We have all heard of barn finds; cars that were parked in barns for decades and left to rust and rot in the combination of rat shit and bad air. There are stories of absolute gems being uncovered, from Lamborghinis to muscle cars and everything in between. But when did the hobby of searching for these barn finds begin? Who started it all? Meet Tom Cotter. He’s been barn hunting since he was 11-years-old. He’s 61 today and now travels the US in the sweet-sounding 1939 Ford Woodie Wagon. His passion is discovering forgotten vehicles in not only barns, but also in junkyards and the backyards of creepy people. Well, you know, the ones your parents told you to stay away from as the kid. But Cotter’s been doing this a long time and Haggerty has given him his own web series, appropriately titled Barn Find Hunter.
That was nuts. Wait until you see the next video below.
