That goddamn 78 Eldo in the background of this picture is still in my dad's barn. Still in the same condition too.

My 15 year old just came home from a week there, and says the Cad is BadAss.

I don't know what to think about that.

Tell him he can have it if he can push it out to the road.

That's it! I'll lease it out to the local high school as a blocking sled.

Some "Barn Find" rules:

Talking to people is the only way these cars get rescued.

If you're hearing about a "barn find" second-hand, it's already too late.

A disassembled 1963 Falcon left to rot under a decrepit pole barn with a dirt floor is not a "barn find." It's a "shitbox."

9 times out of 10, the "barn find" photos you see on the internet are bullshit.

"Barn find" usually doesn't mean you're going to steal it for $100. People are old. They're not stupid.

Every town has some toothless, crazy 82-year-old woodchuck with a thousand vintage cars/motorcycles/tractors/airplanes/one-lunger engines parked all over his property that aren't for sale because "I'm going to restore them someday." These aren't "barn finds." They're "inventory for the estate sale."
