Saying So Long To Our Mustang

Mustang on the Trailer

This morning was filled with emotions as we said goodbye to our 1965 Mustang. If you have been following our progress on the Mustang, then you know that it recently sold to one of our readers. Lawrence P of San Francisco was the lucky winner of the auction and he wasted no time in transferring the funds and lining up a transporter. We are happy that it is going to him because he is very enthusiastic about the car and plans to continue right where we left off. He hasn’t owned a classic in a while either so it should provide a good opportunity to jump back in the saddle. His family is supportive of the idea and he lives in a good area to participate in the hobby so there is lots of hope for this old girl. Read more »

The Bus Trip Of A Lifetime

1954 SceniCruiser

Right before lunch today, I received a call from my good friend Sid. He excitedly shouted into the phone, “You had better get down here! You’re not going to believe what I just found! Bring your camera and hurry!” So, Josh and I jumped in the Miata and headed to the Lowes just down the street. We didn’t know what to expect, but as we pulled in, we were greeted by a very unlikely scene. It looked like someone was performing an engine swap on a 1954 Scenicruiser right there in the parking lot! Read more »

We all love to see before and after photos of project cars, so when Barn Finds reader Dan K sent in some shots of this¬† 1957 Morgan 4/4, I knew we had to share them. Here is what he had to say, This Morgan does not belong to me. It is a customers car. The Morgan was dug out of a storage building and the new owner sent the car in for a complete restoration. In the middle of the restoration the owner died and his wife hesitantly¬†decided to finish restoration. I don’t have any other information that I can share other than that. I just thought you might be willing to show it on your site. Read more »

Pantera Barn Finds Still Exist!

1 pantera the begining

From Dave C. - In May of 2014 I found a true barn find up in Northern New York. A guy had a stored 1973 Pantera sitting under an inch of dust for over 19 years. The car was beautiful so I purchased her and shipped her home 9 hours away. Barn finds do still happen and I can attest to that. Here is a picture of her found with the previous owner and now sitting in my driveway! Thank god for barn finds! Read more »

When we first received an email from David W a car parked in a barn, we thought it might be a recent discovery, but as we read his email we realized that this was parked in his own barn. Last summer he and his brother decided to pull it out from what he calls “The Old Shop”, an old cinder block building, and get it running again. He had this 1941 Chevrolet Convertible running and driving back in 2003, but when he had to go overseas for work it went into the Old Shop again. Read more »

Reader Find: Papa’s Ol’ Ghia

1974 Karminn Ghia

Some of the best finds really aren’t finds at all. They sometimes are cars that have been a part of our lives for as long as we can remember. They might be our first car or one that we grew up going on family vacations in. And whether they are rare or run of the mill family haulers, they hold a special place in our hearts because of the roll they played in our lives. Well Brian C’s recent find has been a part of the family for nearly 40 years and holds a special place for him. To really do this story justice, I will let Brian tell you it in his own words.
