More Barn Finds

Over the past few years the term “Barn Finds” has grown to include just about anything that doesn’t have a current license plate on it! A true Barn Find from my perspective is that immaculate, unrestored classic car that has not seen daylight in the past 30 years. More Barn Finds today are found in pastures than in barns or even garages. Most are so far gone that restoration is not practical. They are good yard art and that is about all.

We have a page on this site dedicated to Barn Finds. This page does not follow my own definition of stored, immaculate original but does include mostly “pasture finds”.

When I was a kid, I loved to ride my bicycle down to the local junk yard and ask permission to just walk around and look at all the totaled out hulks sitting in their yard. My buddy and I would try to figure out what caused all the damage to some and question why others that looked like they should be able to drive away with some good tires were sitting there.

If you enjoy these kinds of cars and images take a look at our web page and some of the new additions we just added to it. I have include just a couple of examples here to give you a hint of what you will find.

This is a real 1969 Ford Talladega but was so far gone even I walked away from it.

About the Author: I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check our our www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com page) As long as it has four wheels on it I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife Katriana is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out with our miniature donkeys.
