    I friend of mine recently purchased some property and on this property was a barn. The owner of the property had not been in the barn for close to 30 years and had let everything inside of it just 'rot'.

    Here is a pic of the barn

    Here is what is outside the barn.....

    That is 5 Mustangs and 1 Country Squire. A couple of those cars were driven here on their own people (30 + years ago).


    Now.. I went inside.. :wtc: :wtc: :wtc:

    Punk kids had broken into the place over the years and stolen various things and just vandalized stuff.

    In total there are..

    • 2 Mercury Cougars
    • 1 Alfa Romeo
    • 1 Country Squire
    • 12 1965 - 1966 Mustang (2 verts)
    • 1930s something Lincoln

    It appears the guy who owned the place purchase the cars and put them into 'storage' with plans to restore them one day. Bad thing is... this property is about 4 blocks from the Gulf of Mexico and the salt in the air from the bay just killed these cars.

    The two verts are spoken for already. Some of the cars have the original drivetrain still others do not. The 2 Cougars are missing drivetrains.

    I was thinking the same thing. Good thing tho.... guy who purchased the property is a Ford mechanic and knows the value of the cars, what to do with them and if they are worth fixing. :bigok:

    But yeah.. the original owner of the property :madfawk: Look at the first photo, you can see trees the grew up over the front door (we trimmed them)!! Gives you sort of an idea how long it was shut in.
