    What you might call a survivor

    This story was doing the rounds a little while ago but for anybody who hasn't seen it ...

    You see a lot of dubious low mileage cars these days given the "survivor" tag but I think this '50 Chevy Coupe is definitely worthy of it ... sold for $60k at Barrett Jackson in January .

    Not a survivor in hot rod terms. But yes it is a mint stocker with factory extras. What is a real shame is that you've got a 60 year old car with no history, no stories, when I look at an old chevy or ford I wonder where its miles came from. Was it driven across the plains or desert, was it used to pic up girls at the drive thru. Was someones high school ride. What you've got there is a very very nice car which id love to own. But sorry there nothing cool or survivor about a car that spent 60 year in a show room or lock up

    I have to agree with Vince , it's the history behind the miles that interests me. When I had my old Chevy truck, it had a sense of history ...of 'being' . Marian prefers unrestrored cars ( as we often use classics for dailies) rather than spotless restos and is into conservation rather than restoration.

    On the other hand it nice however to be the one creating that history as well though, that even a scratchbuilt motor will one day acquire .After all , all those old hot rods were once new, and then newly modified, in the past.

    Yep, no soul.

    Which is exactly why it needs a damn good chopping ! And lowering, and frenched lights and a lanky striper behind the wheel with a big grin on his face !

    every mile driven devalues it ....... in cash terms.......it's gona end up in a static display and being pushed on and off trailers just in case the odometer rack up the odd mile or so!

    what a shame
