    Don't know if we already have one, I searched but could not find one. So here is a start.

    I was visiting a friend checking on his progress of a 32 Ford 5-W build. When he takes me into another side garage , he had just picked this up locally through information from a friend of a friend. The car was in an old garage for over 45 years. He does not know what he will do with it but just had to have it.

    1932 Ford 5-W Coupe,

    Great find! We should first define "Barn Find". It's been overused as much as "Breaking News" has by the news stations. Photos of the car, as found are a huge plus.

    I've found a number of barns in my day but they're all full of rodents and horse puckys. Never quite caught on to this barn find craze.

    I bought a 48 Plymouth business coupe from the HAMB classifieds, it might have been in a barn at one time.

    It iwas a model and not R/C. I did not ask for it, as the Buick takes all of the extra room in the garage.

    Found this in a shed. Guy at work told me he knew where there was an old Model A buried in a shed. Almost didn't go look at it as I wasn't in the market for a Model A. Best buy I ever made.

    IMG_0828.JPG IMG_0877.JPG This one was supposedly parked in 1974. I like the old chrome steel wheels and the pinner whites.

  28. HA! This one has a cut down 1931 Dodge Brothers radiator and shell. Hardly ever see those on a hotrod.
