what the f$#@!?! Nice of them to put that in the ad. She would need a whole nother car for the roof, to piece her back together. It would be a cool car to do, but she is gonna need a lot of $$. The front fenders look like there toasted as well....
Wait a minute, all is not lost here. I have everything someone would need to fix this car and I would sell it cheap. Countrybunker can back me up on this. Some one with some welding and fab skills could have a Blumo cheap. Hell I'm tempted to buy it to fix and flip.

Spanks isnt fooling around guys! He has a '74 parts car with a perfect roof for this one. I just picked up the driver side back half section from him for my car. This would be a perfect match! If my hands werent already full with my car, i'd seriously be considering this one!!

Im just waiting on the guy to get back to me, I'm still probably buying it, the roof is a set back but not the end of the world. I can jack it up and clip a roof on it. I figure the nose alone is worth the price and shipping to me. Depending on how solid it is and the drive train I would decide if I keep this or my current Monaco and sell the other. Spanks where are you located, I may need a roof soon and rear glass?
That is absolutely insane. Maybe the craziest Blumo pic ever. I always thought the pic of the Blumo being lifted into the Blues Bar in Chicago was crazy, in a good Blues way crazy ...
But that light standard, that's just crazy. Was it a hurricane that brought it down?
I'm not sure what took the light pole down on the car but these pics came from the GM of the Myrtle Beach HOB. The ad was written by someone he referred to as "she" so I have to assume "she" just used file photos and maybe never has even seen the car, or paid much or any attention to it if she did. He told me honestly on the phone that the rear window and windshield were broken and that the roof was probably not repairable. He also said that they're selling it because it's too expensive to fix. On another note the car was from Massachusetts and driven to South Carolina in 2004 so not that long ago (mileage wise, not years) it was reliable enough to do that trip so that's a plus, and they had plates on it so they must have used it somewhat recently. Anyone know what engine this has? I'd assume most of you if you ever saw this car would check the VIN. One thing I noticed in the first group of pics in this thread is that the right front upper door panel is a '74-'75 Police panel, so I'd assume they all are.

The GM of the HOB just emailed me. So I'm not being greedy is anyone on here interested in this car? If someone wants it to do it and keep it I'd rather it go to a someone who doesn't have a toy and can't afford one, this car is hurting but its cheap. I have too many toys (and no money), I'd love to save this car but I need to unload a couple not add to the collection. I was gung ho but reality is setting in, if no one answers on here soon I may just do it so it stays with a fan and either fix it and flip it or see how I make out selling a few other cars.
