It seems that everywhere you turn, on TV, at your library or favorite bookstore, Internet forums, and even social media, people are discovering and documenting the resurrection of old cars stored in barns, garages, and other forgotten resting places. The common term for all this automotive archaeology has become "barn finds" because many of these lost treasures are, literally, found in barns. And many of the finds have amazing stories.
In Exotic Barn Finds, veteran author and historian Matt Stone tells the story of more than 30 barn finds. The unique twist? Rather than the usual prewar or muscle car-era product out of Detroit, these cars are all beloved imported sports cars of a bygone era. Think Ferrari, Lamborghini, Jaguar, Aston Martin, Porsche, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, and others. There is even a Jay Leno-found 300SL Gullwing in the mix!
Although there is no shortage of barn-find tales surfacing these days, no collection covers exclusively the imported sports car icons that have become household names from an era past. All of the tales are told with full detail on how they were found and why they are special. If you are a sports car fan or just love a good automotive treasure hunt, this volume is an excellent addition to your library.
