Now a 1969 GT 500 Mustang??

How come I don't know anyone with a garage and an old car just waiting to be driven. This one though would probably need some motor work before it was really drivable....

As the older Boomers pass on I bet a lot more "collectables" will be discovered.

My brother in-law talked about an older bachelor ( a little eccentric) near Hardisty, Alberta that had been purchasing two identical Chevy 1/2 ton trucks, every second year, since 1955 or 1954. He drove one, parked the other one.

When I die the auctioneer is going to find a nearly new, never used broom tucked in the corner of the garage and bunch of worn out toys ready for the scrap heap....just saying.

These barn/garage finds say a lot about the what the cost of living and amount of discretionary money is like today compared to a generation or two ago.

In the early 1970's my father worked with a guy at the GM Tech Center in Warren Mi. that bought 4- Opel GT's brand new, put on a flat bed at the dealer and taken to his home in Detroit. Put them in the garage never to be driven. He told my father that one day they would be worth a couple of bucks. He had lost his wife and never had any children. I wonder what ever happened to them.
