This should be illegal!

I know that a car is a car and when it's reached the end of it's life, the junkyard is where it goes.. but some vehicles are just too collectible to be thrown out with the rest of the garbage.

This is sort of like seeing that adorable kitten in the shelter.. and you know that it's going to be put down in the next week or so.

By the time I go back to the JY the glass will probably be smashed out and the roof ripped off by the forklifts. :crying: I would try to score those wheels but by the way that the car looks, I imagine that the wheels are bent from the car being tossed around the yard.

Jack it up & give them a spin. Look & see if they really are warped.

There was an ad on CL here for a 'vette with a rod knock, trade for a running vehicle. I'd thought about offering up my buggy for a short time, but decided against it.

If it was a Crossfire it would have been a great candidate for an engine swap of some kind. I'd toss a 4.8/5.3L in it and drive those sawblades off.
