I think the first set of rice cakes would look better to me as beer cans.

From Canada - perhaps notallthere should check this out for us since this is in Mississauga!

How about a GOAT farm? 5 '69 GTO Judges????

My concern would be:

1. How complete are any of these cars?

2. How salvageable are these cars really? Could you build (say) 2-3 real GTO Judges from these Ontario rusted cars?

What not to do to a Fiero.

https://lasvegas.craigslist.org/cto/d/pahrump-trike/7050613174.html

 

$2500

Trike created from a 1985 Pontiac Fiero. Front end is from a Harley Road King (air shocks). Pontiac iron duke engine. Five speed manual. Was originally built by a local diesel mechanic. Alternator and battery new within the last few years. A/C has been converted and has a new compressor and accumulator. It still has a leak. Ran out of money before I could finish it. Heater works, has tilt wheel and power windows. Sun roof. It has the wiring for a radio, but doesn't currently have one.

Starts and runs great. Is a blast to drive and handles well on the highway.

The State of Nevada licenses it as a an assembled vehicle.

Comes with lots of extra Fiero parts and manuals.

That looks like one of the most unstable pieces of stinky stuff I’ve ever seen! Kind of like the guy on the tricycle on Laugh in. Probably only uses it to go to the casino and back!

Wonder if it will pop a wheelie..??

I know what you mean. If it does do a wheelie, how well do you think it will land it? :blink:

Like the silver Lemans...But I really like the Red Eldorado next to it...The big block transverse engine Firebrd really ain't that rare....See them around here all the time but only with a CVT transmission.....Wonder if the tool handle to hold a tap comes with it...

I think this is the rustiest GTO I've ever seen for sale. This one was found on eBay. Poor '68 GTO. I wonder if it can be saved and if it's worth saving. As of this writing, the bid was at $5,000.00.

https://pontiacstreetperformance.com/psp/RockerArms.html


"Complete and all original numbers matching 1968 Pontiac GTO HO 400 4 spd. convertible project car with clean PA title.  Purchased this GTO from the original owner in 2014 and it's been sitting in my garage ever since.  Last time it was on the road was the mid 70's and only has 68,258 miles on it but the owner left it sit outside in the weather for 20 years and is very rusty - the floors, trunk pan, hood, quarter panes etc. need full replacement/restoration.   Engine turns over freely but have not attempted to start it.   Trans and rear are original and appear to be in working order. Frame is rusty and may be salvagable and I have an extra convertable doner frame included with this sale.  Also Included is a new Endura front bumper, 5 pontiac rally rims and all the chrome which came with the car from the factory.  I also have the maintenance paperwork and books that the owner gave me.  Only parts I found missing are the key's, right side door mirror and trunk lock. Car is listed for sale locally so this eBay auction may be canceled at any time.  Feel free to ask questions."

Nothin usable  would come anywhere near $5000.  Engine/ drivetrain maybe rims.  That much rust, ya know anything electrical is shot.  Even hood N decklid are full of dents.

Old Pontiac's never die......they become legends!!!!     Til rust do us part.   Goodbye.

Yeah, you are essentially buying a VIN at this point. Assuming the cowl was in decent shape, that would be all that you would have left of the original car. So much of the rest of the car would have to be replaced. It's would almost becomes a proverbal or automotive equivalent of a Ship of Theseus.
