Dumbass tag out for a smoke break, subby?

Assuming the poor sap does find himself a wife, he's going to be wishing within six months that he had his car stuff back and could sell her.

This is not a collection...

It's a junkyard. with cool cars in it.

ONly someone with OCD would call it a collection.

Wow!

Yeah, what a loser. He's not cool like you.

I don't have an interest in cars, but I understand the whole collector thing. Especially at that age, I'd rather have the collection.

Yup. it's a collection of cars, not a car collection.

I think I'm going to look for a wife, and I don't care if she already has a half-dozen kids.

How about great grand kids?

74 year old bachelor whose never been on a date? Excuse me sir, but have you tried fingering your own asshole? You might just really really like it.

Better idea; sell ONE car then die swimming in a sea of hookers

Sounds like you speak from personal experience.
 
2012-08-03 01:45:32 PM
Wow...There are some great cars in there.
Someday once I retire I want a classic mustang (65 or 66) to restore from the ground up.
It will be fun.

lemortede: Wow...There are some great cars in there.


There are cars in there that used to be great. And there are cars in there that could be made great again by restoring them. But, as has been said, this is a junkyard, not a car collection. He has some cool pieces (like the 1960 Datsun Fairlady convertible), but he left them to rot, and now he has a collection of junked cars. Kind of a shame, really.

I'm gonna have to say Jerry had the right idea. Wish I had spent more time with the cars.

Old people my parents always seem to tell me the opposite.

I've never been on a date either, but I'm not quite 74. I'm old enough to bang girls a decade younger than me without getting arrested, though! Haven't done that yet either, mind.

I agree. He should've spent more time maintaining those cars instead of beating his meat.
 
2012-08-03 01:57:54 PM
actually it looks like he should have publicized his 'collection' and desire to sell it LAST YEAR!!!

"I sold off my choice cars last year, and the auctioneer practically gave them away," Andreasen said. "That man didn't know a pickup truck from a car. The guys this time know what we've got here, and they're excited. People who build street rods are going to have a ball."

Once you jettison the wife....
 
2012-08-03 02:10:42 PM
a 74 year old car can be restored to damn near brand new....a 74 year old woman on the other hand.......

The Assistant Controller for our company retired about 7 years ago and did exactly that. He restored an old 64 1/2 so well that some guy offered him so much cash he had to take it. So he used the money to buy and restore another...which again got sold.

Ran into him at lunch a couple of weeks ago. Guy has a full shop and 5 guys working for him now restoring and building up classic steel. (mostly Fords, but he will work on about anything over 40 years old.) He seemed a little perplexed at how - in this economy - his plan for retirement just kind of blossomed out into a full fledged business.

Sounds like a classic case of a guy thinking he's sitting on gold. His stuff is "not for sale -I'm going to restore that one day!". Eventually they (or their descendants) agree to sell the stuff, now that it's all rotted into the ground.
 
2012-08-03 02:33:03 PM
He goes on his first date... "I'm sorry, I only date men with classic cars..."

I wonder what condition those cars were in when he acquired them. Were they junkers then, or did he just park them all and let them rot. He probably turned down offers to buy some of his "valuable" collection over the years because he was "going to fix them up one day."
 
2012-08-03 03:39:11 PM
Later overheard saying, "I've made a huge mistake".

I have a great-uncle in Nevada who's done a lot of business with him. The money he made off this guy probably paid for him and my aunt to travel around the world.

At his age, he'd probably settle for just mediocre.

I've been married and I've owned a collection of junk cars.


I'm only 32 and I would prefer the cars any day of the week.

Keep the cars dude, and find a woman thats OK with you tinkering with them. (you probably wont find her, but its worth a shot before you sell everything for a couple grand.)
