at one time, i owned two 68 buick specials/skylarks. one four door and one two door. the four door was beautiful the interior was perfect, as was the paintjob and i actually won trophies with it at car shows! i loved this car, i honestly did.
i drove it for four years before buying somthing newer, and leaving it parked by my buddies garage, at the same time i also had a two door skylark, and it was also sitting next to my buddies garage, one day he told me, You have to move those cars", "i cant have them sitting here.........so another friend has a cow farm and said i could put them there for storage..........ok cool.
in the meantime, i had sold the four door, so i just had the two door left. it neede alot of work, but it was NOT beyond repair. she needed a driver door skin, and quarter panel. the interior was perfect....so i thought, "ok, ill let it sit there until i can get rolling on it.
11 years have rolled by now.............i had someone interested in buying the car for parts.....so it was pretty much sold! until i went and looked at it! LOL
heres what she looks like now after sitting under the powerlines and acting as a scratching post for the cows for over a decade~
I HONESTLY WANTED TO CRY!!!
