February 20, 2007: Opening old farmhouse reveals 180 antique cars
And inside are over 180 antique vehicles. Some as old as the 20s. Covered with a severe layer of dust, and in various states of repair.
This Porsche 356 is considered by speculating web surfers to be the most expensive find in the lot.
This American car from the 20s should fetch a decent price too.
A few of the cars are more recent, 70s vintage... apparently the battery is still good on that Alfa, with its brake light on.
Complete slideshow here.

Ha, I was just going to send you this item. You found a better source though, where I found it they said the "barn" was supposedly hidden in the woods and only inside pictures.

Ah yes, so it is...

Yeah, I wondered if they were hot. That would be a story if some guy had been stealing and stashing cars for 50 years.

See what happens when you forget where you parked?

Doesn't look to me like anyone has been in there in 30 years or more. Even in pieces, those babies are going to bring someone a frigging *fortune*.

Cloud Tuesday Feb 20 07:03 PM
any dead bodies in those cars?
Undertoad Tuesday Feb 20 07:27 PM
You know what, I'll take the old Mercedes in the last pic up there. Not only will it be a total tank, it'll probably start and drive right off without even having to be dusted.

I can't decide between the Mg Magnette, the Nash, or the yellow Lotus

I dunno, they look old and dusty...and I'll bet there's not a cupholder in the bunch.

What, no pink cars in the entire lot? Where were the Mary Kay ladies?

I would pick about five to restore and sell the rest. They all appear restoreable but I bet it'll be tough to find parts for many of those lesser known makes.
