Wow! Man Buys House With A Locked Barn… And You Won’t Believe What Was Inside

OLD CAR

Man Buys House With A Locked Barn… And You Won’t Believe What Was Inside A retirement home seems to have turned into a gold mine for one very lucky man.

The unnamed man is said to have bought a farmhouse, which had lay vacant for many years, for himself and his wife.

The only slight stumbling block was the fact it came with a barn which was welded shut.

But he took a chance and bought the Portuguese property at a knockdown price and soon picked up some grinders to open the barn door.

And, boy, was he glad he did as he made an incredible discovery.

Inside were scores of vintage cars, including Aston Martins, Mercedes and various Lotus models. They are dusty but many remain road-worthy.

The total value of the lot runs to several million pounds.

But is this story too good to be true?

Online reports suggest the pictures are real – but are simply a car dealer’s collection stored in a barn.

Tom Cotter of Sports Car Market magazine is quoted by Snopes as saying: “Nobody would simply sell an old farm and fail to mention to the new owners the stash of old cars in the barn.”

Cotter added: “The owner of the cars was a car dealer in the 1970s and 1980s, and decided to save the more interesting cars that came through his doors.

“When the barn was full, he padlocked and “soldered” the doors shut.”
