THIS IS SO WRONG, I CANNOT EXPRESS MY OUTRAGE
Actually, I think I'll give it a try.

These people have no idea how important it is that these cars be preserved and restored. These cars are a national heritage, part of the history of our country.
After World War II no one really made an effort to preserve the aircraft that were such a pivotal part of that war. Now there are few flying examples of these wonderful, beautiful machines that helped save our way of life. For instance, while there are several museum piece B-29s, there is only one that is still flying. Fifi is still flown to airports around the country for shows, tours, and occasionally, educational programs. The group that flies her relies entirely on donations and souvenier sales to keep her in the air(If I find a website for this group, I will post it).
We cannot allow the cars that so defined an era in our history to dwindle as WWII aircraft did. If you have restored or are restoring a car of any era, I applaud you, keep up the good work. If you find one of these cars that calls to you, that you want to bring back to life, Be Persistent, do not give up after one "No". Often, someone who has one of these vehicles in a barn or a garage or a field will relent and agree to sell. Some simply want to be sure that the car that once meant so much to them is in the hands of a person who will truly appreciate them. Some are simply reluctant to sell the vehicle because it belonged to a loved one, but, whatever the reason, do your best to persuade them.
Keep these beautiful machines on the road, not in a museum.

OK, I'm climbing down off the soapbox now, sorry about the lecture.

one of my favorite sites, i get a little discouraged about the way they are allowed to rot, then there is just the insane, like the one page on that site where a car dealer would take the unsold units to his farm and just park them. Letting BRAND NEW Chevys rot. its unreal to me. Of course it just reflects what an abundant society we really live in, if cars are that worthless to some.

How bout Cars in Abandoned Dealerships.

Get this, close to me there was an old BMW dealer. Well it moved or closed down or whatever but anyway inside are 3 classic 5 Series BMW sedans and a GORGEOUS 626 Coupe, look like mid eighties models.

In pristine indoor condtion. Just sitting there




Just like that /\
