I can no longer say that I've never seen another Compact. On our trip from Ft. Worth to San Antonio we were rolling along southbound on US 67 about 8 miles south of Glen Rose when my wife said "there's a Compact". To which I replied, "where ?" "Under the tree back there". Pulled over and made a u-turn with a little disbelief in mind. She was right! There ,about 50 feet off the road, under a post oak, was a complete Compact Jr. We parked a took some pictures. Nobody was home to ask about it. The inside was gutted with all the applicances laying around the floor. It looked as if it's not moved for a very long time. I plan a trip back to get more information. Below is a link to some photos. Tom Trostel

Thumbs up

What is it about Compact Juniors that provoke people to [b]gut them?
