X-Mas Barn Find

Recommended Posts

If this happened to me, it wouldn't matter what the car was because I would drop dead from the shock if my wife did this. I have two antique cars and she thinks that's two too many. She's told me that once I retire, I'll have to stop going to Hershey and I told her that's not on the table so don't even bring it up. I've always wanted an Edsel or a Ford Skyliner, so those would be my first two choices, third would be a '64 Galaxie 500XL 4 door hardtop.

If that 1915 (or Early-Production 1916) Cadillac Touring happened to show up, I guess we could find a place to garage it.

Maybe Billybird could free up a spot for me?

Of course a Red 1956-1957 Corvette with white coves would always be welcome, too.

Then again, a 1959-1960 Cadillac ElDorado convertible could work its way into our hearts.

Knowing my luck, it would probably be a 72 Pinto......

That's too funny! Almost made the orange juice come out my nose. That hasn't happened since grade school :)

I'm with Steve and West - a Series 1 E-type coupe would be my dusty dream. I had the pleasure of using a very well sorted one for a whole day, long time ago. Like Marty says, it's rare among famously beautiful cars - even more wonderful to drive than to admire. It fit me perfectly, was solid as a vault, and all the machinery worked in smooth synchronicity. Sweet memory.

Almost forgot - when wifey saw this same car, years later, she snorted, "It looks like a giant [male organ of reproduction]!"

I'd like my wife to retrieve my 56 Victoria. Bought for $35 I loaned it to a friend whose mother promptly had it towed away. She thought it was an eyesore

a crusty old Mercer raceabout with 112 original miles on it!

I'm thinking yellow, but red would be alright.... :)

A 1911 Stoodard Dayton roadster. The one once owned by the Scripps Booth family that was featured in Antique Automobile in 1974 after visiting Hershey. Nothing less would do. ;) Dandy Dave!

57 Ford fairlane 500 2 door hardtop. Black and yellow with the police interceptor engine would be great to bring back my youthful thoughts.............

We're dreaming, right? My first thought was a '34 Packard Victoria but then I thought a 1938-40 Cadillac convertible sedan would be nice. Then my mind strayed to postwar and I remembered I always wanted a 46-48 Chrysler Town & Country convertible but a '58 Edsel Citation convertible or a '59 Buick Electra convertible would be just great, but no matter what I consider I always come back to a '56-57 Continental MK II, which by the way is the only non-convertible on my list, and then I think, well, a 1940's woodie wagon would be great. Then I become realistic and remember I already have them all, in 1/18th scale diecast and that for me is the only way to go and once again I'm back down to earth, dreaming over and by the way, my latest acquisition is a 1962 Pontiac Catalina Super Duty that i found a week ago.

The more I think about it I need a bigger barn more than another car. Maybe she will just buy me the barn:)

A favorite barn find would be a 1934 Graham Blue Streak Convertible Coupe, with Rumble seat and the Supercharged 8 under the hood!!
