  • The Ultimate Woods Find - A Classic Saved By A Helicopter

    How far would you go to save a rare classic you love? I've gone to pretty great lengths to obtain a car, or even parts for a car. I remember climbing piles of cars just to get a tiny little interior piece and thinking "man this would suck if these cars fell". Needless to say, in the heat of the moment we don't always use our better judgement!

    Some may remember the early VW Rabbit pictured above that I obtained this past fall. It was saved from a 40 foot high scrap pile and had to be lifted off with a crane! Now it is sitting safely in my garage rolling, stopping, rot free, and almost ready to run! My friends and family all think I'm crazy, but there is just something about saving a car that was so close to death. I'd almost prefer to own a project that has an interesting back story, over one that is slightly cleaner but just bought off of Ebay!

    After reading a blog entry by the guys over at Rod Authority about a remarkable junkyard that was forced to close in Switzerland. I was given a suggestion on Youtube to watch another video by a German fellow that saved an early "Barn Door" VW Bus high up in the mountains. The video starts off like a few "woods-find" videos, deep in the woods, and digging it out of the ground. That alone is pretty cool, but as the video continues, you see they are in the mountains (note the ski lifts in the background), and a helicopter flies in to help. I'll leave the rest of the video for you to watch. But I can assure you there is some great shots in this video!

  • The Original Dukes of Hazzard Charger Auctioned at the 2012 Barrett Jackson Scottsdale

    With all of the hype surrounding this years auction, you may miss a great silver lining. This year Barrett Jackson is auctioning off a number of vehicles for multiple charities. The cars are being donated by car collectors, companies, and even race teams. This makes for an exciting mix of charity cars that one could own this year.

    Dukes Of Hazzard Charger

    One that really piqued our interest is the famed "Original Good Ol' Boy" was being auctioned this year. This car is THE car you saw jumping in the opening credits of the Dukes of Hazzard show. Most any car nut has the vision of that Charger flying across the screen burned into their memory. This car spent most of its life in a junkyard forgotten until a collector had it restored to the original "as jumped" condition. This means, cracked windshield, cement in the trunk, hand painted logos, etc. You could own this piece of history and perfect your best Bo and Luke impression. We can't wait to see what this car will fetch, not only because of it's historical significance; but since it's for a great cause!

    If money was no option, what would you pay for this famous piece of automotive history? We are on the edges of our seats wondering here at Eastwood!
