I recently stumbled across this neat old barn find located about 3 miles away from my home. I have lived in this town my whole life and had no idea that this barn even existed. A few weeks ago as I was looking through some local classified ads I saw a listing for an old gas pump. Included in the listing was a picture of the old gas pump. As I looked at the picture, I noticed some old model A front axles sitting next to it. I picked up the phone and made a quick call to the individual trying to sell the pump. I told him that I was admiring his old gas pump and noticed that there were a few old car parts sitting next to it. I then asked if he had any other old car parts. To my surprise the voice over the phone said..."Do I have old car parts....lets see...I have a few model T's and 3 or 4 Model A's"...My heart started racing as I asked if they might be for sale. A quick response rang through the phone..."it is all for sale". I asked for his address, ran out to my car and headed straight there. The five minute drive seemed excruciatingly long despite the fact that I was literally flying to get there. I arrived to a little old home that was overgrown by the trees and landscaping. I met a gentlemen at the front gate leading to the backyard. As I walked in, I felt as if I had just walked through the pearly white gates of heaven. I was amazed. There was treasures scattered everywhere. I couldn't believe my eyes. I quickly scanned the entire yard but could not see any of the cars that we had spoke about over the phone. After a few minutes of ogling, I couldn't take it any longer. I asked..."Sir, you mentioned over the phone that you had some sold model A's & T's. could we take a look at them? He then led me down this pathway to the old barn. As we pried open the old sagging wood door, light slowly crept into the old building. Wow! The old owner of this building had mastered the art of hoarding. Buried in this building were the 3 model a's that we had spoke about earlier. Now my heart was really racing. I couldn't dig in fast enough. I felt like Mike Wolf from the TV show American Pickers. I was digging through stuff that I'm sure hadn't seen daylight in 40 years. Treasures were everywhere. All I could think about was....."Buy it all". After the sensory overload that I was experiencing, I asked about the model T's. He then lead me to a smaller garage. As we walked in I recognized the old gas pump that was originally in the ad. Tucked back in the corner of this garage were the model T's. After looking at the T's I decided it was time to try and cut a deal. I pulled a wad of cash out of my pocket and started to negotiate ...I wanted to show this guy that I was serious and not just blowing smoke. As we were talking his phone started to ring...and he started to give people the same response that he had given to me over the phone earlier...."Yes, I have a ton of old car parts, model T's & A's". That excitement that I had earlier had was quickly changing to nervousness now. Before I knew it other people were starting to show up to the property. I started to get that sick to your stomach feeling you get when you feel you just missed out on the find of lifetime. Our conversation abruptly came to a close when other people started to show up. The gentlemen acted surprised to see others reactions as they saw all of the cars. He then chose to do nothing with the cars at the moment. He wanted to see if he would generate more interest to drive the purchase price up. For the next ensuing 3 weeks I continued to call him daily to see if he had made his mind up. He would only tell me that he had multiple parties interested and that I should make him an offer that he couldn't refuse. I told him that I would stick to my original offer and that that was my highest and best. This story actually has a good ending!! After 3 torturous weeks, he finally gave me a call this past Sunday and agreed to make a deal on the Model A's. As soon as I hung up the phone, I drove to his home to put cash in his and hand. I am in the process of loading up the cars and parts now. I will continue to post further pictures as I make progress. I hope you enjoy barn find posts as much as I do. Enjoy the pictures.
