Ever dream you find an old barn and open it up and find an old rare car?

Ever dream you'd find 180 of them? At once?

I didn't understand a word they said....but I did recognize an Oldsmobile Cutlass amongst all that European iron.

Gotta wonder though if they're hot and who ever was storing them all those years ago ended up dead or something. But none the less it would be a great find.

judging by the inner walls (cinder block) it wasn't meant to be found in a hurry, reminds me of the bloke who found one of the first ever harleys made, it was under a heap of old carpets and stuff in an old shed on the property this guy bought in rural queensland, Morgan and Whacker one of the biggest harley dealerships chased him for two yrs trying to buy it back before aquiring it for a very,very large undisclosed sum of money

Wow!!! Surely makes one wonder what circumstances led to that. One or two old cars yeah, but 180??? Very cool find though.

This is what the outside of the "barn" looks like.

I don't see the forested tree area that was mentioned in the post. They made it sound like it was hard to find.
