Amazing Barn Finds and Roadside Relics, a new book by Motorbooks presents Musty Mustangs, Hidden Hudsons, Forgotten Fords, and Other Lost Automotive Gems across America. Take a look through the pages of this book and you will see amazing cars and trucks that have been abandoned in garages, fields, and old barns. A Classic Car enthusiast would kill to have some of these vehicles.
Discover the allure of forgotten cars through the pages of this new book by author, Ryan Brutt. Amazing Barns Finds makes a great coffee table book and has hundreds of color photos of forgotten dream cars for the true car enthusiast.
Something that to the rest of the world is nothing but a forgotten automotive hulk slowly degenerating into a pile of iron oxide is to the car enthusiast something so much more. Like those who restore Victorian homes or antique furniture, car guys see not a decrepit piece of junk, but a desirable object that “just needs some attention.” And should the vehicle abandoned in a field or lying in a creek bed be too far gone to resurrect, car enthusiasts can simply enjoy it for what it once was (while lamenting that it has come to such a sad end).
Finding a lost, restorable car is every auto collector’s dream! Amazing Barn Finds and Roadside Relics taps into the thrill of the hunt with hundreds of photos of lost cars – each accompanied by detailed information covering the nature of the find and details about the car. Ride along as author Ryan Brutt, the “automotive archaeologist,” travels the United States documenting lost and abandoned automotive gems.
