    I got sent an email a while ago about a couple from America who retired to Portugal and bought an old farm. the owner had died some years before. It had a massive barn with huge metal doors that were heavily padlocked shut. They hired a generator and a stihl saw and cut the locks off and inside were vintage cars parked bumper to bumper. All sorts, Jenson Interceptors, Bugattis, Jaguars. An impressive list of desirable cars from yesteryear. They sold the lot for.......................










































    $34,000,000 :ohmy:.

    I'll have to see if I still have it when I get home and post the pics.

    Really? The pictures were very real though. They can't have been faked.

    Here it is;

    Barnfinds Portugal

    It appears that the 'American man' story is a myth, but the 'find' certainly isn't. Don't ya just wish.........
