My Yard Sale Find
It was a hot day in June and my wife and I decided to go to some yard sales and running around for a few hours we were getting tired and the car was full of are finds so we decided to head toward home some 30 miles away. We had ventured way out into the country. I decided to take a short cut home and turned down this country gravel road and when we got to a cross roads there was a sign that said Yard Sale 1 mile to the left. We looked at each other and said why not, one more wont hurt. So off this road we went and shortly there was another sign pointing up this long drive way. We drove up to a big barn that was full of all kinds of things, after looking at everything and coming out the side door of the barn (BINGO) there she was this beautiful old car with a sign in the window.I walked over to check it out as I opened the door to look inside this Old farmer comes out with a big smile on his face and says "are you interested" and I say sure how much you asking for her, he then says $3000, so I pop the hood to see the engine when I ask him, does she run. He says sure just pup the gas and she will start right up. So I check the car all over then get in and sure enough she starts right up.
I say to the wife this is just what we need for a play toy, she agrees so I give the guy a check and take her home. We polished her all up and have been taking her to the local car show every weekend. We have won two trophy's with here, she is a 1947 Chevrolet Fleetline
