I found just 3 blocks from my work today a 66 fairlane gt running and a 67 fairlane gta running. I asked the man if they were for sale and he said no he had them for over 20 years with plans to restore them but he was in a wheel chair and just hadnt had the money. I offered to restore both of them in trade for one of them and he said no he would eventually get them done. both are in excellent shape with the exeption of some wear and tear from being driven at some time in the past. even the interior was decent. I pointed out to him that sitting under pine trees was only going to couse them to go down hill and he said he would get someone to move them. i offered but he said it was ok he would get it done. Very nice man with a love for his cars. you got to admire that but still to let 2 nice cars go down like that is such a shame. also over the past weekend went to a car show at a prop town from the 50s and 60s (awsome detail complete with dinners and fillin station) but what really got me was the town junkyard 69 torino gt 64 fairlane studibakers and other classics sitting on the ground very upsetting when you need parts and someone does this to good cars. and no i asked he wont sell a thing. well thats my adventures lately other than working on my car.

im going tommarrow to look at 2 68fastbacks and a 4 door. i will see what hes got . they are all wrecked but hopefully some parts there. as far as a hood he said they were junk when i talked to him but all the windsheilds are suposed to be good. i also need one thanks to a buddy tring to help me out and lend a hand. i found a glass hood at a car show but it was a 4 pin hood not hinged. seems like i found them on an internet search, if i can find them again i will post site.
