O/T Ultimate barn find

Okay, so imagine you live in Portugal and you're moving house. You find a lovely farm house set in a decent plot of land. The place has been empty for 15 years!

Whilst exploring your new property you find a large barn in the trees. The door is padlocked shut and it's all rusted solid. So you grind the padlock open.........

WOW! If you call that a barn, I geuss what we have for barns are actually sheds! Looked more like a bomb shelter.

I can't read the language at that other forum but I have a hard time believing someone can buy a home and a piece of property of ANY size and have NO clue that there is a "barn" that freakin big on it. That looks to be somewhere between 20k - 30k square feet. That's NOT a barn.

Re: O/T Ultimate barn find

damn!

Oh, I had one of these! Mine was a '65 MKII. FUN Car... until the brakes went out and I wraped it around a tree.

Re: O/T Ultimate barn find

I think I would be leaving very quickly while looking behind me for a guy carrying a big knife and wearing a hockey mask...how else do you explain how all those cars got there...
