When I was 14, my cousin, a contractor, took a fox-bodied mustang as payment for his services. The car was a literally a trash heap....full of fast food wrappers and various ephemera. My cousin was just going to take it to the salvage yard, but knowing that I was almost old enough to drive, offered it to my dad. My cousin even offered a tow rope! I remember sitting in the driver seat reaching for the rally-style 5 speed:

But, my dad just laughed, and my cousin LITERALLY threw it away..... :(
