone does own it but I heard that he's willing to sell- if you can get them out of the trees. Many of the older ones are pretty much unsalvageable, though. BTW: Located 3 miles up the road from New Boston, Il., which is by the Mississippi River.
Rust Is Cruel
I do not own any of these pictures or the used song.
Sorry for the song ending to soon.
Save This Plymouth Belvedere!
I don´t try to advertise or something, but I couldn´t bear to see this car go to waste.
