This car was at a Seattle area swap meet recently. 68 Chevelle SS with original engine and tach dash
that was sitting outside with no doors or trunk lid since '78. Floors had moss that was 2 inches thick.
I didn't even bother to look in the trunk. The seller had already robbed the 12-bolt and engine out of it,
and was selling the car with ($900) or without ($600) the tach dash. - Rainer

This hugger orange 1969 Z/28 Camaro was parked in the back yard of the original
owners mother in 1972, and sat there until I was able to purchase it in Aug. 1999. It's all original
with 302 CID, M-21, 4:10 posi, speed warning, tach/gauges, tilt wheel, black interior, chambered exhaust,
flat hood and no spoilers. Odometer reads 36642 It was only missing the wheels and a few minor items.
It had a cold air hood on it, and the original flat hood was in the shed. Build sheet was still
attached to the fuel tank.
My buddy calls one day out of the blue and says the car may now be for sale. I go over there that day.
An 80 yrs old woman lets me in to look at the car, but says her grandson is the owner. It was left to him
when her son (the original owner) passed. The nice lady confirms the story that my buddy has
been telling me all these yrs!!. We call grandson (in another state) on the spot. He says
"I will never sell that car". I leave my number just in case.
A month later grandson calls wanting to make a deal. The next day I am back with a tow truck and
a couple thousand bucks. The car is now in the process of being restored. - LTA10
