Default The One That Got Away
Re:: Bawling my eyes out!   

So I'm working in the yard and a neighbor comes over with a deck lid off maybe a 68 and says he knows I work on VW's and thought I'd like to have it. Of course I took it but was curious about what happened to the rest of the car. He tells me he was working on an old lady's roof and she wanted to get rid of the VW's and parts her husband had lying around because he had passed away and she didn't know what to do with them. She was having a junk man come to scrap everything. The cars she was scrapping were 1952 and 1953 Beetles, one with 40,000 original miles. She knew this because she and her husband were the original owners!

After I regained consciousness I asked my neighbor if the scrap man had come yet because if he hadn't I sure would like to contact the lady. "Oh," he said, "that was a year and a half ago. I've just been hanging on to the lid."

Damn.

So I told him if there was any way to get in contact with the lady that I'd like to speak with her. Maybe there are some leftovers in the basement or garage. Who knows. Can't hurt to ask.

I need another box of Kleenex.

He didn't think to tell you about it a year and a half ago?!
