I was given a lead on a stash of "old cars" sitting in a barn/steel building. I followed up and made the connection. I showed up and was met by an elderly man who proceeded to tell me most of his impressive life story including serving in the Isreali army at 17 and  moving to the US in his early 20's with only $5 in his pocket... Within 10 years, he had built a thriving egg empire, delivering eggs to area markets. His first "nice" purchase was a 1951 Cadillac Coupe DeVille. A couple years later he purchased a 47 Cadillac Fleetwood sedan. His last classic purchase was a 1936 Chevy pick up truck to advertise his eggs and make small, local deliveries. His son usually drove this truck and often used it for high school celebrations and local parades. He also purchased Mercedes-Benz as his primary drivers, usually one for the family and one for he and his wife. The most recent set that he parked about 5 years ago is a 1985 500SEL in medium blue over grey leather and a matching 500SEC. They are both in very nice condition.

   The plan is to drag each of these out of the garage in the next few weeks and get them cleaned up and maybe even turned over/started.He believes the last time either of the Caddies or the Chevy were on the road was mid 90's... More... Coming soon...
