Honestly she did him a favour. A frame off restoration of a 4 door 67 impala? After investing $60K you would be lucky to have a car worth 20K when you are done.

Not everything has to be about financial gain.  Sometimes people do it to keep themselves busy.  Other people like to make something appealing.  Different strokes for different folks.

Earlier this year, he and the Chevy moved to a two-acre property with a 2.5-car garage, which the disassembled Impala quickly took up, its body in one bay, the frame in the other, and parts everywhere else. Shortly thereafter, his girlfriend moved in, and that's when the trouble began.

Technically, you can't sell a vehicle you don't have the title to.
Power of attorney and lien holders  excluded.

The sale is void and the EX is liable to prosecution.

fark her.
GTA charges, and conviction.
Full felony record.
And make her refund him a restored one from hemmings auction.
And a lifetime restraining order.
Fyck her.

My ex got what she deserved for farking me out of a classic.

Ruin her, man.

So I was home alone once (as a grown ass adult, mind you, over thirty years old) and the scrap man dropped by. I don't even remember his name, he was just a local townie who'd come get scrap and such off you so you didn't have to make the effort to deal with it yourself. In this case, my brother had called him to pick up some car project stuff. My brother was not home. My brother's RX7 was visible in the backyard, parked on a concrete pad partly covered.

This stupid bastard saw the RX7 and was like... what's the story there. And I tell him it's a pretty cherry '89 but my brother popped the rotor seals so it's standing by for a rebuild.

And this man looks at me and goes, "You know it's only worth scrap cost right?"

And I looked at him and went, "You know my brother owns an armory right?"

He went on his way. I relayed this later to my brother, whose scoff was half amusement, half righteous fury.

/to this day, I wonder how stupid that man thought I was
/real stupid for no other reason than I have tits

Oh.  I can top that.  My family bought property on an Indian reservation up in the Wisconsin Northwoods.  The place came with everything included because the owner died and nobody cared.  In the 4 car garage (yeah, you do not expect that on a res) there were three Porsche 914s in decent states but needing work.  They are not the best of cars, but they are very, very fun to drive and my first car was a 914.  So naturally I would go up there to work on them.  Then my sister got involved:

The day before Illinois ordered people to stay at home my sister and her family fled to the WI home (still there).  About a month later she wrote me a letter saying how they are being persecuted for driving about with Illinois plates and needed to buy vehicles with Wisconsin plates and hide the IL vehicles in the garage.  Here is your check for $500.00 for the 914s.

Horrible sister.

Back @ 2000, a woman was sitting in the neighboring cube telling one of my co-workers about how her husband had an entire room full of guns and hunting equipment, and when he went away on this 3 week business trip, she was going to sell it all off.  I popped my head in to tell her to prepare to get divorced, but she claimed that he loved her too much.  I laughed.  Several of my co-workers thought I was being mean.

About a month later she's crying in the same co-worker's cube about how he came home, saw that his stuff was gone, turned around and walked out.  Without even unpacking his suit case.

There are cars US manufacturers use to build because like a Nomad they were simply cool to build and got folks attention even if they didn't buy them in big numbers.  Now days we get trucks and jacked up station wagons as they think they can make a few more bucks more than building a Cruze or CTS-V that are solid cars.  But folks buy jacked up station wagons.  Station wagons are cool.  I was raised riding around in a 66 Nova wagon but.. Give us a choice please.

/yes my car and truck both are manual transmission

Pretty much. It destroys the intrinsic trust needed in a relationship when you leave for a bit and someone sells everything you need for your hobby. The hobby you have to keep you sane. If the tables were turned, and a husband or boyfriend sold something the wife or girlfriend cared about, you would never hear from them again.

"Have you seen Jim?" "No... I guess not. Not since he said he was going to throw away his wife's quilting stuff because they took up too much room... that was about two months ago."

It's probably a good thing the guy didn't have some firearms that she got the stink eye about, and decided to find a shady dealer to sell them to. From the article, one of the people at the salvage yard has already been arrested, and they're investigating them further to see if any other missing vehicles turn up.

The ex needs to be prosecuted for theft of property, which she is. The salvage yard is under investigation, and one person has been arrested. So that's good. But as I was saying, if it would've been firearms she sold to a shady bastard, the BATFE would be involved in this as well, so she was lucky it was just a car.

Long story short: DON'T SELL OR GIVEAWAY THE POSSESSIONS OF SOMEONE YOU CARE ABOUT! Or anyone else for that matter. If it's not yours, if you didn't pay for it, it's not yours to sell, give away, or throw away. If it bugs you that much, then you need to talk to the person that owns it.

Yes, all correct. However i think a person willing to perpetrate such a violation of trust on an SO is the type of person who demands 100% attention and adoration from their SO and see said w/e hobby as some sort of mortal enemy. They think that if they remove the offending items that their SO will just straight up worshipping them 24/7 like they want.

It's not the kind of mental reasoning where logic is involved much.

You're very wrong this time.

This is a Metallicar, a tribute to the hero car, "Baby", of the 15 year TV series Supernatural.

Before this series, it was easy to find a 67 Impala 4 door hardtop for a couple thousand dollars in pretty good condition.  Now clapped out junkers go for 6k and up, a good runner sells for $20,000, and a fully restored, faithfully executed Baby can very easily bring $60,000 and up.

It was always the 2 door cars that got all the collector interest before this show.  But for this one car, this one model year, the 4 door hardtop, (and NOT the 4 door sedan or wagon) values are crazy.

My wife has NO interest in cars, especially classic cars, and she wants one.  She's already told me that if I find a restorable car, I should buy it, and she's ok with me dropping $40,000 on the build no questions asked, and more if we discuss and budget for it.  There's no way I'm doing that, but she's deadly serious about it.

Sounds like you havesome serious family issues at play. I don't know enough about your situation to suggest any particular course of action, nor do i assume you'd care to hear said suggestion, but i will relate to you this wisdom: blood is not, indeed, thicker than water. You can't choose who you are related to, but life gets much easier when you choose who you relate to.

I've been restoring/modding a 74 Jeep Cherokee for wheeling/fun and needed some various parts. Like anything else vintage, you search and search, hoping to not overpay and hoping to just get lucky.
One day, me and the fam are going for a summer drive. About 10 miles out of town, the misses noticed a bunch of older Jeeps parked off the road a decent distance--you wouldn't really notice it from the road anyways--so I'd never seen it.
Two of them fit the donor profile I need, so I turn around to go chat with the property owner. It's an old homestead house--run down, super-rednecky, but what do I care?  Tell him what I'm doing and if he's interested in selling any parts off the Jeep. Guy is totally nonchalant, says 'Go right ahead', but only asks that I negotiate prices before pulling parts.
I eventually make three trips out there for various parts, paying a TENTH of regular/market prices.

6 months later, I need something else and go back out. The Jeeps are moved back a little, but still accessible. The old house is still there, but shuttered, while a new modular office-looking building greets you instead.
Knock on the door, and this slacks/polo guy answers the door--not the same guy at all--and I explain the previous arrangement and ask if I can grab some more parts.
Guys SCOWLS at me....like wanting to rip my arms off and beat me kinda scowl.
"Those weren't his Jeeps to sell. He was just living on my property as a favor."
I showed my shocked face.
Inside, I was dying laughing.
I'm a BSer, so chat all friendly like and ask him for details. Turns out, after my visit, guy went full-on used parts lot and just started selling it all--some very vintage parts and even full vehicles--and just pocketing the money.
