Alright guys, I guess I should give ya'll the full story.
There was this...umm..."nomadic" guy that had property and all behind my friends house, who live way out of town, on the highway. He drove around this huge Winebago thing with crazy castles and stuff painted on it.
Anyways, he's long gone, and we've checked out his place, which consists of POS structures, etc. He had about 3. Had makeshift walls, old desks, etc etc. It looks like a dump.
Well anyways he has all of these stripped cars. We think he stole or bought for cheap these cars, and parted them out and sold the parts. One is down to just the body on cinder blocks. The ones closer to the entrance are the worse stripped. There are 8 cars I think.
The Coupe DeVille is at the very back, even has the wheels, unmolested, just sunken into the ground. The 500 looks better than mine before I started. The carb is great, the vacuum thingy isn't worn out, etc etc. Seals are good, no large amount of oil/grease. It looks superb.
Well anyways, so none of this is techinically my friends' familys' property. Not like it maters, the guy is obviously not coming back. However, his step dad won't let us touch them. Because it isn't their property. They want to buy the land to have in which case they wouldn't mine me having what I wanted for free, but the city can't sell it to them without compensation, etc of the owner, but he is no where to be found.
So if I could, I would do just what dave said. I would have myself the engine and trans and store it to put in something when I had the time and $$$.
Either way, I'm going to get the A/C vents from it, mine are cracked/broken. If we get a good time when his step dad isn't around I am going to try to pull the dash apart and get the clock. Mine doesn't work, maybe this one would. Also I am going to pull the red/white lights that go on the door panel. I'm sure theres other things that I don't know of yet.
So anyways, that's the story, and the reason why I can't even pay for the engine and trans from this car. Next time I'll take some pictures and post them if you guys want.
