More barn finds...

A New York man retired.
He wanted to use his retirement money wisely, so it would last, and decided to buy a home and a few acres in Portugal.
The modest farmhouse had been vacant for 15 years.
The owner and wife had both died, and there were no heirs.
The house was sold to pay taxes.
There had been several lookers, but the large barn had steel doors, and they had been welded shut.
Nobody wanted to go to the extra expense to see what was in the barn, and it wasn't complimentary to the property anyway......so, nobody made an offer on the place.
The NY guy bought it at just over half of the property's worth, moved in, and set about to tear into the barn.......curiosity was killing him.
So, he and his wife bought a generator, and a couple of grinders.......and cut thru the welds.
What was in the barn...? Go to <http://www.intuh.net...finds/afa70.htm> and start wishing you had bought the place!!

I've got shots from a paddock out at Binnaway where there's over 300 cars, a lot of junk included, but some prizes. And another bunch of stuff from near Inverell along with a lot of lesser 'collections'.

I know there's a wrecking yard 10ks south of Grafton that hasn't changed since the 80's. They have a business in town and for a fee will show you around the joint. There's a heap of 30's,40's and 50's tin hiding up there too.
Around near Newcastle there's a 1970's Rolls Royce sitting in a paddock slowly returning to nature. And there's a bunch of Rovers and Leylands behind a house past Rutherford. Also a small sports car shell (not sure which) sitting in the front yard of business in Tomago. I'll try and get some shot's next week if anyones interested.
