About Jamie Palmer

I've been a car nut ever since I can remember, loving all cars but having a special affinity for eclectic British ones, starting with an Austin-Healey Sprite when I was 12. I've been lucky enough to collect some and drive the heck out of them, including autocrossing and racing them. There's nothing more fun than poking around an old car that hasn't been disturbed in years and getting it to run and drive again!

1975 AMC Pacer: 39K Miles But Rust!

Honest Pickup! 1971 International 1110 4X4

I used to regularly write posts on “honest trucks” for Barn Finds but those have been hard to come by recently. Thankfully the trend has been reversed with this 1971 International Harvester “step side” truck that has been listed for… more»

16,214 Miles! 1966 Jeep Wagoneer Survivor

Jeeps like these were a fixture at many ranches and farms from the 1960s through the 1990s. Jeep obliged by hardly changing the basic vehicle structure throughout its entire run (1962-1991). This survivor wearing its original paint is said… more»

Wooden Cage? 1947 Citroen U23 Truck

I’m not sure what this 1947 (it says both 46 and 47 in the ad) Citroen AX wood-bodied truck was originally designed to carry, but I do know it was carried from France to Canada at some point and is… more»

Beautiful Project: 1967 Jaguar E-Type

Ah, the E-Type Jaguar. Without a doubt, the original E-Type was one of the most beautiful automotive shapes ever. Most folks feel that it got compromised as time went on — this 1967 2+2 version illustrates some of that… more»

Hangar Find? The Plane Car!

I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when the conversation that resulted in this hybrid airplane-truck was occurring! Or perhaps the bartender — it might have come after a rather large tab! The PlaneCar… more»

No Reserve: 1989 Jaguar XJS Convertible

As most of you know, I’m a Jaguar XJS fan. However, after previously resurrecting one from the dead (don’t buy one that’s been sitting in a forest for 15 years) I’ve decided I have better things to do with… more»

Cattle Ranch Find: 1964 Land Rover Series IIA

While this 1964 Land Rover Series IIA has the look of a survivor, it’s actually been mechanically refurbished after being found on a Nevada cattle ranch some time ago. Thankfully for the patina lovers out there, it hasn’t been… more»

One Of A Kind! 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass

Faded Glory: 1974 Chevrolet Corvette

Sitting next to another “Vette” in storage, this 1974 Chevrolet Corvette seems to just need a good clean and some touch up paint to try to rekindle some of its 70s & 80s glory (check out that rear spoiler!)… more»

Outside The Barn Find: 1964 Nova Wagon

UPDATE – This one sold for $6k back in June and made its way from Texas to New York. The new owner went through the fuel system and the V6 started up. They also went through the brakes so… more»

Former Street Freak: 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu

The seller describes this plain, original (that’s the original paint in between the surface rust patches) Chevelle as a blank canvas despite being largely untouched. Unfortunately, I wish there had been a little more touching in the way of… more»
