  • If we build them, will they come?

    Barn find, of course, has become a catch all for seemingly lost vintage vehicles, right? wouldn't it be nice in an era of disappearing barns, if when someone built a new one, more barn finds "would come"?

    I always laugh when people smile or laugh about barn finds. There are NINE antiques in varying stages of repair and condition within 1/2 mile of my house and I am constantly surprised by friends or neighbors who have one in their garage or barn.

      Yes, i would expect to find them in your neck of the woods..."Life is old there, older than the trees, younger than the mountains, growing like a breeze"

        I have a triumph TR4 in my shop just now that was in a barn just down the street for many years. It is a real POS, that should go to the dump, but the owner bought it in 1967, and wants me to weld all new panels in the body. Barn fresh is not always a golden egg.

                One has to always remember that not everything, just because it's old, is worth saving. I love the expression I read somewhere.... I buy junk but sell antiques!
