Where Do These People on eBay Find Such Amazing Cars?

Every so often, I type “Barn find” into eBay Motors just to see what kind of coolness pops up.  The search always yields hundreds of cars, trucks, and motorcycles that I dream of owning.  I want to be the guy that finds these things.  If there is some kind of Indiana Jones sort-of adventure involved that is even better.  I will run from crazy underground traps, and solve ancient riddles if it gets me a sweet old car. Heck, I may even do it for a couple of seized engines.  It’s every gearhead’s dream.

On eBay there are guys that pull ’60′s Vette’s, Yenko’s, Packards, and everything in between out of fields and barns.  How they find this stuff? I have no clue!  One of my favorite eBay finds recently was a 1933 Pierce Arrow.  It was apparently sitting under a tree in California for the last 50 years.  Luckily for car enthusiasts, cars don’t rust into the earth so fast in California, so this is an easy save for any restorer.  Check the pictures out and tell me how mad you are that you didn’t find it first!

Got a barn “find” story with pictures? Tell me your story.  I absolutely love reading about this kind of stuff.   If your story is good I’ll post it up here!

    I’ve found ‘em too, but the story from the 70yr old, broke guy often goes…’I plan on restoring that someday’ or ‘I’m saving it for the grandson’…so they sit and rot.
