Barn Storm
A married couple bought some property in Portugal. The property had a lovely farmhouse and a large barn. No one had lived in the house or on the property for 15 years. The new owners, while exploring their property, decided to look in the barn, which they had not entered before purchasing the property.

The barn door was padlocked and welded shut.

The new owners ground off the padlock and the welds, and voila!

Thanks, Ant. Hadn't seen that one. Regardless of why, what an awesome collection of vintage hardware under all that dust.

I'd settle for just the Porsche 356 and be a very happy camper. First Porsche
I drove (way back when) was a silver-grey '56 356. Wadda machine. There's very few cars even today that corner as well -- and do we really need AC?

From Snopes:

"Tom Cotter of Sports Car Market magazine found (by tracking down the photographer) that the owner of the barn (and the 180 or so vintage cars contained within) was not a lucky buyer who had just purchased the property.

"The owner was an automobile dealer in the '70s and '80s who had built up his assemblage of cars over the years and stashed it in the barn (locking the structure up when it was full) and who simply hired a photographer recently to document his collection."

You're right; fake story or not, it is an impressive lot of cars.
