1st of Only 43 Made: 1960 Henney Kilowatt

The 20th Century was littered with so many unusual and interesting vehicle companies that I wonder if anyone has ever come up with a comprehensive list of every different car company? Probably not, but now I have something to… more»

1987 Dodge Charger with 360ci V8 Swap and RWD Conversion

In the 1980s, Chrysler used a familiar namesake for its fuel-sipping, front-wheel drive L platform – the Dodge Charger. Surely, the thought of a FWD economy car sharing the name of a prolific muscle car caused unhappiness among Mopar… more»

Small Block Swap: 1972 Chevrolet Vega Wagon

Chevrolet’s Vega is an unassuming car in stock form, and it’s also one that caused the company lots of grief in its original iteration. Luckily, this 1972 Vega Wagon that’s here on eBay has a V8 swap and plenty… more»

Big Surprise! 1949 Ford F-1 Ice Cream Truck

I absolutely love Craigslist because it offers infinite surprises with every click of the mouse. Finding an ad on CL like this beautifully restored Good Humor ice cream truck happens every so often and when it does, it sets… more»

Chop Top Wagon: 1979 AMC Pacer

If you’ve seen one 1979 AMC Pacer wagon convertible you’ve seen them all. No, really, are there any others? This chop-top music video car can be found here on eBay in Peroria, Arizona with an unmet opening bid price… more»

The Best Worst Car Ever Revisited: 1986 Yugo GV

After almost five years this Yugo has resurfaced. Since we last featured it, the car has made its way to Spokane, Washington and found a very loving caretaker. The new owner put about 6k miles on it, but they… more»

Shriners’ Sports Car: 1960 Austin-Healey Sprite

While the Shriners are most well known for piloting small go-carts at parades and other gatherings, there’s also a fair amount of evidence supporting the belief that they can have fun with full-size cars, too. Take this 1960 Austin-Healey… more»

Silver Bullet: 1984 Pontiac Fiero EV

Here’s another in the Scotty G Oddball EV series of semi-normal cars that have been converted to battery power: we bring you this 1984 Pontiac Fiero EV – also known as Silver Bullet. This good looking silent ride can… more»

Jeff’s New Project: Mini-Cars Go Kart!

Every now and again, I justify a small purchase – mostly in the form of die-cast models – by saying my toddler daughter would enjoy it. I can’t help the fact that she’s already shown an interest in automobiles,… more»

Bargain Ghostbuster Project? 1959 Cadillac Ambulance

It is sometimes funny how life imitates art. In the 1984 blockbuster film Ghostbusters, Dan Aykroyd buys a 1959 Cadillac ambulance for the title characters to drive. He states the car needs a bunch of work, but he paid… more»

Sport Model! 1988 Yugo GVX

Call me crazy, but I want this Yugo! Being a GVX means that it’s as tricked out as a Yugo can be. And while many of the changes are cosmetic, like the sweet sport seats and body kit, this… more»

$8,888.88! Restored 1988 Yugo GV

I’m probably one of the few fully functioning adults here who would publicly admit that they like Yugos. Have I ever owned one? No, maybe that’s why I like them as much as I do. This may be the… more»

Ghost Tour Limo: 1974 Cadillac Hearse

When I look at the variety of different cars that find their way across the desks here at Barn Finds, I think that the best word that I could use to describe them would be eclectic. Nowhere is this… more»

Black Plate Bonneville Stretch Sighting!

From Bluebird – I really enjoy the sightings posts and thought I’d send mine in. I pass this car often and thought that maybe my fellow Barn Finders would like to see pictures of a long car that probably… more»

1975 AMC Pacer: 39K Miles But Rust!

Thanks to the poor quality of these pictures, this 1975 AMC Pacer actually looks better than it might be — but with only 39,000 miles showing is it worth a look anyway? It’s for sale here on eBay and is… more»

Army Green: 1974 VW Thing

When it comes to Volkswagen’s Thing, I really prefer that it look somewhat weather-beaten and tired on the outside. A restored Thing just misses the point, in my opinion, as these vehicles were designed to be left outside and… more»
