about 2 or 3 months ago i was out looking for a car for my gf. ( my wife now). hit a junk yard that i knew of as a kid, luckily they had another yard in the back. full of old classics. got to looking around and out of the corner of my eye..... there she was. beggin me to rescue her from the depths of hell. heard it to the grapevine that the car had been sitting there for about 10 years. so after about amonth or two of haggeling finally got a price that i could live with. went down to pay for her and found out ...... abaded damn doesnt that suck. for the next week went out searchin all over north calif for a cat. one guy lured me about 200 miles away for a car that had nothing but quarter panels ( when i say nothing i mean nothing) and he wanted 300 for it . I wanted to kick his ... well nevermind. so i finally get back home and get it in my head to call dmv and see what the rules are for abaded cars. found out the vin wasnt even in the comp. woooooo hooooo i can buy it. went back to the junk yard the very next day and saved her from her ill fate, demolition. now after losing my first cougar to a chop shop i now have a second chance . but im gonna take my time with the restoration, cuz my truck needs attention (my boy). how did you get your car spill it .
