Looks like the salty rain has outdone the salted roads of the east. Just a little surface rust - the Rampside is the best one - Enjoy...Regan Metcalf

2nd picture looks a like a Marina blue on blue 66 Monza convertible with a 140 and factory head rests. Wonder what other goodies are on it?

Don't think I've ever seen a car rust out in the middle of the hoodeye popping smiley
Most of that has not aged well, the pile on the trailer is mainly ballast at this point.

Ahh, those fresh Pacific breezes kiss the vintage metal with a loving salty breath. Very romatic scene.

Has to win a prize of some sort. Worst Rampside perhaps? Chutzpah of the seller?

Looks like he didn't even bother to protect them at all. Mostly junk from what I see in the photos.

I considered going up there to check it out but someone talked me out of it (glad). The stuff is so rusty and in piles that I doubt it has any value beyond scrap. He will likely have to pay to have it removed. Want to bet he asks top dollar for things?

And this is why i am thankful to live in eastern washington ware it doesnt rain that much, and we don't have corosive air. We only get 15 to 20 inches of rain a year. These cars look really bad, i havent saw hoods rust like that before.
