I was working ground last night and there's a portable looking shed where corvette was. Well today its obvious car is not in shed. I think the guy is retired and might be there so that's the best you get! The 50s truck has moved but still outside. Place is a diaster

Hey Bill I find zig zaging makes it much harder for him to get a bead on you...... unless he's a really good shot ;)

Ok..let me get this straight.  This is the same green tarp pic and car from the very first post ?  Was it moved to another location (looks like a different area) ?  and are you able to approach the family ? Hell I'd be so damn nosy I'd be asking the family if I can just look at it and take pics to share with friends.  ;D

I have a similar story.. well kinda but all the cars are Mopars.  About a dozen of them sitting (rusting away) in an open lot surrounded by a 6 ft chain link fence with that green fencing material to hide them view.  A total shame because I was told the guy won't sell,  and they're 68-70's Chargers, Cuda's and Challengers.   I did take pics of them, but just sad !

Same house but moved about 200 feet. My dad knows him and he owns it with another guy who won't sell it. I need to stop and visit and see if I can get better pics. The barn burnt like 15 years ago and I looked at it when it was sitting at a neighbors. No motor I don't remember any interior being in it but if it was is no account now. He told dad the motor is in the trunk but there is no trunk.. my dad won't admit it but his hearing isn't great either. It am pretty sure its a 66

I can't understand the logic behind people holding on.

Here's my theory: Guy knows he's never gonna fix it, probably can't; but hey he's got something somebody else wants and so it gets him attention. He also thinks he's got one of a kind. And like a little kid, he's got a toy he won't let anybody touch, and loves teasing them when they ask about it.

Since we're talking about Corvettes, here is another heartbreaker for ya! Guys from SW Virginia may already know about this one. My friend told me he found a supposed matching numbers '67 big block roadster. I didn't believe him at first so he ended up giving me the directions to where it was at so I could check it out for myself. Decided to take a drive out there and check it out and lo and behold there it was, a Lynndale blue 67 roadster with a hardtop sitting beside a trailer just sinking into the Virginia mud. My friend ended talking with the owner and the car is not for sale. He did find out that the owner bought the car in the early 70's and ended up having some mechanical problems with it and parked it with the intention of fixing it someday but it never happened. The owner confirmed that it is a tri-power car but my buddy didn't ask if it was an L71 or L68 car. He let my friend look at the car and he said it looks like it is all there with the original paint.  It's a shame to have it sitting out like that. You would at least think he would cover it up. Here are a couple pictures I took of it when I went to see it.

Tarps rapidly accelerate corrosion and more so when a car is parked on soft ground.

Didn't they make that wheel with a spinner as well?

The 'knockoff wheels' in earlier years had a spinner type NUT to retain the wheel.  In '67, they eliminated the 'knockoff' feature, but retained the look/appearance of the KO wheels, but with bolt on functionality.  Knockoffs have been known to 'come off suddenly'... sometimes with disastrous results.. :)

So in 67 did they still have the option for the spinners?

Nope; I think the factory 'spinner' you are referring to, went away with the Knock Off Wheels (I think the government might have been involved as well...  although my memory is frail.. :)   JohnZ probably knows whether that decision to eliminate the KNOCKOFFS was totally within Chevrolet/Corvette or if the government had involvement....
