Hi all newbie here to the site, but not new to the industry. My name is Bill, from Staten Island NY. In 1988 I was trying to purchase a local car that was known to be sitting for a year or two at that time (1988) it was a gold black vinyl top rally sport camaro with black interior it had the spoiler package and I had recalled an after market hood tach. Once a month I would drive by and knock on the door and leave a message requesting to buy the car when and if it were for sale. Finally one day a young woman answered the door obviously pregnant and said that she had received my requests but that the car was her husbands and he would never sell it, but if it were up to her she would. Well I never got the call. Fast forward 30 years later. Searching the web not like my old ways like going to 711 and buying the special interest paper, or car buyers magazines, I found an online ad for a 1970 gold rally sport in Brooklyn NY, So I called and went to see the car. Wow to my surprise I met a young man indicating that his Dads who had given him the car to fix up for himself. The young man walked me to the garage and said well there she is. I started laughing and the kid said what’s so funny and I told him the story about remembering chasing after a car for purchase very similar to no avail. I told him the car was originally in Staten Island he just looked at me and said yeah so did this one my mom and dad used to live there and this was there car. I then took a closer look and sa the hood tach and the vinyl top and said NO WAY! I was looking at the same car thirty years later. It looked a bit tattered and he had removed all the chrome/emblems and began prepping the body but never started the car in the last thirty years he said. I laughed again and then realized he was the pregnant woman’s baby................ He called his mom to her disbelief and then I told him exactly where the car was and then she remembered me bothering at least twice a month for the car. I met his dad and he sold me the car as it was. Non running partially apart but I got with it all documentation from the window sticker/owners manual and more The body surface has rust but the trunk,floors,undercarriage is extremely solid along with the doorjambs and rocker panels......... only upset a sunroof but not missing a single part.
