I apologiZe for running on so much lately, I'm just trying to keep everybody sane during the Z-less winter.

Here's a tremendous barn find. There's a video imbedded in it but it won't let me see it, maybe you can.

There are SO many outstanding, heart-wrenching cars on this property, I am actually left not knowing what to say.

Just watch.

Hey Frank, keep on posting, yep keeps us all sane!
Those Barn Find videos by Tom Cotter are wonderful, just You Tube and you can spend some serious time viewing. Also has a great line of books, The Cobra in the Barn, The Hemi in the Barn etc, lots of great discovery stories in each book.
Colin and I met Tom at the Lime Rock Historics Parade on the Thursday before the Labor Day main event, after a romp through the CT Northwest corner the parade ends In Falls Village for a great party.
He is such an incredible car guy, super friendly and knowledgeable. After the event I sent him some photos of him and the car, he invited me to his home in NC for a Woody event he host every year, never made it.
He had his Barn Find Cunningham at the event, some photos attached of Tom and his wife, plus the Cunningham.
Colin
the older one.

:shock: Wow! One of the original C-3s, driven by two of my true American heroes! :thumbs_up:

Of course if it was a company flagship car, Fitch's name was probably on the door just to advertiZe him as a company racer. He might not have actually raced that particular car, altho he undoubtedly appeared in it for the public.

Big Chrysler Firepower Hemi V8 with quad Stromberg downdraughts (maybe Rochesters). At LRP I once saw a late-50s Cadillac with 8 downdraughts. Got a picture of that in another computer somewhere.

How I envy your car life. I'll bet you get Christmas cards from some very interesting people. 8)
