Starting a thread to talk about the illusive barn find! A thread where you can share your stories about your own barn finds and not just limited to pinball. Personally I love hearing about barn finds in all hobbies, the history and how something was preserved for so long is just fun to read. So without further ado here is my only barn find story.
Like most pinsiders, I dabble in a few hobbies and Vintage Cars is one of them. I'm always looking on craigslist and other websites. The wife and I were hunting for a VW bus for years and looked at everything from rust buckets to professionally restored. We were discouraged and about to give up hope after being outbid in person, when I got an email from someone saying they heard I was interested in buying a vintage bus. We went and looked at it immediately and was blown away at what we saw. The car had been stored in a barn since the early 80's and had never seen a winter. The had also not seen the road in almost 12 years. After about two months of the buyer wanting to sell, and then getting cold feet we decided on a great price and the rest is history. The car has only 90k original miles on it and was used mostly as just a family camper.
Now share your story!
