"What can I say? I’m a sucker for 50’s fins. I just picked up another '59 last week from a great guy in Washington. He was the second owner, and the first owner lived at the next farm house down the road! It's a six-cylinder with 3 on the tree, Snowcrest White with Roman Red interior, and 69,000 original miles. All original and could have driven it home if it would have had better tires. It will make a great addition next to my El Camino and Brookwood and custom 59 trailer projects."


is this guy a member? If you've never checked out the website "cars in barns.com" , do yourself a favor and check it out. Grab some tissues first. You'll cry ata ll of the cars you see just rusting away.

I agree Robert, nothing like living the country life. I make my living in Houston and do my living 50 miles away. And on the weekends its to the ranch another 100 miles away. Nothing like going out and spending all Friday morning mowing the hay fields then raking and baleing. I'm building more corrals now to make it easier to vaccinate and worm the cows. Ahh, the smell of fresh manure.. beats the smell of the city.

Nothing like open spaces......I couldn't live in a city. I'm five miles away from one, and that's close enough...

I envy you jarhead !!:beer:
Hey Bill, don't envy me. There's lot of work involved with living in the country. My 3 kids hated living in the country when they were younger since they all had chores to do no matter what the weather or when we got home. So it made me think about selling the farm and moving to town so the kids would be closer to their friends. Now that my 2 girls are married and they both married city boys, They are all buying land by me and building their houses. Their husbands are always over at my house helping me do things because they never had a chance to rip the roof off a house and re-shingle it. They never had to castrate a pig or wring the neck off a chicken then clean and cook it. They never were able to step out the back door and shoot a couple of dove for supper that night. My son has been working on the farm all his life and now is working at a summer camp as a counselor. He's showing the maintenance man how to tune and adjust the carb on the mower and rebuild the brakes on the Jonh Deere tractor. So, yeah, its been a lot of work but according to my NOW brilliant chillren.. it's where they want to raise their kids. Who'da thunk it?
