Old Matt is good at digging out some sleepers

Iím not sure you end up leaving several hundred thousand dollars around?

But, I would like to hear the story.

Just amazing!  Would so love to know the story behind all of this.  Looks like it used to be a beautiful home.  How does it get in such disrepair?

Just looked in my files, have some photos from a while back, when was it found ? Special Ed mentions he saw it at a show.

As Corey says, you wonder what the human story is behind it ?

I'm sure it's a conversation piece as-is, but I personally could not leave it looking like that and would have to restore it.

Is there any particular reason why they didn't raise the hood in the video?
