Back up a bit-the series really began because Cotter loves cars, and, like most of us who do, he dreamt of finding one in an old barn. He gathered all the stories he could find about such lost cars in his 2005 book, The Cobra in the Barn. The book became a national phenomenon that resonated with car buffs around the world. Since The Cobra in the Barn first appeared on bookshelves in 2005, author Tom Cotter has been uncovering four-wheeled fairy tales in which collectors find dream cars tucked away in barns, bedrooms, and foreign countries.

You're viewing YouTube in Russian. You can change this preference below. First start in over 40 years - resurrection restoration!!!

The Corvette story is neither the first nor the biggest one in this book, in fact .

The most amazing thing about these amazing stories is that they’re true. In the Foreword Keith Martin, publisher of Sports Car Market and Corvette Market, sums up the affliction nicely: And when my wife reads this introduction, she’ll know why it always seems to take me an hour longer to drive to the grocery store when I go alone that it does when we are together. Cotter says this book won’t be the last: If you keep reading, I’ll keep writing!

Cotters' adventures in automotive archaeology continue in The Hemi in the Barn, with more than forty new stories of amazing finds and automotive resurrections. Avid collectors big and small recall the thrills of the hunt, the tips and hunches followed, clues pursued, the heart-stopping payoff.

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.

It’s every car-guy’s fantasy—to casually peer into a long-forgotten garage or barn or warehouse and find the car he has searched for his whole life.

By far the best series of books on the topic of Barn-found automotive treasures. These books took a smoldering niche in the car collecting hobby, and ignited one of the hottest crazes ever in the classic car world. Cotter brought a topic that most gearheads have always found intriguing, into the mainstream. Anyone, from the casual car show attendee to the most serious of collectors, will enjoy the fascinating stories that he tells of finding automotive riches, and usually the history of previous ownership and the how or why these highly sought-after automobiles end up in these less-than-desireable resting places. Believe me, a truely great read.

In the second of his series, Tom Cotter (note to Amazon, Keith Martin is not the autor, he wrote ine forward) tells us more stories of people who have had the good luck to find some great old cars.
Some cars are valuable, some are not, some the finder can't keep or restore because of their high value, but even the serach can be fun.

I like it because you can read just a few stories at a time. It's a great "put down and pick up later" book.

The only fault I can find is it may make you awfully envious about the luck some guys have in finding (and owning) the cars.

All of these “in the Barn” books are very entertaining, a lot of fun to read, anyone that is interested in the car hobby will love it.

I bought Corvette in the Barn on the strength of how much I enjoyed Cobra and Hemi in the Barn. The book almost lived up to my expectations and was a good read, however, I noticed a few typos and a pair of mixed up pictures, which smacks a little of the book being rushed into production one final proof reading short. I also felt that about ~20% of the stories were a bit 'flat' - like they only got printed due to a lack of better material to fill the space. Don't get me wrong - I certainly enjoyed the book, and it is a good adition to the series, but not quite in the same league as the previous two. If you enjoyed Cobra and Hemi, then I would definitely recommend this one. I just hope that any future books in the series up the ante a little.

My 12 year old son loved this book.

You might think a barn find book would get a bit repetitive after the fourth or fifth Cobra or Hemi. But Tom mixes it up with stories of all different kinds of cars, trucks, hidden troves and even car parts. It's easy to get infected with barn find fever after reading these fun stories!

Love these stories. Could not put it down.
A gift for my son and he loves this kind of book. Got this one and a couple of others for him for Christmas. He was very happy.
