Ultimate Barn Finds free pdf BARN FIND...there is no more exciting phrase to a car collector. All over the world, there is a furious competition among car collectors to make that ultimate barn find--to find that car in a barn covered with dirt and boxes and pull it out into the sunlight and verify their hope that it is indeed a rare, rare model that, hopefully, they can buy for a song. One car can make you rich--if it's the right car. This book is about many of those barn finds--the $2 million Corvette prototype just given away to the first person that asked- the mysterious Oldsmobile "dream car" from the Fifties that was found apart in boxes- the one-off mid-engined Cobra, and on and on. The most prized, of course, are those documented concept cars (once called "dream cars" in the '50s, for good reason) that once graced the revolving platform of the world's auto shows. But wait--haven't all these cars been found? Is this a case of the treasure being gone? No--in the final chapters, there's cars that are still out there, unaccounted for, that, if found, represent possible future Pebble Beach candidates on their history alone. As well as 50 nominations of cars that will be barn finds if ever the automakers that built them let them loose.
