  1. Assume you mean the river. Junk cars sometimes were embedded in river banks to control erosion - sorta like a retaining wall.
  2. As others have posted, find a knowledgeable (and sympathetic) DMV employee to help you. That said: https://www.flhsmv.gov/motor-vehicles-tags-titles/liens-and-titles/ Seems to me the questions are whether your dad can prove ownership and whether the sale price is fair market value. Hopefully, your dad has titles signed over to him by your grandparents, even though he never transferred them. If so and they're out-of-state, they have to be verified against the vehicle VINs - not applicable if they're in-state. Dunno what happens if all he has are bills-of-sale - that's where the knowledgeable and sympathetic DMV employee comes in. Fees can be expensive. Rather than paying them twice, it would be cheaper for your dad (assuming he is eligible to title the vehicles) to sell them to you without titling them - you would then title them in your name. Whether DMV would let you do that is the question. Also, recall you have to pay sales tax - it may be a problem if they determine the sale price is unreasonably low.
  3. Uh-oh - 666 TWICE!! That's a "Christine" car for sure - better have it exorcised quick! Just kidding - very nice car. Wagons are cool, especially 2-door ones.
  4. Pretty much like all car guys. That Camaro has some serious rear fender cutouts - maybe they thought all those kid racers would put on monster slicks.
  5. Per BLS CPI Inflation Calculator, $300 in 1954 equates to just under $2,900 today - I'll buy them all day long for that!
  6. I like how they're being chased by the bad guys at high speed, the dog just yawns and hops in the back for a nap.
  7. Still curious as to what make the Business Coupe is?
  8. The point is business coupes are not necessarily stripped down low-end makes. Some makes produced them in top-of-the-line trim and some higher-end makes also produced the body style. If by "particular example" you mean a specific car, it's likely impossible to know what has or hasn't been on it over the past 100 years or so. Taking that to the absurd, the car should have the factory-installed coolant in the radiator, gas in the tank, oil in the crankcase, and air in the tires. So I have no problem with a couple OEM accessories regardless whether they were factory, dealer, or owner installed. I also have no problem with a period-appropriate aftermarket accessory or two. I do have a problem when the sheer number of accessories makes the car look like a circus wagon. But it's the owner's to accessorize as he/she pleases.
  9. Early-50s Plymouth business coupes may be low-line but not all are - just sayin'. But I agree about over-accessorizing.
  10. I'm guessing that's the "1938 Business man's coupe" behind the Stude. Can anybody tell what it is from the limited info?
  11. Sorry for your loss. As others have noted, posting photos, prices, and location may get better results. Also, what make is the 1938? Business Coupe just refers to the body style.
  12. Yup - pretty good pic showing it on car:
  13. ...and? That would make it an early production 29 MODEL year, which may or may not be worth a premium - but it's still a 29. Look, I'm not dissing your car. It appears to be very nice. Call it what you will but it's a 29.
