  • 1953 coupe found in Virginia!

    While driving in the southbound lane of I-81 in Virginia at mile marker 259.5, which is a little north a Harrisonburg I believe, on the right side of the highway is a 53 coupe that has been put out to pasture, I couldn't ge a pic at 70 mph, but the car looks to be a good candidade for restoration and all that I could see missing on the car was the passenger side rear fender, the car is in fact a 53, it is a Navy blue color, and is a coupe from what I could tell while being the driver. More info would be greatly appreciated.

    Paul Johnson (53K) may know something of it. Based on where you say it is, it would be north of Mauzy (Exit 257, perhaps on Concord Church Road). Was it north or south of the rest stop on the northbound side?

      I have seen it too, but never checked it out. It has been there quite a while. You can't see it from US 11 and I didn't want to bother to try to figure out which house it belonged to. The Earlys (Gerry, Dale) probably have checked it.

        I don't remember, because I only drive through that area once or twice a year.
