Old Matt is good at digging out some sleepers

I'm not sure you end up leaving several hundred thousand dollars around?

But, I would like to hear the story.

Just amazing!  Would so love to know the story behind all of this.  Looks like it used to be a beautiful home.  How does it get in such disrepair?

Matts got the car running so he can now drive it down a rock road and have fun with it now!   haha

Just looked in my files, have some photos from a while back, when was it found ? Special Ed mentions he saw it at a show.

As Corey says, you wonder what the human story is behind it ?

CharlesTurner

I'm sure it's a conversation piece as-is, but I personally could not leave it looking like that and would have to restore it.

Is there any particular reason why they didn't raise the hood in the video?

Hood hinges were locked up due to all of the 🦝 piss.
