Wish I had known about the Sanctuary sooner!
« on: November 09, 2015, 08:00:25 PM »
had an 81.5 SX/4 sport that i had purchased just for a few parts. It was rotting away in my uncles backyard for a number of years before he sent it to the scrap yard...

But anyway I don't know if this is the proper place to post this but awhile back (probably 2010) I posted a thread in the old forum about a lot located near my college with at least 30 vehicles. MOST of them Eagles! and if i recall correctly they were all in very good condition. I remember there also being a couple Grand Wagoneers, a Rambler and maybe 4 or 5 other various cars. The cars were parked on both sides of an old house in downtown Lima, Ohio. I went to the property to take some photos and a man came out telling me to leave. All i could get out of him was that the cars belonged to his father-in-law and that they weren't for sale. I don't know the current status of this lot but it always broke my heart to drive past it and see all those beautiful eagles sitting just awaiting their demise. In my mind i had always fantasized a bunch of us getting together with trailers and flatbeds, showing up to the spot to rescue them and take them somewhere they could be restored/appreciated. I currently cant find any of those photos i had taken but ill keep looking and post them on here if i do. The last time i saw the place was late 2011...

I've done this before...I've found out the location of where I passed Ramblers, called, even wrote a letter explaining if you would or wouldn't sell yet, please don't crush them for they are being survived and restored. I also put in there, they aren't worth a lot of money, but MORE than scrap price. :) 8)
