Sixty classic cars unearthed after 50 years in massive barn find

Sixty classic cars unearthed after 50 years in massive barn find | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
From Corvettes to Aston Martins, the rising prices commanded by classic cars — especially unrestored, mostly original examples — has created a goldmine for those who hunt for old vehicles rotting away unattended in some barn. Today, a French auction house revealed a discovery it called the King Tut of barn finds; a treasure trove of 60 European cars, including a rare Ferrari missing for decades, that had been slowly decaying in western France.

Oh the things those old barns can hide...

Matthew Humenik's curator insight, December 9, 11:33 AM
This is an unbelievable find, which could be considered the same as winning the lottery. One of these cars is worth around the $15 million dollar range meaning it is was of the rarest cars to be found.

1857 keepsake book with locks of hair and other ephemera - John Bunyan's Holy War

1857 keepsake book with locks of hair and other ephemera - John Bunyan's Holy War | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

John Bunyan is better known for his Pilgrim's Progress, but his "Holy War..." is similar: A classic Christian allegorical novel. This 1857 decorative edition is bound in bright red cloth boards with a gilded spine. It belonged to a Susan Angelica Getty, whose name is inscribed in the front and who seems to have used the book as a keepsake album: It contains 8 different locks of hair. I also found a sentimental poem cut from a newspaper and a large, four leaf clover pressed between the book's many pages.

"Bill bought it out of an old church," Haan told ABC News of the 1929-built organ. "We took it apart and moved it in and it took about five-and-a-half years, but that was the time we took because we had other work, too."
