Here is something you may never get a chance to see in person. This is a very rare '37 Desoto 4-dr convertible. The local yard owner's son purchased this from an estate here in MN and said something like only 426 of these were made. The deceased owner also had an unrestored Tucker that found a new home in Las Vegas.

Nice! I'd love to see it back on the road again!

I love those old MoPars!

Got to "My Site" for a link to my old MoPar.

That looks like a car that should be restored by Jay Leno's crew, with un-limited funds, and not by some mediocre restoration outfit.

This guy doesn't suffer from lack of funds. He just had a '66 Hemi 4-spd Charger restored. Oh, and I probably shouldn't be sharing this, but this family owned salvage yard was recently appraised and offered for sale for anyone who could come up with $16 Million Dollars! And you thought these yards weren't money makers....

I could see getting a business loan to help cover a million dollar investment. But, 16 million! That's sticking your neck way out on the line.
