Adventures of the Automotive Archaeologist.
I travel around looking for Barn Finds. I'll go in farmer's fields, junkyards, barns trying to find those elusive cars in barns. Because you never know what you are going to find. The best Barn Find might be just a barn away.
There's Mopars (and other makes) in that there Hills.... Part Four
Departing Bennington, Vermont, I was meeting up with my friend Art who lived not far from the Albany International Airport. I had some time to kill so I decided to do some sight seeing, barn finding style. First thing I came across is a Buick GN turbo car. Pretty cool and in decent shape. Sad to see it sitting outside a junkyard.
Just down the road there was a wrecked 56 Pontiac that I heard from the guys at Hemmings was wrecked not long ago. Ironically I did not grab a picture of this, but right across the street was a nice 69 Barracuda Notchback sitting out in the lawn with what looked like some nice paint applied.
Following the road a bit I didn't find anything, but when I turned around, there behind a mobile home sat what looks like a 71 Pontiac Trans Am. But with no time to investigate, I only snapped a quick picture and then headed on my way.
I flew the rest of the way into the Hudson River Valley. I had some time to kill so I drove around and discovered some very interesting vehicles. I couldn't identify all of them. I see some Edsel's, I believe some Mopar B-bodies and what looks like a Lancia.
But as with all great things, they must end. And I flew out that afternoon after having some fun with my friend in his beautiful Satellite Convertible. But who knows, I might be returning there in the near future.
Oh, and here is one more for the road, something a bit more artistic.
I hope you all enjoyed this little adventure. I sure did.
If you know of any cool Cars or Motorcycles in Barns, junkyards, farmers fields or squirreled away in a garage in the Mid-west, let me know. I am always up for a good hunt!
