(Photos by Bob Chiluk) – We don’t think that we’re saying anything out of school when we call the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals the greatest muscle car-centric car show in the world, right? This thing has become the gold standard place to see and be seen with rare, cool, restored, or freshly found muscle. Classic race cars are there, insanely low production muscle cars are weirdly there in volumes, and there’s a barn find section that makes everyone buzz each year.
The whole “barn find” thing has exploded over the years and amazingly people keep turning up new discoveries on the weekly it seems. Whether they be actually rare cars or perhaps just something cool that was tucked away and never saw the light of day for decades, there’s a mystique and a fun story behind all of them. The cars in the Bob Chiluk photos below show a great cross-section of the stuff collected for this part of the show. We’re guessing some of them will be sold as they are, some of them will be restored, and some of them will be left as time capsules, displaying their tattered and worn appearances like badges of honor. No matter how they remain or change, we’re just glad that someone found ’em.
