DONT READ THIS IF YOU ARE SHORT ON TIME!!!

This is the "Barn-Find" people only read about--but it just happened to me. I can get prices and pictures on any of this stuff--it's ALL here, and in place. Only a few know about the gems inside, and I catalogued it ALL for your reading pleasure. Anyone interested in cars or parts? Let me know! What an impressive list!!!

The list is quite extensive, so I included the non-Corvette stuff too. This is a private collection in Alberta--and I think the owner is at the age where he wants to get rid of his stuff. No pictures were allowed (on this visit), but I spent a day starting cars, looking at things, and snooping around. I have a line on anything you see on this list!!

Let me know if anyone might be interested, although I am not trying to sell anything--I stumbled across this by accident while I was talking to someone about camper-vans........

Without further adieu, imagine walking into a strangers yard and seeing this:

That's quite the list. Would be great to have a look around this place.
So is there going to be an auction?
 
No auction--everything listed is for sale though.

I am going to try and get the green light to take some pictures though. Most of the catalog was copied and pasted then my own comments added. I did get to start a few cars, and drove several others--although not for any length of time. Just put it in gear and around the driveway.

there's other stuff there too (memoriabilia, clothes, you name it). I took his old list, and crossed-out stuff that was already gone, and then looked closer at some of the other. I really want to go back........I'd love to have this collection on my yard.
 
I started going cross-eyed near the end of the list! Did anybody get a count of the number of vehicles? Hard to fathom.
 
You wanted pics--here's a few pictures I snapped off today. The Challenger and Ferrari are INCREDIBLE, so I went back to start them up. The 'Vette stuff is IMO a major project, and not worth doing, but I'll show some pics of that. He has a school bus and cube van full of parts--enough parts to bring that 69 Roadster back to life.

Parts of body.



My internet connection is really crappy in this hotel, but I will post some more pics in a few days.
 
Hey Vince.......in his memorabilia....did he have any old Jersey Gas Pumps or porcelain gas station signs??

I am so impulsive....thank god i wasn't on site at the barn.....or the wife would have to park outside.....

Cheers, Fitzy
 
I will try getting more pics. I sent some directly to another member, but my phone isn't hooked up to email, so I can't get them to photobucket..........

Anyway, I do believe there was some old neon gas signs, but they weren't for sale. There was a cool 1950s pinball machine which was. I thoughtnit would look dynamite in the mancave!
 
I'm digging the Magnum PI Ferrari myself. The show was lame but I always wanted his car.
