50 years ago, my uncle parked his "daily driver" college vehicle in my grandmothers carport....Eventually, the carport received walls and doors, and was pretty much left that way for the last 25 years or so. Fast forward a few, grandmother passes, and the aforementioned uncle purchases/inherits the family land. Then calls for a "clean up" day, which was heartily attended by a lot of the family, myself included.
I showed pictures of my Cougar to my uncle, and "mentioned" his old college car being my "next" project, should he ever want to part ways....
Didn't seem interested, so......
Two weeks later, I notice a post on his wifes FB account....he SOLD IT!!!! GAAAH!!!!!
I used to "pretend" drive that thing when I was a kid!!!
