barn finds

show the barn finds.

this was at work the other day. I didn't see it until he was pulling out.



Hudson. original and not on the road since 58' if you can see the tab. i didn't know they even tab'd em back then.

was damn near pristene. other than the surface patina..
some tires and a tune up and i bet it runs. even the interior (I hear from my boss) was like new just dusty. and it needs a new ragtop.

damn. how come I never find something like this.

I love barn finds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

maybe it's the kid in me hoping to find the minibike for $5 leaned against a tree somewhere, but I do love barn finds and other nifty discoveries.

I'm not a 'vette guy, but fuck, I could have some fun with a split that someone else already chopped up.

Yep. I'd hit the brakes so hard my eyeballs would bulge. I'd be turned around and figuring out a begathon strategy for the money. "Yes, we've got room for it."

I think that's part of the joy.

Just back from Prudhoe Bay, IMO it was really worth the trip, AK is a beautiful place & you need lots of time to take it all in. I'm looking forward to returning & exploring some places i didn't have time to ride.RIP Ron Melton
