I get the allure of a “barn find” – the idea that a classic car was driven hard and put away wet in some shed somewhere, left unnoticed until some intrepid explorer found it years later. But in what kind of barn was this car stored? It looks like it was pulled from the pig sty, not the barn. Of course, it’s hard to tell from the vaseline-lensed Craigslist photos, but maybe you could just hose off that mud, pigeon droppings, and whatever else is caked on the body and find a nearly pristine old convertible. Knowing my luck, that stuff would require a DA sander and 45-grit sandpaper, and all I’d uncover was some Bondo-bucket with a ruined soft top.
