Back a few years ago my neighbor started dating a divorced lady and by proxy ended up with her ex husbands lincoln, which he had no interest in. He took it to a car show hoping for $4500 but no takers. Over the next couple months I was getting phone calls offering me a deal. First was $2500. A steal for a 40 something year old car. I said no, at the time I had a couple old vettes taking up my barn space. Month later price dropped down to $1500. Much better deal, but still had the other projects and my wife telling me I wasn't parking that thing in the yard. Another month passes and I get a call as my dad and brother are stopping over. The neighbor tells me to get it out if his driveway for just $500.00. My brother and dad check it out and decide that we need a family project that we can take to shows. Everyone puts in 1/3rd of the price. And it begins.
