Look at this for a barn find....

http://www.interclassico.com/index.php?action=pach&id=89

180 cars found in a warehouse which was welded shut, they had to burn open the steel doors to gain access.
I particually like the 2 austin cooper s (yesa originals with twin tanks) cars.
What a find!

i found a bit out about them, apparently its a warehouse in portugal, the owner (a collector) put them in there about fifteen years ago and welded the doors shut???
Anyway the reason for it being opened up was something to do with the red cooper s???
This happened about a month ago.
Thats all i could find at present.

Yer I've see nthis link before wink

It's in Portuguese but translates to something along the lines of an old hanger had the doors welded shut for years, when someone cut the welds they found 180 of these inside!
