Default Crazy Barn Finds

Anyone ever personally come across a crazy barn find?

My buddy does A/C work and was replacing an AC on someones house and the dude had twelve 68-69 Camaro's just parked in this building in the back. He ended up snagging a clean 68 off of him after prying for weeks.

My Uncles 64 Impala. I first found out about it when I was 15 or 16. I wanted to buy it from him, but he didn't want to sell it. Finally after 30 years he moved it out of the horse barn and into his shop. He said he is going to start working on it.

When it was in the horse barn

I don't know if it counts since newer but I bought a 1999 Miata 10th anniversary edition last year with 17,000 miles for $4,000. Just needed a detail, tune up, new tires and fluids and sold it for $9,500. Pretty low miles on a special model.

Also had to fix the headlight harness and clean the hell out of it because this lady left it out in a field and mice turned it into their play place/ hotel.

cleaned up nice though

I felt pretty bad, I got 99% of the stuff out and bought a $30 vacuum so I could just throw it away after. Took it in for the detail and there was gross stains everywhere and some poop left it hard to get spots. Tipped him $50 up front and just ran lol. Worth it though

Old lady or gay dude you mean?

guy who who showed up to get it had a sunburst yellow NA with like 11,000 on it. He listed it on BaT not long ago. Was kind of a douche and talked me down from 12,000 so I don't feel bad he's driving that hauntavirus trap.

I was sad sad to see it go it was amazing all cleaned up

Cleaned the tank, changed fluids, and got it running. We couldn't believe it when the air suspension came to life.

I'm still pissed we couldn't get the Cosworth from the same junkyard

My uncle has a 65 L78 corvette that's been parked in my grandmother's garage for the last 30 years... His children won't work on it and refuse to sell it to me...

That 190E is awesome. I've always loved that car and would be happy to own one. It's always a shame when a car like that has to live such a tough life.

Future barn find right here. I've had this car stored inside since 2013. It's a 6 speed with really low mileage. I pulled it out back in March to wash it and run it til the gas tank went dry, then it went back inside.
