 Product Description

By: Tom Cotter .

The car in the barn is the Holy Grail of the automotive world. The quest revolves around finding a dust-covered beauty—a long- forgotten Grand Sport Corvette, Jaguar E-Type, or Mustang Boss 302—owned by a little old lady who, when you ask if the car is perhaps for sale, responds, "Would fifty dollars be too much to ask?"

As author Tom Cotter found out, the car in the barn myth comes true on a surprisingly regular basis. Cars are found by good Samaritans fixing neighbor's faucets, propane gas delivery men, and private detectives hired for the job. Often these cars are amazing examples, including a Vanderbilt-owned town car found in a barn in Long Island, a 1954 Corvette with 1,368 original miles, and a 1963 Shelby Cobra guarded by a manic raccoon in a barn near Indianapolis, Indiana.

This collection of stories also includes Peter Egan's memorable tale of one of his purchases, "Fetching the Lotus," and Ken Gross' story of the recovery of a famous Mercury custom, "Death Be Not Proud."
