Hey guys, while on a motorcycle ride to memorialize my sisters passing last year on the same ride, I stopped off in this little town and as I have done since I was a child with my father, I cruised these little backroads (some paved, some dirt... some a sort of combination) and as I was doing this, I came across a silver metallic Bradley GT hidden halfway under what was once a haybale house... essentially a tin roof with all sides open but from what I could tell the Bradley had been pretty well protected. Now, being that I’m not fond of being shot, I didn’t touch the car although I did venture into the property to get a better look and some pictures. A little backstory on me is that for my entire childhood and much of my early adult years, my father was the owner/operator of a well known independent Volkswagen and European auto shop here in Utah. So, I knew what I was looking at, pretty much what to look for and to be honest, I liked what I saw. My question to you guys is what to offer the current owner (if he’ll part with it) I don’t want to lowball him because I’m sure he has some emotional attachment to it or it probably wouldn’t be there. However, in its current state I don’t want to get carried away. If I can attach pics to this thread I will try... but my thought was to offer $500 firm. Now... how we get to that number is always up in the air. But that’s where I think I can make a go of this thing. It obviously doesn’t run, but I have the knowledge and willpower (and probably a good chunk of parts) to make that problem go away. As nice as it is, I don’t know how much I want to change it, but as we all know that’s just what we say in the beginning lol. So... am I way off the mark here? Keep in mind that this car 100 miles in any direction from a real city, so if I don’t get it out of there, it may never find daylight and pavement again. Still. I will value any input and any questions would also be appreciated... even if I don’t have the answers. Thanks 🙏. PS. I was in a severe accident of my own a month and a half ago and they say I may not walk for a year... so, I need a project or I’m gonna lose my sanity. I’m just wondering if this is the one... I can’t get it out of my mind.
