We love to see our reader’s finds, as it gives all of us a chance to see what everyone is currently interested in and it even gives us a glimpse of possible trends. We have noticed an increased interest in old trucks and oddball cars. Just take a look at the GMC K-10 and the Diamond T. We aren’t sure if you would classify some of the more obscure American cars, such as the Plymouth Valiant, Belvedere, and Ford Fairlane, as oddballs but we have seen a definite rise in interest in them… There might have been a lot of these cars built, but in the collector world, they are typically overlooked. Perhaps it’s that the Barn Finds crowd is more diversified in its tastes, but we think all car enthusiasts are starting to see the value in some of these great cars. Both Rovers that were submitted are often overlooked as well, but are worth a look, especially the V8 powered 3500 SD1. Being overlooked isn’t always a bad thing though, as it keeps some of these cars attainable to most of us regular car guys. Be sure to check out all the other great finds your fellow readers shared with us over the weekend and also have a look at our new layout for Reader Find Recaps after the break, hopefully it is easier to navigate and locate the links to the seller’s listings!
