As it turns out, that couldn’t be…
I’m experiencing a very odd mix of confusion and desire, a welcome change from my normal state of confusion and incontinence, but still not ideal. It’s because of this astounding 1974 Super Beetle that’s going up for auction. That’s not the amazing part: the amazing part is that it has only 56 miles on the clock. I…
The time has come. It has now been exactly one year since taking on the task of driving my 1963 Mercury Comet barn find car every single day. You can read the article which details my first few months of owning her right here but I’ll give you the basic rundown if you don’t feel like jumping into that one.
Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe BMW is claimed to have been found… you guessed it, in a barn. It's dusty but not rusty, and you'll have to decide if awakening it from its long slumber requires a barn-burner price.

The reason why this barn-find Jaaaag E-Type made three times its pre-sale estimate is that it's a 1961 "Flat Floor", one of the last unrestored examples.
Barn find is the phrase typically applied to vehicles that show up - Marty McFly-like -years past their prime and apparently in tip top shape. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe middle child Datsun is just such a find - albeit from a garage and not a barn - but will its price prove something that'll keep ‘em down on…
Whether you're an early Corvette fanatic or just someone who stares at the average closed garage and wonders if it is hiding an automotive treasure it's hard not to get excited about the pictures of this recently unearthed 1961 'Vette.
Stories of ultra-rare muscle cars sitting in barns are truly the car person's equivalent of "the fish that got away". A few years, a hazy memory or just a desire for a good story have all too often put a Hemi under the hood of a dusty small block Barracuda or turned an average rot box Camaro into a ZL1.
Although we think discovering any old rusty vehicle that has spent several decades idle is a lucky score, tracking down a Pre-A Porsche 356 Cabriolet goes a bit beyond the "average barn find".
It's original, it's rusty, and to us this barn find 1947 Chevrolet Suburban is undeniably cool. After a few decades spent in a Virginia barn this weathered example of the original SUV has been unearthed and is currently for sale on Ebay.
Aston Martin made so few of the outrageously styled Lagonda sedans it's hard to believe there still some unaccounted for. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Series II is claimed to have been found hiding in, of all places, a barn, but does that make its price farm fresh?
Most Formula One cars end up on display or in the private collections of the über wealthy. A car like the McLaren MP4/6 Ayrton Senna drove to the F1 World Championship in 1991 should be in a museum. That's why I thought it was so strange when I thought we found it collecting dust in the space above the…
In a couple of weeks, this rare 1966 Shelby GT350 will cross an auction block after spending 26 years ensconsed by junk in a shed behind a Kansas apartment complex. Here's how the state of Texas liberated it.

What do you call a collection of rusty Singers, Hillmans, Simcas, and Sunbeams, assembled as part of an "outdoor museum" in Waukesha, and all for sale cheap? Wisconsin Death Trip?
I'm not really a motorcycle freak, but like all right-thinking Americans I'm bummed that custom bikes have followed rods over the precipice into the Overwrought Rococo Era. That makes this 1970 time capsule especially refreshing.
Village mechanic Jimmy Blanche collected antique cars for decades on his land. The decaying but complete and restorable Daimlers, Singers and Austins will be auctioned off in April.
Hiding in a partially collapsed lean-to in Mississippi, this vintage Porsche 356 racer tells no secrets besides what its roll cage evidently gives away.
