One constant among car enthusiasts all over the world is the barn find dream.
This fantasy includes discovering a classic car wasting away in a barn or garage, the owner saying “I have no idea what it’s worth,” followed by the realization that once home and cleaned up, your classic car is Pebble Beach Concours Preservation Class ready.

Barn finds do exist, however, as documented in Tom Cotter’s great Cobra in the Barn and Hemi in the Barn books.
Below are some barn find pictures forwarded to SCD. Click here for the entire posting, which includes several other finds.
