Well guys, it’s that time again. It’s time to say goodbye to 2016 and welcome in a New Year. We have lots of great things planned for 2017, but we thought we needed to give 2016 a proper fairwell by taking a look back at all the great finds from the year. I’ve picked out a couple of my favorite stories and finds from the year, which you can find below, but I want to hear what some of your favorites have been!
Over the past decade or so, salvage and wrecking yards have been disappearing. This treasure trove of parts cars was recently liquidated and while the thought of so many classics being crushed is terribly depressing, we are glad that some of the parts could go towards saving other classics from the crusher!
Obviously you wouldn’t be able to stash 30k cars away in your home, but you definitely could fit that many model cars in it! And one man did just that. When he passed away he left his house and his collection to his church. It’s one incredible story and we are proud to say we managed to buy a couple of the cars from his collection and have them proudly displayed in our office right now!
It might not be for sale, but that doesn’t mean we can’t all dream of owning this amazing Corvette! It really is an incredible find and an amazing story that’s well worth reading!
There aren’t too many things more incredible that finding a Superbird or two in someone’s basement! That’s right, someone had the idea of stashing their two, yes two, Superbirds in their basement and that’s where they stayed for quite a few years. Both are out now and this one just recently sold for some serious money on eBay!
I think for us, this has to be one of the most exciting finds of 2016! It’s a real Shelby GT350 after all, oh and it was a Barn Finds Exclusive! We helped find a new home for it within 24 hours of featuring it. The new owner has asked us to keep their information private for the time being, but hopefully we can give you the full story on this amazing Mustang early in 2017!
Well guys, there were some absolutely amazing finds this past year. So many so that I don’t think we could fit them all in one post. I for one would love to hear what each of your favorite finds from 2016 were, so be sure to leave them below in the comments section. Special thanks to all of you for an incredible Barn Finds 2016!
