  1. The rarest production car I ever saw was a pickup truck & it was just last month. The guy has a perfect original (looks like new) 1966 Chevy short bed pickup his father bought new because they needed a truck for the family farm. It was in PERFECT original condition with only 2973 miles. They bought it and never used it. I have seen many cars and trucks, I have also owned a few low production cars including the 47 Lincoln cont conv, 57 Ford 2 dr wagon and my 67 Mercury parklane conv that I own now. In my opinion a perfect original show room condition farm truck, that has been on a farm in a one car garage full of heavy farm equipment and oil cans since 1966 is much rarer they any restored car or truck regardless of production numbers. He is thinking of selling it but does not know the value or best way to sell it, any suggestions. I will open a new topic on this question.
  2. Does anyone know what this bumper goes to. It is for a larger car for sure. The ID badge in center looks like a C inside a C or G. thanks
  3. I showed up in a brand new 1977 pontiac trans-am 455 w/shaker hood and all. A guy where I worked lent me the car not knowing I was going for my road test and I took it anyway. I picked up my grandfather and went for the raod test but the guy would not let me take the test in that car. We went back and got grandma's 71 Malibu and passed the test. I told the T-A guy years later where I went with his car and he still got pissed off. OH WELL! That car was FAST

It has small modifacations for racing and was a money winner back in the day. It was owned and raced by Pete Magal and he called it the Maggot.

  12. Top of the frame behind the rear wheel kick-up, yes we looked there. The frame is very claen and we saw nothing there but may have not gone far enough. We'll look. Yes he plans on selling the car with the bad paint and yes there are idiots. Thanks I'll let you know.
  13. The paint shop lost the serial number ID vin tag off the door post tag on my buddies 55 buick century wagon and he needs to know where the number can be found on the frame. He was told to cut the tin over the frame in the back behind the wheels and it was stamped there but after cutting the metal he found nothing and has 2 nice holes that have to be fixed. So before he cuts anything else up I told him I would post a thread. He was told all kinds of differant areas but no luck. Does anyone know for sure and exactly where it is? He needs to find it so he can have it confirmed by the NYSDMV and a new documented vin tag made.
