Do I see a M-M Eterna??? That and the Guardian are basically all that's on my want list.

That is indeed a Miller-Meteor Eterna! Looking forward to seeing more images of that car and this place!

Got a good rear bumper from a 1971/1972 in there somewhere?

This guy will sell parts/cars and was more friendly than most hoarders I've met. Those that ask privately receive specifics of his NE location.



Stick a fork in this '62 - it is done. Front clip isn't usable. Does have a decent set of exterior windshield trim. Interior windshield trim has pitting/light surface rust.



Notice anything out of place yet..?



Jump seats awaiting jumping to a different limo.



Better angle to catch discrepancy? This '62 has '60 fins from the factory! Bizarre. Chalk up another oddball coach.

'40-ish Meteor was converted to a grain truck back in the day, complete with modified cab and a sliding back window. Not much to say about this one - 'cept it had very nice doors. If I had one of these coaches, I'd buy them to have around as back ups.



Another Meteor of the same vintage. Not easy to differentiate ID details when parts are missing. Advantageous restoration project but possible.



Sun wasn't cooperating.



For those that noticed my shots aren't as angled, I've switched to a 25mm lens with a 16:9 size ratio (like a widescreen TV). Huge difference in proximity to cars.

'55 limo donor. I neglected taking more shots after being sidetracked. Whoops.



As already spotted in the panorama~ 1st one I've come across in the wild.



Grill/headlights are gone. Back door glass broken. Still, it isn't rotted and deserved of a restoration. Upon initially laying eyes, it looks really rough. Almost bought the landaus before really looking at savable feasibility...



Interior is pretty intact, albeit storage for other car parts.

I did end up acquiring an unknown set of '60s rollers and interior rear compartment side panels, complete with cast palms.

'57 S&S has more issues than an emo hipster well into adulthood that never went through counseling. She can still feel good in all the right places.



Floors are MIA in their entirety. Still, this is an exceptional parts vehicle. *The back bumper is no longer available.*



Rot in odd places, like the roof. Yet quarters and doors are above average.



Good corner glass and stainless bits abound. I actually own a (spare) titled '57 Superior with a really nice front clip and a good frame. (The front half is all that is left - having been converted to a camper back in the day before the rear was subsequently scrapped when aluminum went up.) Squinting, I can almost see them mated to put this S&S back on the road... Not by my hand however. Other projects are already lined up.

Good bumper ends are always things of beauty.



'67 is an old funeral coach. Largely original and unmolested with only 64k miles clocked.



Cheap window tint really kills the overall look. See that minute amount of rust along the bottom edge of the quarter? Other side has less - and combined comprises all there is.



Runs and drives. Brakes are soft. After paint, this limo needs little other than detailing. For that reason it would make for a very good entry level procar given a $3500 asking price.
