Never judge a building by the color of its walls. It may appear old and boring, but you never know whats hiding inside.
For more than 40 years, a barn in Texas was left untouched. Until one day, it was opened only to find out that what it keeps inside will make any classic car collector’s dream come true.
In the clip below, Antonio Burnet, the founder of Motostalgia Auctions, shares how his team discovered the treasures inside a Texan barn that was only miles away from their main office.
The barn was believed to be owned by a man named Jack. Long ago, he decided to move all his luxurious vintage car collection to Texas. He was hoping that one day, he can save up more money to restore his precious automobiles.
Unfortunately, the day never came, and his impressive collection just sat on his dusty storage for years.
In May 2015, Burnet and his team were able to get inside the barn, and they couldn’t believe the sight they saw—a 1908 REO Model G Boattail Roadster/Sedan Tonneau, a 1923 Milburn Electric Model 27L, a 1932 Cadillac 370B V-12 Victoria Convertible, a 1933 Cadillac Model 370C V-12 Town Coupe, a 1938 Cadillac Series 90 V-16 Fleetwood Limousine, and a twice-used 1937 Kozy Coach Travel Trailer.
The vintage cars, though manufactured before World War II, were all in surprisingly good condition. Through the efforts of Burnet and his crew, these vehicles will soon find their new owners who will treasure and appreciate them for the years to come.
