                Hey it goes back to one of my post , Still Out There. What a shame, but they are his and he has the right to do what he want with them. I will keep trying to work a deal.

                  Next time show up with lots of cash for the car you want. Money talks.

                    I know this may sound crass - but start working on befriending any relatives... we all know these cars rarely if ever get restored... they get passed on in the will to people who generally don't care about them and are willing to sell.

                          Now that’s funny Lol. The guy uncovered them and let me look at them all.The blue one is yellow originally, way prettier than blue. But his dad was a die hard Petty fan. I guess that’s why he had Earl Shibe paint it. Hell he has the 68 Petty Blue car what was he thinking?
