new Camaro owner in barn since 1973

in the local classifieds was a 1968 camaro i called set up an appointment to look at it and it was quite an interesting story. To start, the car was sitting in a garage in the small town where i went to high school i drove by it everyday and me nor anyone i know ever knew it was there! The car belonged to a guy who bought it in 1969 he drove it in college until he put it in a ditch in 1973 and drove it until the registration ran out later that year and then put it in his garage waiting to someday fix it. He got busy with life and died of cancer 11 years ago and his wife who dated the owner in college and rode around in the car decided to sell it about a week ago. when i arrived it was some sight the doors to the garage literally had to be broken off the hinges to open since they havent been opened in 37 years. the car looked very neglected but it was virtually brand new it had sunk in the dirt floor a good six inches. the white interior needs a good cleaning but is in great shape and the body is also very rust free but very dented because of the ditch incident... anyways enough rambleing i walked away with a 68 camaro 327 pg turquiose with black vinyl top and white interior for $2,500
