This is a poor vette sitting in Washington. Brandon
" BOWTIES IN BARNS - PAGE # 66 "
Here's some muscle that's not to muscular anymore. The 68 El-Camino belongs to a friend of mine who bought the car new, parked in the 80's, got a divorce and had to move the cars. After a year this is what's left. I'd offered to buy the elkie many times, to the same old story of going to fix it one day. The 56 disappeared and the Olds became a parts car as well as the Camino did. Frodo
I found this jem in a field in South Eastern Saskatchewan. It had been stored for 13 years in a barn then put out on the prairie to rot for the last 4 years. It has a 455 balanced and blue printed with 455 plus horsepower, a 4 speed with a Hurst shifter, rear spoiler and W-25 ram air hood. The list goes on. Needless to say, It's mine now and I will be restoring it. Rick
I heard a rumor of a rat-powered Chevelle SS-396 in my girlfriend's family. When we went to her brothers wedding in rural PA this fall, her father arranged for me to see his 1st cousin's Chevelle. It has been sitting in his tool shed on his farm since Aug. 84. The first words out of his mouth were "it is not for sale!". He bought it in 71 after it had be repossessed. It has the original 325 horse engine, M-20 4-speed, 4:10 posi, red with black vinyl top and black bucket seat interior with console. Interior is in excellent condition. Just at 100,000 miles. He keeps the tires inflated and said he pushed it outside and washed it off 10 years ago. The tool shed is dry at least and I could spot only one pencil eraser sized rust spot on the drivers door. There were plenty of bird droppings and hornets nest on it. He is single with no kids. The car will sit there forever according to my girlfriend's father.
These 2 Vette's are located in my hometown in Central California. The red vette has been sitting outside since the early 80's. I remember the owner used to drive the black one around town in the 80's. It has sat from at least 1990.
