A Chevy Door?
by: Frank

Roger, your story is one that should make most of us laugh with interest. Of course, as you now know, we never know what we're going to find with our detectors, but a Chevy door? I mean it was exciting that Peter found the mason jars of coins, but a Chevy door? Is he looking for the rest of the car?

Thanks again,
