  1. I posted a car on Craigslist a few days ago and got this response: I want to buy the car and i will be paying in cash. However, I'd really want to inspect history report before i come to check it out. I'd really appreciate if you can get it from because I'd like to repay you if we cut a deal, and they're a lot cheaper than carfax or something else. If everything comes out clean on the report we will set up a meeting and I am getting the car. When the "buyer" would not produce any contact information I Googled the site he was pushing and found this FCC Warning: A scam aimed at car sellers Scammers are relentless. I have had to remove a Jaguar XKE off of Ebay UK three times so far where it was posted for 25,000.00 stg. Great deal for a $200,000.00 car. This articles goes into detail on the scam: Almost fell for a scam
  2. Thanks Paul. I will give them a try. And Trimcar - my library just opened again I will look it up. I love those kinds of stories. John Steinbeck wrote Travels with Charley: In Search of America. Charely was his dog though - not his wife:)
  3. How about a 1935 Auburn Boattail Speedster?
  4. This is very sad. Greg Zanis is the guy that built crosses for people killed by gun violence here in the US. He was a retired carpenter who is now dying of cancer: Greg Zanis This is an excerpt from the article: In fact, he was looking forward to teaching the charity's staffers to build the crosses -- as well as to a personal project: restoring a shot-up 1927 Cadillac Imperial stretch limousine that once belonged to a Chicago gangster, he said. Maybe if there are some classic car owners in the area you could show up with your cars on his tribute day and make it so much better.
  5. I thought you were going to say third picture is of me crying because I sold it. Great surprise to see a picture of the car today. Hope you are still the happy owner. Beautiful car.
  6. Dave Henderson is the winner! DeSoto Badges
  7. This is from the article: Located in Royal Oaks, Michigan, the newly opened Royal Pontiac quickly became the stomping grounds of groups of street racing kids. Droves of performance-loving teenagers and young adults were regularly found hanging around Royal’s service department just wanting to see what the gearheads at Royal were up to. Now those would be some great pictures to see...
  8. @Robert Street - Did you post the story behind the car? Did you wreck it and then you all came to visit it in the junkyard? Just trying to get the facts sir. I spent a lot of time in auto junkyards (following around a cute guy that was a gearhead and BMW 2002 owner) and I would have had a smile on my face if I found it in a junkyard. Definitely a frowney face if I had wrecked it the day before LOL
  9. Other than being the saddest looking bunch of hipsters I ever saw (and not for lacking style which you got going on) but what's the story there? Looks like you rolled it and then parked it? Great car by the way. Great sunglasses.
  10. Oh no Officer I'm fine. My dad was just trying to teach me how to drive a car ...
  11. I was 12 trying to pretend I was 16. Now I'm almost 60 trying to pretend I'm 55. You truly can not turn back time:)
  12. Terry here is a picture of Wilkes Barre after the flood. My parents had a store there.
  13. Oh Man you made me cry listening to that song. I had five older brothers and sisters. The 70's were all about music and cars. Come to think of it not much has changed for me. Thanks for making me cry in my coffee. A welcome relief from the depressing news.
