Next one is a car for sale.  I couldn't get close because it is locked inside a U-store-It. 



Wow i wish i could still see them like that..Late 90's all around Chicago land they sat in people's driveways looking like that.

Here's the front.

My oldest brother drives a truck for Food Lion. He's seen the place and stopped by to get contact info. The info he got on the white Firebird is that it is originally out of Chicago. Military guy owns it and his wife said it had been stored most of the time but he just doesn't have the time to restore it so they are trying to sell it. To high IMO at $4200. My brother has spoke to the owner of the black 78 Trans Am. He was suppose to meet the owner last weekend but my brother has just been too busy the last couple of weeks. According to the owner someone has stoen the AC components and valve covers off of it since it has been setting in the storage lot. Doesn't know if water got in the motor. 400 4spd car. My brother hopes to get over there next weekend to meet up with the owner. Here is the link to the 78 Firebird:

Here's a google satellite image of the car lot with the 6 camaros that's near my work.  I'm going by there today and will snap a few close ups.

Here was the scene as I drove up.  No one in sight, just about 4 cats.

Why is it people always use F-bodies as storage facilities?  I mean, they don't exactly do a good job of keeping the weather out.

This Z28 was the best in the lot.

T-tops, OMG!  I had hopes that this would be a Trans Am.  Just another Z28, though.

And I ended up with this nice pile of goodies... all for $20.  Two arm rest / door pulls from the corvette, an original 1970 motorolla radio for my VW, a seatbelt retainer clip for the passenger seat, a front seat mount cover, and two Trans Am center caps (yeah two in very good shape) from an '86 TA.  The guy asked me if I thought 20 was fair, I said really it wasn't fair, to him that is.  Those armrests go for a lot more on ebay.  He was okay with 20, though.
