Thats just... Amazing...

Reminds me of a story backin the states. A guy decided to remodel his house after he moved in. Stuck a hammer through the wall tos tart with and found millions of dollars worth of rare paintings hidden inside the walls.

Needless to say the remodeling project took a bit longer then expected... he was busy selling them.

^^^well sad to say I took a hammer and started beating on every wall the only thing I found were the holes I left lol. Makes you wonder how on an island a car can be parked in a garage and never seen again till half a century later?

Go pound some hole sinto your garage, then get a back hoe and start digging in your yard. I'm sure you'll find something.

Back on Ohio

I remember reading in the paper about 30 years ago that a widow in Ohio was selling her house. Her husband had died many years earlier and she had never gone out to his workshop after he died. She sold the house "as is" with everything in it except her personal stuff. The guy who bought it began cleaning out the workshop and discovered that underneath a pile of boxes, lumber and other junk was a completely original 53 corvette with less that 5000 miles (I think), and it was in perfect shape. That car was worth a lot of money back then. I can imagine what it is worth now!!
