  1. John Maine and DJ The point of horrible looking was the main reason we restored a 62 Dart when I managed to have one presented to me.
  2. Have been thru all of the links and from what I see, it seems to be mostly Buick oriented, plus a lot of misc stuff. Big question, any Packard stuff worth going after.
  3. It's kind of hard to go junk yard pickin when there is no location given. I may have missed it.
  4. Packards42: I am curious as to whom you are responding to????? ALK
  5. I would call first and make an appointment especially if it is a 3 hour or more trip.
  6. I re-read all of the previous posts and I did not see one line in there that said "you have have to collect any car based on somebody elses idea of what is collectable". everybodys idea is different, so collect what you want. I believe the question was "what FWD cars do anyone think will be collectable?". Let's stick to that question.
  7. None. I think we can see the day when the 25 year guideline is going to go by the way side. Cars from the late 80's and early 90's are strictly from hunger. They may be considered antique by AACA guidelines but I would not hold my breath waiting for cars to show up for those classes. You are just not going to be able to find all of the computer junk necessary to get them running. If they have been locked in an air-controlled environment and only have 25 miles on them then well maybe, but don't try to drag one from a field and try to restore it.
  8. If you ever do this around Atlanta let me know. I have a 1956 pink and black Dodge Custom Royal Lancer 4dr hardtop that would look well. ALK
  9. What is the pickup address. My daughter lives in Rochester as did I at one time. I might be able to enlist her aid. There GVACS AACA, and Wayne Drumlins AACA in the area and maybe some one in those groups that could help ALK
  10. Yup Same here. All of the dealers were with a bike ride from home. All the kids would wait until the opening day in 1956/57 when all the forward look fin cars were introduced. Think about the way they do it/or don't do it now. They introduce a 2013 in February of 2012. Sure you have a future car now and the sales person does a real good sales(snow) job on you about that. But then 2013 rolls around and you want to trade it in on a 2014 car and that same miserable cretan of a sales person now beats you over the head and disparages the car because this 2013 car has excessive mileage on it. Go figure.
  11. Hech I've got food stains on my ties that are older than that. welcome to the old farts club anyway Al:D:rolleyes::eek:
  12. If you go to e-bay you can do a search and find 2 other riv convertible with prices a lot lower than that. They may not be in as good condition but for the difference in price you could afford to do whatever needs to be done.
