Jaguar E-Type barn find hidden since the 1980s heading to auction

AN early 1960s model Jaguar E-Type left hidden in a barn for 30 years is to go up for auction – and experts predict it will sale for a hefty sum. The 1962 model 3.8L coupe has been sheltered in a North Devon barn since the mid Eighties, and hasn’t been started up in more than 15 years. However despite extensive rust damage and its desperate need of a complete restoration, H&H Auctioneers have given it an estimated value between £50,000 ($65,000) and £60,000 ($77,000). One of just 1,799 models built in…

This Barn Find Lamborghini Miura Is Back on the Road After Sitting for 25 Years

A Lamborghini Miura isn’t exactly a common barn find. After all, if you own a Miura, you tend to remember having it. But the rarity of that situation (combined with the rarity of the car itself) is part of what makes this particular Miura so special. In an interview with Petrolicious, the current owner says his 1967 Lamborghini Miura P400 originally belonged to one of his grandmother’s cousins. He worked on it himself, drove it regularly, and even commuted in it. But unfortunately, a brake and clutch repair in the…

$700 Craigslist car find worth millions

Have you ever looked at a Craigslist car ad and thought, “I wonder if I should take a chance?” Here’s one that was posted on Craigslist in the Tampa Bay area of Florida about five years ago: ”SERIAL # X53L on documented 1953 pre-production Corvette Frame.

Abandoned Lada Dealership Found In France

BY: ANTHONY KARR This is one of our favorite kinds of stories – some old vehicles found abandoned at a parking lot or a dealership for a long time. But this time it’s even more special, as this French showroom was selling Ladas in the 1990s and, according to some reports, is still operational today, probably as a service center. Let’s be honest – our first impression was that this dealership was not working for the last 10 or 15 years, judging by the poor condition of most of the…

EPIC MUSCLE CAR BARN FIND! SUPERBIRD, TALLADEGA, SPOILER UPDATE!

It seems likely the most valuable barn find ever in the history of the automobile, just based on the number of cars and their rarity. Finding this many rare cars in one place is not likely to ever happen again! The crown jewel of the find is obviously the Plymouth Superbird, a car designed and built by Plymouth to lure Richard Petty back to the manufacturer during his NASCAR heyday. The car was built in extremely limited numbers just for stock car racing, and featured a 426 CID Hemi with dual four-barrel…

According to a post from Facebook user William Avila, he and his friend Shawn Matthews found these two cars in a small Oklahoma town, where they were listed for sale as a pair for $200,000. Avila knew he wouldn’t pay that much for a Grand National,…

What do you think of this? This is an Abandoned Mopar Dealership.

Somewhere in Ohio sits an abandoned Chrysler dealership with old cars parked on the showroom floor, like a prop leftover from a nuclear bomb test. The only evidence of its existence were a set of eerie Flickr photos. Until now. The first photo of this abandoned dealership actually hit the Flickr photo sharing site in 2004. There’s no name on the building or doors, just “Chrysler Plymouth Dodge Jeep” in a font that went out of style around the time Ronald Reagan became president. But the reason this dealership even…
