My first vette was a 78 that I restored and modified. 2 years, countless hours and lots of $$$ later I had a real sweet ride. :thumbsup: That was 12 years ago. Well, yesterday a friend of mine called me up and said he had run across her and he would send pictures. Well...ahhhhh :WTF - she was in a junkyard stripped! It was so depressing. No motor, hood, tops, steering column, interior and rusted!! . I can't believe that she was toast. I asked him if the owner might consider selling her (so I could start over again) but he said that she was not for sale because he was using the parts to rebuild HIS vette. Should I be sad or happy that parts of her are helping other vettes?
