    My 56 sat behind my parents house for many years and in my barn for 28 years before it hit the road.

    Whats the deal with these guys, with the tri-five nomads?I have a buddy who has one in great orig condition covered with a tarp, with in bulding that has no doors on it. Every 20 years or so he gets it out uncovers it and says "roofs gettin bad again"the roof has a "dry state" tarp; so water goes right thru it,He is a good guy but , in my estimation "dumber than box of rocks" Saddest part is the rest of the kar [in its entierty] is stil new. Its 55 and he has a everything for it.funny thing my wife jus told me this am,"gomers on a one man scooter now" hes in fla retired. If you would ever met him .if you are 6'6" you'd have to look up at him to talk to.... him"big lots of muscles When hes says "no i won't sell it"
    i feel sorry for the kar he has others.too bad isn't it bob

    I can't tell you how many cars I have stopped by year after year and asked about selling it. Once, I got tired of asking and took a picture of a finished car that started much like the owners pile of rotting steel, knocked on door only to be met by the wife. I inquired about the car and she replied he always intended to restore it, I told him to sell it and now he's gone. Will you just get it off the property please. I kept the picture to myself, kindly removed it from her property and disposed of it as scrap.

    Bob, I'm sure the car could be bought at the right price. Almost anything has a price at which it could be bought, but it might not be what you think it's worth. If you want it, make him an offer...if he won't take it, keep raising the price. I'll guarantee he will sell it. Same goes for you, Toon. Try it. And if he decides he won't sell it at any price, I guess that's his choice, but I'll bet he will.

    Mine hasn't been on the road since 1973 when I bought it for $550. But it's ALWAYS been indoors in dry storage. It's mine, and I can do with it what I want. If I decided to take it to a crusher tomorrow, I think that would be my prerogative. There's no law on the books for "car cruelty" that I know of.

    I have ZERO intentions of selling my car. It's NOT for sale, and my position TODAY is that it never will be. Now if someone offered me a REALLY stupid price for it, who knows....I might sell it.

    I'm thinking mine will be painted this year, and at least partially assembled. I just bought 4 slightly different cans of paint so I can choose a final color, and then finalize my second exterior color and interior leather colors. The interior construction is about 50% completed....maybe more. I've tried to do as much as I can before paint so the assembly goes quicker. And it's NOT for sale.

    I have a neighbor who keeps trying to get my 57 for nothing and complains it's rotting....I have an easy cure for him.If it bugs him so much I will gladly accept donations to restore it.Anyone who knows me very well knows,if my tri-fives are leaving then I must be dead.
