This car is selling for more than $20,000 with 6.5 days left in the auction. Really? This proves to me that I don't know a darned thing about vintage cars. Nothing!

Barn Finds

I've been in a lot of barns in the last 50 years and have not discovered even one "barn find." This is obviously a city term! Barns are for livestock! Machine sheds are for newer "rolling stock" and implements. Farmers pull old worn out machinery to the edge of the woods and let it rust down in peace.

Gregg, that is what the Farmer did. He let the 190Sl Rust in Peace till some City Slicker found it underpaid the Farmer and now makes a pretty $$.
