Might be a mafia dumping area, a pond 20 feet deep was found to be hiding one car, and many barrels, on the bottom. A body was found in the car… no word yet on if there are body parts in the barrels.

August 17th, 2017 by admin

On Aug. 15, divers contracted by Michigan Department of Transportation to clear a pond of barrels of unknown origin found what seems to be a 73 Buick Electra 225 with human remains inside at the waters’ bottom.

By the week’s end, forensic scientists will examine the remains to determine who the person was, police said.

The man-made, 20-foot-deep pond is located between I-75 and Saginaw Auto Recyclers.

It was created sometime during the construction of the nearby Zilwaukee Bridge, said MDOT spokesperson Jocelyn Hall. That time frame places the pond as being built between 1979 and 1988.

this makes the 4th car I’ve posted about that was found underwater with a body in it…

A 69 Coronet was pulled out of a Florida canal, two teens went off a road after a concert in 78.
A lake in Oklahoma had a couple cars pulled out, both had simply went straight instead of around the corner, a 69 Camaro and a 55 Chev, bodies still inside.
And a 68 Catalina missing since 72 in a fishing lake in North Carolina

Because they forgot why police cars are supposed to be seen and noticed…

I posted a white cop car with silver decals before, I just can’t find it among the nearly 30000 posts… so, time to post a new example.

Thanks Andy

The news broke this morning that a major Chinese automaker had made an offer to purchase FCA for slightly above market value. FCA refused, saying the offer wasn’t quite generous enough.

I’ve seen some goofy kids bikes from the 70s, but one with a springer front end? The Murray King Kat is one I’ve never seen before

Guess what this crazy thing is…..

A prototype /

I was emailed by a car model maker who wanted to know about the Howard Hughes Duesenburg he modified to tow gliders, and learned he has the only 1958 Moskvitch in the USA, and wow, what a story

August 11th, 2017 by admin

a retiring sea captain bought a 1958 Moskvitch in Amsterdam, and had it shipped to Los Angeles, where the customs guys bounced it right back… nothing was SAE approved… no lights, electrical, or glass.

But when some Mongo went to forklift it back onto the ship, both forks went into the doors.

Maybe it was a reaction to the Sputnik fear. Who knows.

But the car was taken to a repair shop in Ensenada before the ship headed back to return the car to point of origin, and was going to get the doors fixed.

But it was stolen, and driven into LA. Yeah, complete opposite of what happens to cars in LA, when stolen, and taken to Tijuana.

It was stripped and abandoned in LA, and the cops impounded the hulk, and it went to a junkyard. The junkyard operator thought it was kinda neat, got it running (remember, it was barely ever used since being bought) and when some DMV employee friend asked to borrow a car, and this was the best option in the junkyard, the DMV guy got some paperwork to make the car legal.

Later, another acquaintence in AAA did a paperwork trick to make the car legal, and the Moskvitch was suddenly a legit California titled car.

So it was occassionally used as a backup or loaner car, but as years passed, it sat in the junkyard and rusted. Just hanging out in a corner. Until the junkyard was finally closed as the operator retired, and moved to Hemet (between Riverside and San Diego on the I 15) when it was finally put up for sale in the newspaper.

Then it was finally acquired by Gary, who took it with him when transferred to a new job in Texas, and diligently restored it, even when it was part of a sudden disappearance of all the cars in the paint shop as the owner went out of business, and was found miles away in a barn… and then finally Gary took it to car shows. Such as the one on an Air Force base… where someone freaked out that Gary may have mentioned he was in frequent contact with a parts supplier of communist political affiliation (this was the 80s and cold war paranoia was nuts, just look at the goofy movies we made about that whole era) and the FBI stopped by to ask some questions.

Obviously, the FBI agents realized what a gaffe had been made, laughed it off, and Gary has continued to bring his 1958 Russian car to concours condition the hard way in the many years since 1981.

And since I’m in a hurry to tell you this story instead of waiting for him to email me some photos, I’ll just post this right now. Photos to come later, I hope.

Country Classic Cars, along an old section of Route 66 in Staunton, Illinois, burned down last night (thanks for the tip Mark!)

Firefighters got the call after 8pm last night. Authorities say when the first crews arrived, the building was already fully engulfed.
