Barn Finds

Recommended Posts

So my dad sent me an email that I loved but found it hard to swallow that someone would sell off a sealed barn full of auto's for pennies and not look to see what was in it first.

Yet here is an amazing barn find.

Here is the research done to get a better grab on the story, but I have to say I would love some of these old cars.

I was in a neat ex-cattle barn Tuesday night, it housed a late model Corvette, a real solid '56 Buick Century coupe, a '54 Packard Super Clipper coupe, a '59 Olds Delta 88 4-dr flattop, a pair of '30-31 Ford coupes, (2) '62 Tempest LeMans. The '54, '56, '59, and the '30s have been there for decades (which the dust coating confirms), the owner stores them there and pays his rental fee quarterly, without fail. They are reportedly not for sale. The one '30 was last on the road in 1975.

The Super Clipper was really tugging my coat sleeve hard.

Question is, would he even know they were gone?

      The average age of a vehicle in the U.S. has hit a record high. According to Experian Automotive, the average age of the 245 million vehicles registered in the U.S. during the first quarter of 2012 was 11 years. That's an increase of just over 2 months when compared to last year.
      Experian Automotive goes onto say that more than 52 million cars and trucks in the U.S. are 16 years or older.
      Experian Automotive's analysis also found that Ford has the most models on the road compared to any other automaker. That really shouldn't come as a surprise since the Ford F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in the U.S. for 30 straight years. The top four automakers with the oldest models on the road include;
      Ford: 17.2%
      Chevrolet: 15.8%
      Honda: 10.4%
      Toyota: 7.3%

      The four most popular models are;
      Ford F-150: 3.4%
      Honda Accord: 2.6%
      Toyota Camry: 2.6%
      Chevrolet Sliverado: 2.0%

      Why are there more old vehicles on the road? For one, the recession and sluggish recovery has caused people put off buying or trading-in for a new or used car. Also, vehicles are just better built. During the 90's, improvement in quality picked up serious momentum.
