At least he doesn't say "It powers up"......

Remember: "100" on EBay is not IQ............

Eeeek! Someone needs to sit the seller down and tell him to pull the plug on the old gal. Put an end to it's suffering.

When I was a teenager in south/central CO I encountered a recently dumped '55 Chevy 4dr sedan out in the woods. It was wonderful target practice. I also took some of the chrome trim pieces. Hmm, wonder what I did with them.

I can see some business using that for advertising, but probably not at anywhere near that price. You never know though.

Gimme that money and I will haul it away for you. This reminds me of the guys selling "flood radios" that are total garbage, for "restoration". At dumb prices.

Desperately going with the tiresome label "rat rod" to generate interest. He**, stick a light fixture in the top of it and call it "steampunk". But you got to admit it is mid-century retro, for sure.

It's junk....DOA. Not worth even crushing for crying out loud. Not a single piece off that mutilated carcass is salvageable.

There's more sheet metal in that old gal than several of the newer cars on the road today put together, but I'd really hate to see it go to the crusher. Worth restoring? Heck no, you'd go broke, but it'd make a neat lawn ornament, although the wife and neighbors might not agree :wink:

I really love junk yard art:
