I visited a yard like that in Toledo - about '97 or so. I bought the wonderbar radio out of a '58 Packard wagon that was there. What was odd - really odd! - was the fact that the crumbling seat cushion was setting on the dirt. This was because the Packard had slowly rotted down onto the ground until the floors were completely gone and the seats still set in place while not attached to anything![:0]:( I wanted to save the super-rare factory roof rack that was on it but it was a humid day and I was serving as lunch for a vicious swarm of mosquitos.
I DID save the Ohio registration that I found in the glove box. I've got it tacked up on the garage wall with other bits and trinkets.[^]

Miscreant adrift in

WOW! You have a job where you get paid to play on the internet instead of having to do work? [:0]

Do they need any help? ;)

Coastal cars rust from the top down....
Rust belt cars rust from the bottom up...
A driver from the rust belt that moves to the coast is dead meat,
It will disappear in short order;)

Agree Jeff. Disproves the old adage

We have a couple of cars here that the floors are gone and the seats are still in place but are sitting on dirt. The bottom 5 inches of the cars are literally gone, but the headliners are still pretty nice looking. [8]
We also have a Hawk with the top cut off that actually broke in half when we jacked it up to pull the brake drums. :D

Yah .. break is between 9:00 and 9:15, and then 2:00-2:15. So most of
my posts will fall between those times. There will be an occasional
post during the day when I need a moment to whip the brain back into
gear. My job tends to be quite boring. A 2 minute distraction helps.

I will also post on my lunch hour. I sit at a computer ALL day!

Uhhh, does the pic have to be a Stude? I can't seem to find my photo-album with the Stude stuff in it, isn't moving fun?

1988 Grand Am, 170K, the whole car looked like this, but it got me thru college.

Here's a couple pix of rusty studes. The '57 GH was on ebay?? a couple years ago. The collage of junkyard studes I made up some time ago from photos I took in various junkyards in Mn and SD while I was hunting parts for my '53. I know several of them are now crushed and gone :( I've got more but they are not scanned in.
