How exactly does a deceased person pass away?
 
2021-10-21 6:15:16 PM  
I'd take the Ferrari over the Lamborghini if I had to choose.

The usual means.  Sunlight, stake through the heart.

Absolutely 100% this, Lamborghini would be worth a lot more sold and could be put into the Ferrari and the mg if they chose to restore them

So grandma wasn't speed racer, grandpa owned a rental biz with some exotics and kept a few when he retired. Sounds like she was really close with her folks...

Not to ignore the MG.  We have a '64 Morgan Plus 4 in the garage that needs lots of work.

I'd take either one, because beggars can't be choosers and all that.

It does matter how cool the cars are. You'll never get the old person smell out.
 
2021-10-21 9:14:33 PM  
Thankfully, some other users immediately alerted her to the fact the second car parked in the garage was worth something.

That farking Lamborghini is worth something!

Not gonna lie, when I read 'a pre-War MG' I automatically thought machine gun and that in itself is some $$.

I was always enamored by the Countach when the Cannonball Run movie came out but it doesn't have the same feel for me anymore.  I'd still graciously take anything in this lot, though.

I love my MGB, and am sorta in the market for an MGA..... but for me, it would have to be the Lambo.  I had a 4' poster of a Countach on my bedroom wall in the 80's as a kid.  Freaking love that body style.

Me too! But was really disappointed when I finally got a look inside one, the insides do not match the outside. Pretty boring even.

Growing up, friends dad had one that he tinkered with, we would tinker with, he'd let us take out, etc.

Was a load of fun, but you needed 3 people to take it out. 2 to have fun and look cool in it, and one to drive the recovery vehicle.

Oh my gosh, other people own these? My dad had a '68 Morgan for years. I loved it, but yeah, it always needed something fixed.

I was left a back massager that somehow has retained an odd smell. She must have used it a lot and gripped it hard, as the handle shows a quite a bit of wear.

After sitting in that garage for 30 years, I bet that Lambo runs just as well as when it was stored.

That article was interesting, but not nearly as morbidly bizzare as the one that followed when I kept scrolling.

Can you believe someone apparently paid $110K for the Cybertruck's aborted baby brother?

I wouldn't call them plentiful up here but my dad's buddy Holger has one in Edmonton, and my coworker Dave's dad here in Calgary has one. There are a couple of three wheelers that seem to end up at most of our local car shows, too; pretty neat.

If you're into antique tools, you should PM me for future opportunities. One wall of 4.

holy crap, my step dad would be in heaven; that's rad!

I'm always on the hunt for old wood working tools for him, found some awesome old planes at a Mennonite second hand store in Sask.

Breaker Moran: I'd take the Ferrari over the Lamborghini if I had to choose.


Ehhhhh....that depends.

If it's a carb'ed 308 then yes, you can still buy new Webers.

If it's K-Jetronic then no.  If the fuel distributors in those dry out and get ANY corrosion you're pretty much farked.  Those units can't be rebuilt worth a damm and I seriously doubt you could find a new fuel distributor for a 308.

The Lambo came with Weber 45's.  You could replace all six for under $4K

Father in Law. 2 daughters. He figures they will just have a yard sale, so he put me in charge. Literal heaven if you like woodworking, like Bob Vila wet dream heaven.

When my grandma passed away there was mention of a 427 Shelby Cobra in her will but no one could locate it.

/None of that is even remotely true, except for the passing away part.

When my grandfather passed away, I discovered he owned / we inherited a Herkimer Battle Jitney.  Not sure what to do with it, though.

/I was going to tear it apart and sell it for scrap, but I don't have the necessary tools to even put a dent in it/

Let's see. We're going to inherit a 1999 BMW X3, which is something. And lots of knick knacks, tools, and a bit of alcoholism.

/May have already inherited one of the three

My neighbor had a pantera.  He liked it, but he said everywhere he went cops would follow him waiting for him to do something illegal so it was annoying to drive.

A friend had a bright red late-50's T-bird convertible, fully restored.

When he passed, the inheritance of it caused a major rift between his two adult daughters. I'm not sure they are now on speaking terms.
