Yes I ripped off the idea from the split bus thread. Lets get a post going of ghia's you found and bought; found and parted; found and left; etcetera. Post pics!!

Yeah, it looks like a sapling grew through the rotted out light bucket, then it grew and blew the metal out. Thankfully someone pulled the complete front bumper and put it inside the car!! I nabbed that. The drivers door was ok, but I wasn't up for hiking with it. The rest of the car is shot. Creepy place owned by a creepy lady.

I got this crusty but mostly complete May, 1958 coupe for $300. Original 36HP/transaxle and interior (albeit spraypainted black). The nice fellow who I bought it from even delivered it to my garage.

I am only a half hour south of the boneyard. Even if the car is a complete loss I see parts in the pics that I need for my 56 coupe. Should be a great treasure hunt!!!!!!!!

The yard was closed on Sunday but I called them today. They are selling off or crushing all of the cars in inventory in the next two months. My friend who is a Mustang nut is going up Wednesday to look around and scout the car for me. If it looks good he will slap it on a trailer and bring it to me. If he dosent take his trailer I will arrange to get it all or parts on Saturday as its the soonest I can get there..........


Wish me luck.......
