RIP and glad the families at least have some type of closure.
Not to change the subject, but back in the early, early 80's my father bought a 69 SS/RS L34, 4-speed Cortez car but the owner wanted another $500 for the tag, vin & title. Dad passed on the TT & vin (Ahhh hindsight) and that car sat in the back of my parents property up until 2008 when I finally hauled it off to the scrap yard. The engine is in a 69 SS Chevelle of a relative, trans was sold, houndstooth interior was sold, subframe, doghouse & diff used on another project. The only thing left was a shell and it was completely rotten &/or gone. Even used part of the firewall on another car. Needless to say, wish we would have bought the other items originally and just restored that car. Did the same to a 68 Firebird 350 auto car too.. That doesnt include the countless others over the years.. These were just the two that stuck out the most.
