Barn Finds for MCACN
      #7892592 - Fri Oct 18 2013 08:37 PM

Hey Guys and Gals.

I hope you all had a good summer and are enjoying the fall.

Next month is the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals... lets not concentrate on the Vette part... there is very few of them.

I am running the Barn Finds display for the second year in a row. Last year was a phenomenal success and was in all the major magazines.

This year we are expanding the section, and we have a ton of cars, but few Mopars.

I NEED MOPAR BARN FINDS. If you guys have on and are willing to bring it to Chicago, IL next month. Let me know. More information at the web address below.

Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals













Also I have a new blog post about some Mopars in Tractor Trailers....

I honestly don't think that there are that many out there anymore, thinking that they are being posed for MEDIA attention or magazine time...Its all all about the money and fame....

what about cars found right under everyones nose like in NY city or the few I know about in fairly new subdivisions in the west burbs of Chicago. But I guess Barn is the buzz word.

There are still plenty out there. And the Media, myself or otherwise just like show that there is still stuff out there, hidden away. I just do it for fun. And throw it to the magazines to cover the expenses, which it doesn't. But oh well. I like the adventure, never knowing what you might find.

Perfect example is the blog I posted above. I had no idea what the guy had, do I need to do a multi-part blog about it? No. But I will, cause it is cool.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/hemipwr70/collections/72157600719194924/

And "Barn Find" is a generic term. Used to be a "cars in a barns". It is a general term to signify a car that has been sitting for a long time neglected. It could be a junkyard find, garage find, etc...

rhino talked me into going into this show a few years ago and i do gotta say it is one of the top shows i look foreward to each year. the initial sticker shock of the entrance fee quickly went away once i stepped inside. first class show to say the least. so much so i volunteer to help out devil with the barn finds display.

Even up here in the boonies as you call it, still cars hid away . A 1969 GT 350 Rustang was sitting in a garage less than 15 min from my house , it was there for 20 years and nobody but the owner knew . A friend of mine who is a Ferd man lived directly across the street from where this car was and he didn't even know. until it was being put on the carrier . sale price $20,000.00 and in pristine condition .

Would you be interested I'm either of my cars for the barn find section? The Barracuda was ran alot at Oswego in the early 70s as Proud Rebel by Ed Grief then changed to Mister X. The second car is a Sox and Martin built Pro Stock Duster built for and raced by Reid Whisnant. I will post pics from back in the day and now. Please call if you are interested in them for the show.

This is EXACTLY what we are talking about. We have openings for two more cars, and yours would be perfect for this area.

Expect to see this section doubled in size this year, with about 20 cars. We have representation from Dodge, Plymouth, Ford, Chevy, Pontiac, Mercury, Oldsmobile and even a Henry J based old school car and a '40 Willys.

Would certainly like to fill the last remaining spots with some Mopars!

Thanks for the lead on these two, Diego; these cars are certainly going to blow people away. I can just see it now..."why are these here?" then a glance under the hood and into the interior to reveal exactly why they are there!

How about a 68-1/2 Torino Cobra that is still lettered up and shows under 1000 original miles? Knew where it had been sitting. Also a 70 RR 383 4spd in old school lacquer in the hand of same owner since 72 and has been sitting for years in a garage.

Glad you enjoyed the blog. Unfortunately my Grandmother's cancer decided to go into overdrive. So I had to Cannonball home before the end. Here are pictures from the end of the trip.

The display is actually called "Barn Finds & Hidden Gems" and is included in our show to encourage people with rare or unusual cars to be a part of the show, even if they aren't necessarily "pretty" or shiny. Each and every car in this display will be something special for one reason or another, not just someone's old never finished Camaro or beater!

Besides...it is just plain fun and was a HUGE hit last year with 13 cars. This years display will feature 18 cars, or 20 if we can get StreetKing to bring his in!
