Well it was my first day back at work and Tom Jr had some things for me to do that were not involved or heavy work. He got a call from a Realtor friend of ours that does foreclosures. We were informed that a house in south bury was needing a JUNK CAR REMOVED from the property. I was told the TITLE was in the visor not signed and ready for me to pick it up. We do this for a FEE for a couple of Realtors . What we do is remove the cars and bring them to the Junk Yard. Now this requires a CLEAR NOT SIGNED TITLE. So we have the option of owning the car. The guy told us it was a POS pontiac and wanted it GONE. I pulled up to the house and LOW AND BEHOLD a Firebird. I made a quick call to the Realtor to confirm the VIN# It checked out. Look at what i got. And i am KEEPING IT. MAN WHAT A FIND One of 750 produced.

Man what a find. My heart skipped a BEAT. I loaded it on the truck and showed up back at the shop. Jr came out and asked me if i cleared out the car in south berry. I told him look in the back of the TRUCK. He almost DIED also. These cars are not that fast. Its only a 305 and a 5 Speeder. But the 5 speeder ones were rare. I need another project like a hole in my head but this one is a KEEPER for SURE. I am going to build it stock and restore it. So is GOD MY BUDDY OR WHAT. So what do you think about this THIRD GEN BIRD???? Its rough around the edges but thats no sweat, Peace Tom:bigthumbsup:bigthumbsup

Just for the record i did the TOW AND THE RECOVERY FOR FREE. Hay what the HECK!!!!

THE LORD MUST LOVE ME FOR SURE.:worship:worship
THANK YOU LORD!!

I love free. :bigthumbsupUse to get free MG's for haul off. Sometimes not much left. But now have tons of parts. I say get off the ground on blocks and then decide what to do. Fix it part it or whatever. I will take them all day for that price. I do have a understanding wife. Maurice

Tom congrats on your good fortune! From the title of the thread I figured you had been spared from another broken ladder or a life & death situation, lol. Maybe this is your reward for making it through all of your surgeries. :)

H big C you are correct they did. But from what i could find out the 5 Speeders with T tops only came in 305. Thats why the dam thing is so rare. Its one of 450. Not what i previously posted. But you are correct the PUNY 305 was not the choice of gear heads. So they bought the 5.7 without the T tops. Thanks for the post My Brother. I am actually still researching this car. Like i said its rough and has been outside for a long time. But i cant let it DIE you know me i want to save them all. Now if i could only convince my wife of that. Peace My Brother:bigthumbsup:bigthumbsup
