Good news happens!
My friend and I were recently given a tip on an AS by someone who knows we are hobby restorers. When my friend called me and told me of the '70 27' Int'l at a recycling yard....I was ready to go get her. After we looked through it, spoke to the folks at the recycle place....things didn't seem right...or the deal seemed too good to be true. Things that were odd;
1. address on mail inside didn't corespond with the sad story of how it got there.
2. id tag had been removed
3. back right quarter had been hacked up with a skill saw to gain access to inverter
4. what DA would take $500 for an AS as scrap?
5. we quizzed all the folks there again asking who, how, where and felt like they story didn't add up.
After arriving home my buddy opened the phone book, found a listing that matched the the name on the mail and called. The lady on the other end was VERY glad as the the AS had been missing for 2 months....the AS belonged to her father....an Army vet who is about to pass....I think they we be able to recover the unit, and I hope the police will be able to put the degenerates responsible behind bars.....but we ddi save one from the crusher today!
