No idea how old this is, but I know what I'd do if I won the $650M jackpot!!!

That is pretty cool. I would be tempted to make a run to this place and see what is left. Is it in North Carolina?

I got curious. This place is still in business. I found a forum with a guy who is going down in April to look at a Matador X for $7500.

That would be so cool to have an old dealership like that that specialized in forgotten cars!

This place was featured in Hot Rod magazine past month, I believe.

They SAID Eagles in the video, but I didn't see any. Be interesting to see what kind of parts supply he has.

From what I have read, it is difficult to get inside the building. The older guy just doesn't want to part with a lot of the stuff apparently. They have 4 acres of property and the video really only shows the front and small portion of the back. If you look it up on Google Earth, you can see how big it really is.

I also read that the best cars are kept inside the building. Personal collection I guess.

Actually, if you watch in the beginning it skims over what appeared to be a 4-door?

I stand corrected, just watched it again, pause it at 0:52. Looks like a 2 door with a bumper end cap on the right side still, lol.

Guess my eyes are getting too old. Didn't see it. I'll have to try again.

Everthing I've read stated they are willing to sell rust buckets for top dollar.  So they continue to sit and rot away into oblivion.  Seems kind of stupid.   Plus it looks like no one knows how to use a lawn mower.  Sad, just plain sad.

Looks like a collection of cars that many of us would love to get our hands on and bring back to life.... but seems hard to get hands on them....

If you use google map and the little street view guy, there is a black eagle wagon next to a grand wag and a white eagle wagon on the corner of the property.
