  • Cars in Barn INSANITY ..... Huge Find!

    Well with my weekend in Vermont, I had some free time after my interview on Saturday. I had heard from Art about a guy that had a bunch of Mopars. I was EXTREMELY surprised by what he had. It was far beyond anything I had imagined.

    DO NOT TELL WHERE AND WHO THIS GUY IS. HE DOES NOT WANT TO HAVE HIS LOCATION PUBLISHED. JUST THE PICTURES TO SHOW WHAT HE HAS. IF YOU KNOW, DON'T SAY.

    The story will be posted over 3 days at the link below, but here are a few pictures. I took over 500 pictures, they are all also below.

      I have to say as a Ford Guy I wish I could have stack cars like that.
      On the other hand how many of the ones sitting outside will just turn to dirt,unused because "I'll restore it one day".

      Sometimes I wish these guys would just pass them along.

        The cars outside are a sorry sight...As a Mopar guy Id be super frustrated by all the work and cash that needs to be spent to start driving the lot. As a hoarder, Id be in hog heaven. Too bad the stuffs not in the high desert of CA instead of VT...

            My thoughts exactly.
            There's always something new to learn.

              silliness.

              I am curious to mopars.. my dad had some odd ones. In a scenario where crushed would not have been an option.

              I ponder one of these places just simply having one of them sitting there.

              he got one for free once, low miles, factory a/c emerald green (his description). He had to take the plastic off the seats. Blew a transmission.. gave it away, like it was given to him. No way that is in a junk pile. It had six years from new, noone driving it. I bet it is straight as an arrow someplace.. in oh no.. new england.

                Ryan, great stuff!

                I'm guessing you interviewed at Hemmings. If so, I hope you get the job!

                  I'll give the Gentleman credit for one thing, he's doing an excellent job of letting them rust away, the outside cars were probably worth something at one time.

                      Kind of what I was thinking...

                      disappointing waste if you ask me...

                        I doubt people park a car that runs well or is good shape. Most end up with one guy because nobody wants them.

                          Yeah, he collected them. He was a car salesman and kept as many Mopars as he could.

                          And I did have an interview at Hemmings. I'll hear from them in a few weeks on what they decide. I think the interview went well though.

                            Amazing, great pics, but what a waste! Hoarders are strange people.

                              Very true. People hoard things because they love them, but they end up hoarding them to death.
