my neighbors got this car......

need some ideas. in short my neighbor has this ea sitting in her back shed, shes about 60 and it doesnt seem anyone else lives with her so im assuming its her car. she already has a car she drives and this EA is just sitting there covered in dust and cobwebs all over it. i heard her try starting it the other day but it had a flat battery so i looked through a hole in the shed wall (which is also our fence) and seen this car sitting there.
now the problem is that its totally inclosed in the shed so really i shouldnt know that its there and i somehow need to spark up conversation about it as i want to buy it. 2nd problem is that ive never spoken to her and i never see her in the yard. i dont want to just knock and the door and be like " i was snooping through the hole in the shed and seen...." type of thing.
anyone got any ideas on how i can firstly talk to her and secondly bring up the car?

Just go over there telling her that you couldn't help over hearing her try to start the car and ask her if she would like some help to fix the car.

Does she do gardening in the front/back yard? You could just hang around your front/back yards and just talk to her. Later on you could tell her that your heard a car trying to start in her back shed.

just cut a new door way throu the fence from your side and drive it out .
she'll never notice it gone ,just wash it , it will be a diff colour then

Re: my neighbors got this car......

Hit a cricket ball into the back yard, convieniently near the shed. (maybe hide it so u have to go get it)
And bang. Your in :)

I had a simular problem bout a year back
I found this Original VH RT Charger. In MINT condition. All original, pait A1, interior awsome, 260 Hemi.
It only ever just sat there, walked past it on way to school for 4,5years. I wanted to ask to buy it, and when i got my lic, thought about it for about 18months. Till onday i walked past and it was gone :bw:
I think one of the guys doing roadworks saw it and made an offer.


so go for it, otherwise it may end up like that RT

I think the cricket ball thing will work. Unless shes a cold old biatch.

Re: my neighbors got this car......

Could the car belong to the last nice young man who entered your neighbours yard? Are there barrels or a smell of sulpher?

Re: my neighbors got this car......

tell her the truth!
nah that would be to easy, ok um when she goes out one day, pinch her mail, when she gets back take it over there and start talking, ask her if she has any work that she would like help with (cause your such a nice young boy) after helping her out (no not like that) maybe u will use tools from the shed? maybe you meantion you fix cars and stuff in your spare time? or maybe you fix hers up clean it and she might give it to you? awww the stuff disney movies are made of :)

Re: my neighbors got this car......

Go the, "i heard you trying to start your car" route. And do it sooner rather than later or she'll forget she was trying to start it..

Would it be wrong to tell her it's rooted and you'll kindly take it off her hands?
(just joking)
