Isn't this from a story about 2 or 3 months ago. I think the barn was in Portugal or something.

It's pretty much the exact same story as any "barn find". A somewhat eccentric person who wants to save a car much like you or I would save a piece of our past. We all have some trinkets saved around our home and garage, I have things out in my garage like white wall slicks from a "Big Deuce" model on a shelf and stuff like that. Then there are people like a guy I know who stuck his 34 Ford three window coupe that be bought in highschool in the late sixties in a 40 foot deep two car garage and built a wall behind it without a door! He has rented this home out to people for thirty years with this car behind the wall in the garage!

This guy with the barn in Portugal, no different, he just had more money and access to cars than my buddy or me with my 1/8 scale M&H Dragmasters.

By the way, I assume the "soldering" of the door is a European term for welding.

Barn find

Wow there isn't a car there that I wouldn't want. I'd love to just walk around in that barn. Some dreams do happen. Eddie.

What surprised me was all the left hand drive cars. Many of them had spedos in kilometers vice MPH. I do not remember Portugal having anything but right hand drive and driving "on the wrong side" of the road. Still a nice collection of iron to convert to street rods, gassers etc.

Maybe it's a collection of stolen vehicles. That could be part of the reason the doors were welded closed...
