A car can look like dead within a few years if the owners don't keep up on the maintainence and repairs. Garages help a lot with paint preservation.

:( Very sad. Hard to let go of a car, especially one that's been with you for that long.

Exactly what I was thinking.

That was really dumb junking that car. The body was straight. Would have been a great project. Plus they tossed a lot of useful parts. Did it just go to a scrap yard? :(

Thats a nice car to scrap. I would have easily paid scrap price for it with out even thinking about it.

Dam too bad no one could have saved it. That would have been a perfect shell for a V8 or LS swap

Not sure junking it was the best thing to tell us car lovers. We kill for bodies that clean up here in the mid west. That's a waste.
