Know of any old cars just sitting?

This is a thread for those old cars that you see sitting around. If you have any photos post them up!
Here is a car I found.

Worth more then $200 parted out.

I would bet its sitting cause of to much rot in the floors in the back.

But never dismiss a car that looks rough


This Buick had $800 worth of parts in it still

Back in the 80's there was a Jaguar E-type and an AMC Javelin AMX (odd mix I know) sitting behind my apartment. They looked like they'd been there since the early '70s. I never did find out who owned them. Every time I looked at that E-type with the V12 peeking through the holes in the hood, all I could think of was that song by Jan and Dan, "Dead Man's Curve".

Neighbor has a Corvette C3 just sitting in his garage, I've never seen him take it out.

Fairly sure he also has a Mazda Miata sitting in there, plus a '69 Mustang in his barn.

I was offered a Buick GS just like the one pictured above for $400. I was too slow to move on it...guy took it to a Buick meet and parted it out. He sold almost $2900 in parts off of that car...and still kept the 4 speed and the motor with intake.

That Trans-Am is needing a ground up for sure. $200 would buy a TON of headaches.

Everyday to and from work I have to pass the saddest scene. I don't have any pics, but a black and white '55 chevy and a blue 4th gen Camaro sits out in these people's front yard in all the elements. Been two years since I've seen either one move.

i hate seeing cars in those conditions. most of the time its hoarders that have no way of ever fixing them up, even though they say they will. after that person dies, the cars get sent to the crusher cause the family doesn't want to deal with them and another piece of vintage detroit iron is recycled into an appliance. pisses me off!

This very common in the south. I know where a 70 model challanger is in Sylvester Ga just sitting and has been for 10 yrs +
A 59 Corvette in a Garage
And a 58 Corvette in a back yard
And they do not want to sell them because of sentimental reasons.

See, that's what I don't understand. It's almost like a mental illness. If there's so much sentimental emotion attached to those cars, let them go to someone that will restore them and take care of them. You gotta ask "if this car could talk, what would it say?"....

there is a guy in the area that has a large building full of mopars and parts. so much in fact, that cars are sitting outside, rotting away, because there is no room inside for them. the guy had a charger/coronet/road runner fetish and there are a bunch there, mostly fully intact. i even saw what looked to be a complete super bird in the corner buried under boxes. also, on the inside is box after box of vintage performance parts, unopened from back in the day. the upstairs part of this building has almost every piece of trim and interior parts imaginable and would be a goldmine for any mopar enthusiast trying to restore theirs. the problem is, this guy is not selling any of it except on occasions when he has more than two of what you are looking for. luckily, i was able to get a rust free rear bumper for my 73 road runner from him to see this goldmine in person. his son was a mechanic at my work and just happened to start talking cars to him the one day and he had me meet him at his dad's house. it was unbelievable. wish i would have taken pics.

this guy was clearly sick in the head!
