About Barn Find
Whether it is a 1968 Corvette, a vintage Harley chopper, or a classic Ford from the 1940s, there is nothing more satisfying than a good barn find. Super-savvy flea market shoppers and quick-talking television pickers know that the value of vintage automobiles usually grows over time, sometimes by leaps and bounds. Although many people cringe at the idea of a restoration project, others relish the opportunity to get their hands dirty and return an antique barn find to its former glory. Fortunately, people do not have to travel to garages and barns across America to find great pieces. Sellers on eBay offer a host of quirky vehicles and parts, from skeletal Chevy frames to fully functional European motorbikes. A variety of project cars include rat rod and street rod vehicles in all shapes, sizes, and colors, as well as T-bucket two-doors, some already restored, some not. Motorheads looking for hard-to-find vintage auto parts often discover treasure among the "trash" in other people's possession — the true essence of a great barn find.
