How'd You Like to Find this is a Barn??? MUST SEE!

How would you like to have bought this property?
You find a lovely farmhouse set on a decent plot of land. The place
has been empty for 15 years...
While exploring your new property you find a large barn.
The door is padlocked and welded shut and it's all rusted solid.
So you grind the padlock and the welds off and find this....

I don't know what the property is worth, But I bet the guy can pay for it and make a nice profit from his "find". As long as he can claim owner ship

There is a lot of Poo on those cars, so expect the paint to be dead.

This one also

This one isn't enough so he had to post it a second time. What's your thinking man? Would you please remove it and place it in a proper place? All those junky old Italian cars, (mostly) with a lot of bird doo and Brit cars with Lucas lectrics and I doubt if there is a diesel in the bunch. Sad, sad, sad that there is no diesel in there.

Somehow it reminds me of my "uncle" that collected Studebakers. He had hundreds of the things. The odd part was that each and everyone one of them was capable of starting and running.

It's Portugal, weird stuff, find the right person, make some money. All he needs to do is get together with the Ebay chap out in California that takes pictures by the bay. I can only imagine the stories and the lines of b.s.
