You're not going to Believe THIS was in the Trash!!!


I just dont know what to say... I PICKED THIS UP IN A TRASH PILE ON MY WAY HOME FROM WORK TODAY !!!!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT BECAUSE I SURELY CAN'T ......... I THOUGHT THIS WAS WORTH A SECOND POST FOR THE DAY!!! I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO EXCITED IN MY LIFE!! JUST SCROLL DOWN FOR THE LOWDOWN ON THE DETAILS....

Anyway, there she lay on her stomach piled in trash, someone had busted her back out but thats ok I got all her pieces. I have never put it in reverse so fast, popped the hatch, laid the seats down and slung it in like I was a Man Woman!!! I did not care if the leather on my seats ripped, it just did not matter at this point, she was going in!!!!! Sweating like a Goat I got her in and to a good home. The old cheese cloth was still attahced to the back. Can you feel how excited I am over this, Good Gracious I am a mess. The pics are not that great but I was just too excited I could harly hold the camera still to take the pictures. Off to try to calm down.... Have a good night!!!

Janna, forgot to say thanks for stopping by and leaving the nice comment. I really do love your new treasure...still in shock that somebody would be insane enough to throw our the pie safe...

Can't wait to see Ms. Gracie! Boxers are so funny...Does Gracie twist and turn when she is excited? I love to call Maggie over to me just to see her walk! She is a hoot! Is Scooter a chihuahua? Adorable!

I am laughing out loud as I read your post...Awesome! I can just picture the entire scene and feel like I was there! Actually, the same thing has happened to me before but not a find THIS good (and I scratched the outside of my husband's truck in the mad rush - oops). You'll be smiling for weeks about this one, I'm sure of it! Andrea

It always amazes me the stuff people throw away! I love all things old the more chips and wear in the paint makes my heart melt. I love old worn stuff! There is something so special in knowing that somebody had lots of memories with that piece and now you get to make your own that is so neat!
