Nope but I have been looking for one of those barns. Well back about 30 years ago I did find a jeep in a barn on the side of the county road, the door was blown open or something. Anyways I stopped to looked and it was a old Willis jeep in there. I never saw one before, it had a 3 point and PTO on it. I was too stupid at the time to realize how rare it was or was going to be. I went back many years later and the barn was there, jeep gone.

My Dad bought a barn full of hay. As we were loading the hay we discovered an old car. It was a Whippet all there except radiator which would have to be custom made. To young to be interested. Went back several years later probable at lest twenty. No barn or Whippet

Just down the road there is a barn with a 50s Pontiac sedan in it. Barn is falling in, car is sunk to the ground. Probably scrap metal, I don't believe it's a desirable model.

I do love old cars, I think the radical designs of the 60s we're unmatched, a stark contrast to what cars have become. Same for boats and outboard motors too.

We have gradually gotten rid of our "barn cars." Now just gotta keep the door barred against any more sneaking in there...

If you can find one already built ,and resonable ...best go that route..you can sink a ton in a restoration...I'm slowly doing just that..if I hadn't bought this one as a kid,, I wouldn't touch it..

Thats for sure, I agree. I just like doing the build, it may take me awhile. I am currently building a 2000 Mustang Gt with 14' Coyote 5.0 with turbo hooked to a powerglide with a 4500 stall. I figure by the time I get it on the road, it will be a 2.5- to 3 year build. On paper it should be pushing 1200-1500hp to the ground, thats in theory.

Saw this one on craigslist, $5500 I think? I was tempted, would be a nice classic
