    My neighbor restored an old V16 Cadillac that he found in a barn somewhere out in Eastern Oregon.
    The motor was miles away up in an old gold mine hooked up to some antique mining equipment.
    After years of hard work restoring it, he would put his wife and kids in the back and then dress up in a vintage chauffeurs hat and coat and drive them to a local burger joint for dinner.
    I thought it was really cool that the motor could run on either 8 or 16 cylinders.

    They have a car show in bend oregon every june or so. On the lawn at drake park.
    I went years ago and there was a guy there with a 1969 Boss 429 Hemi.
    Original paint, and interior which looked better than my 2009 ford's.
    Only had like 120k in milage.
    Said he found it in a old lady's garage in southern oregon. Put away years ago by her husband who passed.
    Damn thing looked only a few years old.

    I was so jealous.
