    This was an "offsite" auction, meaning that the car wasn't at Copart. They might be familiar with Copart and wanted to try selling it there because it's fairly easy to export through Copart processes, which brings international buyers. It's a clean title car so it would be like any of us selling a car there.

    Wow - some good finds there. That 323 looks like it would be a blast to toss around if it cleans up.

    EDIT: It occurs to me that if I had more means, and more space, I would have way too many projects in the works.

    Intense strip. Maybe an intriguing base for a restoration--lots of plug and play if you can find the parts, except for the big hole in the support! Guessing they really wanted the trunk lid intact and couldn't pop it? https://www.copart.com/lot/20432806

    If you look past some really rough items, this looks like a pretty cool car, Dan. Say, what is up with the top of the dash under the wind shield? It almost looks like it is all distorted and warped. Fire under the dash?

    If you go to the auction page and click on the "HD" at the bottom of the photo you can zoom in. These cars were notorious for dashes coming apart in the sunlight/heat. Leather or faux-leather.

    Thanks! I was using the HD feature, but looking at the images on my phone (which probably erases any higher definition). Wow - it is really wonky (the dash). Still cool, though...

    That S38 is looking awfully tempting. Although it does not look like this car was owned by the lady old lady from Pasadena.

    Coworker and I debated the purpose of the front side clamps on that E12 the other day — camera bases, worst hood fasteners ever, diplomatic flag posts, gun mounts, something for towing or storage we didn’t understand?

    All great options Jay. I can't decide a favorite.

    Off topic - is that a newer wrangler latch? It doesn't look like my wife's 2009 JK... No need to answer. :confused:
