Until somebody pops them off and walks away with them.

I buy lots of rare parts at swap meets or estate sales, however, this one sticks out the most. I was driving to someone's house to pick up a 1967 Camaro deluxe back seat setup. Along the way, someone was having a yard sale and I couldn't believe what I saw sitting on the table beside the road. I even took a photo because no one was going to believe it. I bet everyone heard my brakes lock up. 1967 Corvette 435hp tri power setup with poorly restored carburetors that look like someone did them in the 80's. Asked him what else he had and also got some NOS 1980's 3rd gen Camaro Z28 parts.

----1967 style. Can't quite tell by looking at the pic weather its 400 or 435 manifold. At least tell us weather you bought the stuff or not!......Bill S

I love circle car swap meets. Used to go to the old Santé Fe race track swap up near Chicago. The one at the Lasalle IL combination drive-in theatre/circle track was also killer. Always bought a space just to get in early at both. Even used to subscribe to an East Coast oval track newspaper that covered the whole US just for their end of year swap listings. Also subscribed to a couple of others that covered Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. Oval track racers were the only guys still parting out old cars when most everyone else was trying to put them back together.

A guy I worked with told me I needed to go by an estate sale after work. I didn't want to, but I did anyway. It was mostly just a bunch of common household stuff, but at the bottom of a cardboard box was a Quadra Jet with a Ford tag on it. I knew right away that it was a '71 429 Cobra Jet carburetor. I got it for $10.

When I was young (like 14) my family and I were coming back from a soccer game when my dad really had to use the bathroom. We pull over on the side of the road and my dad hops out and runs into the woods to take a leak. He comes back a few minutes later carrying a steering column. I could see it was a tilt right away and upon further inspection, it was a 63 64 Impala automatic tilt. Literally just laying in the woods. It wasn't super nice obviously but it was rebuildable. I asked my dad if there was any other parts in the woods and he said he looked, there was nothing else. Seriously, what's the odds?

That is certainly a strange place!
