They told him that he couldn’t find any more cars in Midland, Texas. This week, Tom Cotter hits the oil country highways to prove them wrong. Drawn in by the rusty bones of an old Torino, Tom investigates the pickings of a fellow car guy, among which is a 1972 Dodge Charger housing a 318-cubic-inch engine that, after some gentle prodding, slowly coughs to life. Cold calls come next, and soon Tom visits a woman who proudly imparts the history behind each hollowed-out shell in her yard, from an engine-less 1957 Thunderbird drag car to a VW Beetle with a Ford V-8. Touring through her garden of drag metal and classic iron, Tom turns up a McLaren Mustang convertible, the body of a 1963 Econoline Van, and a half-restored 1977 Chevy Blazer, each with a story-and a price.

my heart flutter and i get teary eyed when the start and purr!
What u expect it to have a motor and everything? Well yes it came with one.
Tom, keep them coming. Great show.
I'd be down for that Trino.
"they have a thing called Ebay and Yahoo." Damn she lives far from Silicon Valley.
Most of these old disgusting people should probably put that money into weight loss and Health Management and maybe a nicer place to live then letting old good stuff rot and rust and being hoarders that are disgusting and probably smell like cat litter I mean these people he meets our trash living on welfare with food stamps old trash sell it and help this country instead of being a piece of fat garbage I can't even take care of themselves how are they going to take care of an old car
It sucks. I have the skills and will to build a car. I just don't have the money to buy one or a garage to build it in. It's hard enough to fix my daily driver in my driveway.
That's my kinda woman. She knows her stuff and likes to go fast
it amazes me how all these classics are always just scattered in a field and not parked in rows. Love watching these vids!!!!
Is the 70 Ford Torino GT still for sell
They need to give that lady a series!
Yeah, cash for clunkers took a devastating toll .
I would love to meet a gorgeous texan car gal and move from England to make her happy. call me

But ya know, they have a thang called, ebay, and yahoo…………………………I literally just DIED!!!!!!!!! LMFAO
