It's a real LE (or was anyway). Here's a couple matching pics from a happier time, right after being brought back from the dead. Always wondered what happened to it........guess I saved it for nothing.......it was really a solid car too.Unhappy

Someone know where it is??
 
Maybe a member could pick it up before they crush it!?
$300 offer to the yard?
 
 maybe we take up donations of parts and put it together from all the extra/free stuff we could collect from the members.

Hey Walt, could you let me know which forum had the pics of my old LE? The car went to California when it sold. Would be interesting to see if any more info about it shows up on that forum. Thanks, Scott

The guy that posted the car is from Long Beach. The forum is VWvortex, and I'm on there because I have a 1985 Jetta.

Sad to see it there.
I mean sold from a member here probably to someone who was going to do good things with it and then... it ended up in the boneyard!
Bad deal.

This one needs to be hunted down.
The exterior looks to be in too good of a condition to let it die.
Floors and stuff are common to all our cars but the bosy is Montego only and no one makes repair panels.
Hell I'd put it at the farm and spray the quarters with something to keep them from rusting/rotting anymore!
 
Seriously, someone help us find this one!

A friend told me he saw Torinos in a junk yard near Abilene Tx, so I went and although there was a lot of neat old cars, no Torinos, well there was half of one! There were Rancheros, and Wagons, but everything was pretty picked over or weather ruined. All I saw worth getting was set of knobs for lifting the seat back (hard to find) and possibly some trim or a bumper. Kind of a disappointment. Here's a some shots.

Each of those car pictures takes you to a Picasa album full of pics of that car. Like the '73 Montego in dark blue, click it come to find its a sedan and I wish I could have all those pliable looking door seals and roof rail strips and door panels and B/C pillar trim and so much more.

I've been back & forth, on selling the '79 Squire. I put it on here & the Ranchero forum,& didn't get any interest. I'm not in any dire straits right now, & hope to restore or resto-mod it someday still(unless I get a reasonable offer). I did sell the LTDII parts car, that I was going to use the engine from, for the Squire though.Confused I got to keep some parts off of it before the sale.

Boy, it really hurts to see them like that. Did you notice the maroon GT wagon that had the green Pontiac on top of it? Roof was crushed down, but the side rear 1/4 glass was still intact!!

There were a lot of nice looking salvage cars here online in NJ after Sandy. But then Sandy cars started showing up in the u=pull-its. And then you realize that nothing, and I mean NOTHING is savable on those cars. Maybe sheet metal. But even then, sand and salt into every nook and cranny. And interiors? Forget it. The rank smell of a closed-up seawater soggy car is enough to back you right away.

I'd buy that wagon (location?)in a minute...and yes, I did see all those '67-'68 Cougars going to waste.

I've built several water salvage cars, but all in fresh water. Great results with all of them. Never done a salty, though.

Graham, WA. Says the car was sold, but usually if they don't sell they crush them.
