While rummaging through a somewhat local junkyard (Northern California)a while back, I came upon an amazing site that had me drooling down my shirt. There in the very back of the lot was a collection of '30's tin in  immaculate shape. And I do mean immaculate. There were approximately 20 to 25 cars - most are four door sedans, and all are 'other than Ford' stuff. Dodge, Plymouth, Terraplane, Pontiac, Buick, Nash, Graham, Cadillac. The list goes on. We bought a '37 Olds sedan for $4000. The upholstery has no tears, there is only surface rust,When we got it home and knocked off the dirt and changed the plugs, it fired right up.
So, if anyone's seriously looking for a '30's project, let me know, and I'll point you to the yard.

I don't need anything new to do right now but I like to see pictures of raw material.  Did you take any?

I'm new here and since Brent was talking about posting pictures I would try it here, don't know if it'll work or not but here goes one from my Photobucket acct.

OK. So I'm six years behind the curve on your post. I'd appreciate a point to the yard. Looking for something to do traditional this time.
Thanks & watch your rear-view mirror!!!
