Re: the abandoned Volvo 760 turbo wagon I posted about earlier: After I sent a registered letter to the owners offering to buy the car(which has been sitting unlocked in a motel parking lot for over a year) I got the card back in the mail indicating the letter was delivered to the intended recipient. They never made any attempt to contact me. I talked to one of the owners of the motel and he said he'd talked to the other two co -owners and they said they're not going to do anything about the car--i.e. apparently just let it sit there indefinitely (until it deteriorates beyond feasible repair). Pisses me off. Since it's on their property, I can't really mess with it, but obviously neither they nor the car's owner care about it. Still seems like I should be able to get it away from those dummies somehow--while it's still worth something.
