Barn Find Loaded With Classic Mopars

We’ve all seen the TV shows where the guys from the auto shop come across amazing barn find cars that they buy and then restore to their former glory. Like me though, you’re probably pretty skeptical about the legitimacy of these “finds” sometimes. After all, we all know there isn’t an awful lot of reality in reality TV, is there?

Barn finds

However, the truth is that there really are barns full of old cars all over the country, and the ones we actually know about probably doesn’t even start to scratch the surface of what there still is out there. The selection of classic Mopars in this video is pretty amazing, even though there’s a huge amount of work that needs to be done on many of them to bring them back to life.

So, how do you actually end up with a collection like this? Most of us find ourselves having to dig deep enough as it is to fund our daily driver, so the idea of having just one other car for a bit of fun is beyond many of us. But then we see all these people that have what often turns out to be dozens or more cars just sat around rusting in barns, many of which can be worth a small fortune, even in their current state of disrepair.

The owners of these collections are usually massive car guys that often have a deep affection for one particular brand. They build up these collections over long periods of time but rarely get around to restoring most or even any of them, before seemingly moving onto buying the next.

The good news story here though is that these collections do get found, and we have to hope that many of the Daytonas, Talladegas, Superbirds and Cyclones in this collection will eventually find their way into the hands of people willing and able to restore them. Just take a look at the video and imagine what you’d like to be able to do with your particular favorite.
