Synopses & Reviews
Now in paperback for the first time, here is the classic version of a car lover's fairy tale: You look into an old abandoned barn or garage or warehouse--and there's the car you've searched for your whole life. Here are the true stories of people who found their dream cars in the most unlikely places: A man finds one of three King Cobras ever built in a junkyard in South Carolina; another discovers a rare Delahaye in a barn in the former Czech Republic; yet another answers an obscurely written ad in a local paper to discover a Triumph TR3 that had run the Daytona 24 Hour race in the early 1960s. The list goes on and on, and the stories never get old. Relive the excitement, glory in the astounding discoveries, and revel in the cars that keep dreams alive.
