Wow what a shame that's going to take a lot of money to restore that car

What a damn shame. I guess when it's absorbed back into the earth, it will make everyone's Daytona that much more valuable!

I was going to post this in the original thread on here, but I didn't think you guys would want that.

I have a plan for next year.  Hopefully it comes together to protect this car.

I understand the sentimental value and the memories they have of this car.
I don't think they will ever realistically be able to get the car roadworthy, let alone restored. Its their car they can do what the want. They should at least get a temporary garage or something to protect the car from the elements.

A friend of mine who lives about 10 miles from where the car is parked, offered to let the family store it in his barn, free of charge (along side some very cool Mopars by the way!), but they'd rather let it sit outside in the elements. I don't get it!  brickwall

Best thing would be to help them fix the shed up and just push it back inside

I would think by this time "pushing" it back into the shed may require more effort than you would think!. It would probably be easier to build a shed around it. I'm willing to bet that all 4 wheels are frozen in place....I've moved cars like this before, and it's never as easy as it looks. Just my  Twocents

Unfortunately the garage in which is sits in front of fell in from completely rotting away.  It would have to be torn down and rebuilt from the ground up.

The car is sitting on 4-wheel dollies, but they are rusty now as well.  Either way it would need a flatbed to move it anywhere.



Like I said, things are hopefully changing for the better to at least get it out of the elements.
