    must be another one of those cars that they are going to restore. 10 years down the road it'll still be sitting there and rotten beyond being restorable.:mad:

    Yeah, found one right here in my home town as well. Won't sell the car, seems they just need to have more storage room. Car is packed with stuff, it is green, kind of like a new growth in spring green, blends right in with all of the other things around it. It is a Grabber though, green with black stripes, big bumper car, a 75 I think, might be a 74. Could not get close enough to tell from a distance, they didn't even want me to get close to it actually. And it has at least two of the aluminum slots on it as well.
