Me and my friend, a few years back, found some cars that we like to think were used by the mafia. They were back in a wooded area covered in brush and stuff. The cars were a white rolls royce with a black mercedes parked on either side of it. I would have to guess that they were 30s or 40s cars. It was really cool. We took some parts off the RR and a few of the mercedes. We went back there a couple months later and the cars were gone. It looked like someone dragged them out and brought them to a scrap yard. They were by no means in running condition, probably beyond being able to be restored, but still pretty cool. That was and probably ever will be the only time i'll ever get to sit in the drivers seat of a Rolls Royce.

I saw this a few weeks ago at a scrap metal place. Almost brought tears to my eyes.

This photo did not bring a tear to my eye, It made my left eye twitch real bad. I'd like to take the idiot that brought that car to the scrap yard and horse drag him by his testicles. Then, whip the idiot that piled all that other scrap on top of it with the same rope. Man O Man O Man. Like my Grandma used to say "Some people ain't got the sense God gave to a Jacka ss". olnolan

It looks like someone started an off frame resto ,even had it blasted ,frame and all then used a lacquer primer over bare metal....Then let it sit for a few years and lost intrest...
Its funny but they'll scrap a car for pennies but if you stop by and offer to buy it they wont sell or want to be ridiculus about it....
This should be a crime......Sell it cheap to some young guy with ambition that'll at least work on it. it looks like a 39 plymouth....I wonder what pile the fenders are in....
