1946 FL Is A HELL’S ANGELS Incredible Barn Find!

There are many reasons not to wash a bike, but being a real barn find that has once belonged to the infamous Hell’s Angels Dave “The Hat” is surely amongst the top of them. The bike is a real classic, 1946 FL which has gone thru extensive modification by the original Hell’s Angels owner back in the day which had to stop riding it due to an injury he suffered, so not wanting to sell the bike, he still kept it and would just start it from time to time to hear…

Treasure Trove of 36 Classic Corvettes Discovered in a Garage After 25 Years

A rare collection of 36 classic Corvettes were discovered in an underground garage in New York City. The muscle cars were won in a contest organized by music channel VH1 and later sold to German graphic artist Peter Max who wanted to incorporate the Vettes in his vibrant pop art works. Clearly, Max never got around to it and the Vettes simply sat in the garage and collected dust for more than 25 years. The collection consists of every Corvette model released between 1953 and 1989. Max reportedly purchased the…

DODGE CHARGER 500 AND PLYMOUTH SUPERBIRD BARNFIND

Back in 1969, Dodge had an issue with its new-model Chargers in NASCAR. The big open grille in front and the recessed rear window gave the car all sorts of issues on the track. So Dodge used wind tunnel testing to smooth out those areas, and eventually developed the 1969 Charger 500, which used a 1968 Coronet front grille and a flush rear window. While those fixes were a step in the right direction, Dodge wanted to push the envelope further and developed the Charger Daytona, with its trademark pointed…

1970 CHEVELLE SS454 RESCUED FROM A COLLAPSED BARN IN RURAL OHIO

Most avid car enthusiasts have heard at least a few tall tales about a rare vintage car parked in a barn somewhere. Most of us usually dismiss it as just that—a tall tale. Rumors of a 1970 Chevelle SS454 sitting in a collapsed barn in Ohio have swirled for many years around the Chevelle enthusiast circles. Solid proof confirming this story had never been available until May 2017, when a short cell phone video of the car surfaced, along with a contact email address. An email was quickly sent to…

TWO BRAND NEW UNTOUCHED 1987 GRAND NATIONALS FOUND IN A GARAGE!

According to the story on the Barnfinds website, this pair of Buick Grand Nationals was purchased new in 1987 and almost immediately parked in the owners garage. After nearly 30 years, the eccentric owner decided it was time to sell the cars, so he posted them on Facebook for $200,000. While the price kept tire kickers at bay, the story itself drew the attention of Grand National fanatic William and his buddy Shawn, who actually had the cash to make the purchase. The owner required some ridiculous hoop-jumping for the…

Some Barns Hide Better Unused Cars than Others

Barn Find Hunter is Hagerty’s web series about Tom Cotter going across America, only to find cars ranging from total trash to rarities you wouldn’t believe. And I’m talking about more than a 1980 Eagle 4×4 Turbodiesel. In North Georgia, Cotter’s walk started with a Rambler Marlin, a rare fastback with a 292 V8, a four-speed, power brakes, and not much else. When was the last time you saw one of those? Probably never, because AMC only built them for two years, sort of as a halo car. The owner wants $3000…

Really. This 1965 Sting Ray coupe lived in a shed for 36 years

Tucked away in a farmer’s shed in on the Great Plains of America since 1981, the old coupe had a coat of dust thick enough to almost entirely obscure the original Marina Blue paint. There was no hurry to move the 1965 Corvette, “being as we’re right in the middle of harvest,” Travis Snyder said. “It’s a 1965 Sting Ray; a 327, 365-horse original motor; original transmission, a four-speed. It’s Marina Blue with a Marina Blue leather interior.” Snyder owns a body shop in Ness City, Kansas, where he likes…

Miss Belvedere: The World’s Most Disappointing Time Capsule?

BY LUKE BATHER,  mentalfloss The world loves the nostalgia of a good time capsule story, but things don’t always go according to plan. In the case of Tulsa, Oklahoma, one time capsule that was supposed to yield buried treasure turned out to be a disappointment 50 years in the making. The year was 1957, and the city of Tulsa was celebrating the state’s 50th anniversary with a competition. The prize was a brand-new Plymouth Belvedere with only four miles on the odometer. But like any big PR stunt, there was a catch:…

Urban Explorers Discover An Abandoned Warehouse Randomly Filled With Old Cars

Imagine coming across this large, abandoned building while out on a walk. It’s in the middle of the countryside and the doors are locked. Curious, you step up to the window to peek inside. It seems to be full of something, although it’s hard to see exactly what. A photographer stumbled across this building and felt exactly that. Luckily, he was able to peek inside and discover what was waiting for him. The storage barn (located somewhere in Portugal) is actually packed to the brim with old, classic cars. The pictures…
