I bought a 70's muscle car in my early 20's in fantastic condition for an extremely low price, so low in fact the guy was begging me to buy it,
money troubles or somthing so i didnt think twice, it came with a showboard and everything.
According to the board it had been re-built from a local wreck from the ground up, there were some pics through various stages etc.
Everything was cool till I took it for a run with the wife and kid. The whole the drive sterio was screwing up, ok must be a short wierd, on the way
back, lights would cut in and out, sterio would do the same. I got it all checked out no problems still got all the fuses done and the loop
After that light bulbs in the house continualy blew and flickered to the point i would buy boxes from the wholesaler, the picture frames on the wall
would all be tilted out of place, you would fix them,leave the room and they would all be screwed again.
All the elements on the stove blew out when the wife was cooking dinner then a power point blew out, after this i got a friend to come and check out
all the electrical wiring, meter box etc. in the house which was 10 years old, still everything was fine.
The car sat in the garage under a cover, now off the road, i pulled it out and washed it took a few pics of it, intending to sell it, got the pics
back and saw faces everywhere in the pics, also what looked like a person in the back seat. anyway thought that was kind of cool something to laugh
about with my friends untill i tried to drive the car 5 hours away to the place where we had moved, now i had got the car completely checked over for
this trip top to bottom wheels, brakes, gear box, fluids done, 20 minutes out of town the car chewed off 3 wheel nuts off the rear wheel i managed to
save the car before the wheel fell off while driving. me and my mechanic were blown away. second time i tried to leave town in it 2 front tyres blew
at the same time in the same spot, i had to get towed back to town.
The car got put in storage for 2 years. new house new town no muscle car no probs.tennants in my house have no probs with anything electrical.
move back to town get the car back, rebuild, new tyres etc. same thing starts again, except now in the garage sometimes when i walk in the cover is on
the car, or half on or if i leave it off i will go in the garage and somedays the car is absolutely caked in dust where you cant see through the
windows and i mean like on some horror movie and there is no dust on anything else then a couple of days later hardly anydust on it, and the feeling
is that you just dont want to be in there with it, i ask my wife if she has been in there and moved the covers, she told me she wont even open the
the car now wont start, sometimes wont go into gear, any battery i put into the garage drains completely i cant put a battery on charge in there and
the feeling in the house now becomes dark and wierd. to get the car out of the garage i have to push it out then back in, when it starts fire shoots
out of the carb, i put a kit through it still does it, change the fuell lines, still does it, car is becoming my nightmare.
When my wife and I broke up the car started and sat there and purred like a kitten, i was stunned it had not done that in years, no lights in the
house flickered or blew.
I sold it.
so believe it or not, coincidence maybe, over a decade stretching it.
