About Jesse Mortensen

Hunting for unique cars is a thrill for me! It's part of what made me passionate about starting this blog Barn Finds!

Growing up, combing the local classifieds looking for old cars, was one of my favorite things to do! Unique cars interested me and I'd dream of buying them and fixing them up. My Dad and brother shared this same excitement of driving around the back streets of our little Wyoming town in search of BARN FINDS!
While we never found any Bugatti's stashed away, it was always a thrill to go look. When we'd catch glimpses of muscle cars or some other classic it never got old.
