    Just Thought You Guys Would Like To See Some Pictures Of My New Barn Find Today In West Virginia. In A Small Town In The Hills Of West Virginia, We Spent Three Hours Digging Out This Coupe. It Was In A Barn That Had About 25 Other Cars, And It Was The Last One In The Back. We Actually Cut The Back Of The Barn Out To Get It Out. The Old Man Bought This Car In 1936 And Its Been In Storage Since The Barn Was Built Probably In The Late 50's. Even Though The Floors Are Rusted Out (dirt Floors) And The Grill And Some Of The Pieces Are Missing, It Was Still A Good Find For The Money. Hope You Enjoy.

    Let me be the first to say, "I hate you." :p;):D

    J/K of course, great score and yes, I'm a little jealous but even more stoked that someone got another great rod in the making. Congrats.

    Great find. Congratulations.

    Don't you just know that some local rodder is going to be pissed when he hears that some guy from Ohio slipped in & bought that car.

    I Heard About The Cars From An Old Lady In Church Last Sunday, She Said Her Friend Had Some Cars She Wanted To Sell, So A Couple Of Phone Calls Later, I Got To See The Cars. Some Of The Other Cars Are Brass T's, 1939 Chevy 4 Door, 1965 Rambler Marlins, 1956 Crown Vic, Barracuda, Bathtub Nash, 1951 Victoria , Ect. And An Attic Full Of Parts. Hopefully I Will Be Going Back Down Sometime When It Gets A Little Cooler. 95 Degrees And Bees Nests Are Not A Good Combination!

    Just To Prove I Didnt Steal The Car In The Middle Of The Night, A Picture Of The Owners Son Cutting The Back Of The Barn With A Chainsaw! Very Interesting Day! And Very Nice People To Deal With. Southern Hospitality I Guess!
