N NJ owned by Charles P and later Cesear Malaret from Washington NJ

440-4BBL car.  Charlie P**** is my neighbor and told me stories about the car.  Sold it to Caesar in the early 80's.  I spoke to Caesar about 15 - 20 years ago about possibly purchasing the bird for a hansom sum of cash and he wasn't interested.  Just said if he sold it to me, then what would he have?  I told him a hell of a lot of cash but it didn't matter.  I recall the last time I saw the car, Caesar had a clothes line tied from his back porch to the wing!  Wish I had a camera for that one.   2 wheels of the bird were sitting on concrete or asphalt walkway and the other 2 were buried deep in the mud.  Funny thing is he has a garage out back with a boat stored in it.

If it's the same Cesar Malaret Sr. of Washington NJ, well he be gone. Passed away in 1995.  Maybe the reason it's still there and the house looks abandoned.  Could be in some family probate.

Amazing to see the same junk debris undisturbed around the car as the foliage has completely taken over the yard.

Looking at the driveway, I doubt anyone is currently living there.   It appears someone cuts the grass every so often with one of the two riding mowers left outside.

A lot of people complain about cars in the elements but I wonder if anyone thought to buy the owner a tarp.  I have had some owners say no but I still buy tarps for three cars I may never own 2 70 Cuda's and a 69 Road Runner.  Every year I stop by to visit each place and replace the tarp.  I have been doing this on cars since the late 80's  I got permission to raise them up in the air and put tarps on them.  I even got permission to remove the carpet on the two Cuda's. Only thing I asked in return was that I could put my contact information in the car and asked if they would think of me if they ever decide to sell.  It took almost twenty-five years but that is how I got one of my Plymouth convertibles.  Got a call from the owner to come get my car, he had sold the farm and if I would give him what I had offered in the past it was mine.  He said it would be scrap anyway if I wouldn't have raised and cover it.  For years he told me he would never sell the car but he liked the idea of me stopping every year to put on a new tarp and give him the old one to cover up one of his tractors.  Sometimes you get them sometimes you don't.  But I have got some cars from the family after the owner died because my contact info and offer was still in the car.  Tarping not only can save a car if also keeps it hidden.

No surprise what people do in regards to ignoring an old classic worth some money. I personally know someone in his 50's now who has a two car garage & in one bay has an early to mid 70's VW Beetle in it. The car was & is shit, it's rotted, rodent infested, probably used as a litterbox too. There is nothing that makes it special or rare except it was his uncle's car at one time & I don't even think he was the original owner.

In the other bay is a pile of dirt.  Roll Eyes

Yes, dirt from a hole in the ground. Dirt that this guy's Dad had dumped there in the early 90's that was supposed to be used for a backyard project that never got started. The dirt was still in there last I knew about a year ago.

Now here's the kicker. The guy also has a 1969 RT/SE Charger, a 1965 Satellite with a modified 440 & a variety of other worthless crap that I don't even remember what it is, all outside in the elements & sinking into the earth. The Charger has been off the road since the mid 80's & has been sitting in a space next to a barn at another friend's house since then. The Satellite was a nice, running & driving car that was on the road, but now sitting since my 21 year old son was still in a car seat.   eyes

Nothing is for sale, never will be & never will ever see the road again.

Hey Scott-
In looking at your screen name-here is a picture you might like. Posted at Watson Lake Yukon Territory when I drove to Alaska a couple of years ago.
