And let me guess: The owner said: "No it's not for sale. I'm going to fix it up someday."

You can get it out with a chain saw and a hatchet....then it'll buff right up.

I was out Lark hunting a while back, and I found an ad online for a car in similar condition, though not as thoroughly covered in growth. I had to laugh because the ad said that the "floor panels haven't started rusting through". (That was the only reason I drove to see that particular car.)

When I got there, I managed to clear enough brush to get the drivers side door open, and you could see almost as much light through the floor as you could through the windows. Initially I thought that maybe he just hadn't looked at the car in 20 years and the floors were solid back then. But than I realized that maybe he said that the floors hadn't started rusting through because they'd already finished rusting through. I drove home thinking that this guy should be in marketing.

On a more serious note, it looks like a v8 motor in there. If anything, maybe there's someone out there who could hack that out and put it to use. The front glass looks okay too. You could probably pull a few useful parts from it.
