You gotta love how they didn't even remove the bird crap off it.  These auction houses really know how to play up the "barn find" thing. God forbid someone clean it, you might lose a couple hundred thousand dollars in hype.

There's a "barn find kit" that comes with various types of crap that you scatter here and there. Comes with three bags, fine dust, medium grit and heavy debris.

I think there is an option for a bag of rust particles, hay, chicken feathers as well?

The barn find thing is like an Easter egg hunt. Many are foolish enough to fall for all of this BS. The US is dealing with a National IQ average of around 100. Some states are worse than others are. No surprises there?

Gomer Pyle and Forest Gump rule here. If you are smarter than them then you are just referred to as a Liberal? Vocabulary being very limited as it were. Wink

I wonder how many barn finds are actually staged given the current hyping. I can remember a mecum auction in the last few years where next to the dusty barn find Charger (I think) was a picture depicting the barn it was found in. The rutted trail under the hay litter(that they had attempted to cover up ) could still be made out where the heavy bales were dragged to be staged . The hay bales were of a more modern size and shape then the era they were depicting in the picture. There were other "tells".  It was funny but at the same time very fraudulent.

My impression is that many if not most are staged? There really aren't many million dollars cars stashed in barns by unknowing owners not knowing what they are?

You don't get one of those cars casually. Some people just believe in unicorns I suppose? The "Barn Find" thing just feeds into that? After all, it's secret. No one knows about it. You can find gas for $.50 a gallon on this thing called the 'Internet', oh, but you need electricity! That's very important.  Wink

While I might keep a "Barn Find" in its as found condition for a short period of time, I would feel compelled to clean and polish.
I'd rather enjoy a nice looking survivor than a pile of turd. They weren't built that way, so why keep them that way?

Barn Finds are the current fad.

Remember Billet everything 15-20 years ago? Thankfully that passed too.  Roll Eyes

The ones that I laugh at are the Articles that call it a "Barn Find" because it was in a Garage or Shop sitting for 5, 10, 15 Years.
