By the graces of god I hope it doesn't happen to any of us !!!! Its a blast to walk through all those cars and trucks and to talk to him his eyes lite up when you talk about the old drag days!!! His old race cars are in those woods, nail heads, 389 & 421 Pontiac's, 425 olds, 455 Buick's,and a couple of 409s all gm no Fords no Chryslers (except for a few trucks)Its like a General motors cemetery out there!!!!

That must have been wild walking thru there. I assume those cars are pretty much rusted out hulks now not worth rebuilding? Or do they look savable?
