    So whom would you sell it to?

    An old saying comes to mind. A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush.

    If that’s a 2 dr. sedan, you did a lot of work. Wow, looks like you could pay football in the back seat! Nice car.

    Does anybody have a time machine?

    My first trip to a junk yard was in 1950 or 1951. I was with Dad. It was Ott Conley’s, in Lincoln, Illinois. It looked just like that picture. I have often wondered what treasures I walked by, as I knew nothing about cars at that young age. Why can I remember that day of so long ago, but have no idea what I ate for breakfast?

    What's your most 'unexpected' part find?

    In 1957 I purchased my first tool. I was 11 years old. It was a screwdriver with different size bits that were stored in the handle. A common thing today, but unusual at that time. The body was plastic with a curved smooth panel on all 4 sides. With the point of my Boy Scout pocket knife, I scratched my initials in each panel. Somewhere along the way I lost the screwdriver, no idea when or where. As time passed I forgot all about it. Many years later I was at a salvage yard looking for a part for my car. When I located a model car similar to mine, I went over and opened the door. Surprise! Lying on the floor was a screwdriver identical to the one I had purchased with my paper route money many years before, and then lost. I picked it up and surprise again! There were my initials carved in 4 sides of the handle! I lived in a small farming community where you knew everyone, and what car they drove. As I stood there looking at the car, I realized I did not know who had owned it, or how my screwdriver had gotten in it.

    1940 Olds got my head spinning....

    I recently had a new coil that was defective. Took a long time to find it because I kept checking everything else.

    Bring a Battery......and Maybe Some Gas.

    That should buff out ok.?
  14. I was in the 6th grade when the Edsel debuted. We boys were excited when our teacher bought one, and ran outside at the final bell to see it. If I remember correctly, we liked it. In the following years, I remember them being referred to as a lemon sucking an egg.
