The story behind this saga of the mysterious old car collection is long, twisted and still uncertain. Some time ago someone anonymously posted pictures of dozens or more classic cars covered in dust and apparently hidden away in a barn.
As the story made its rounds of the internet speculation grew. The most credible-seeming story comes from someone who claims to have tracked down the owner - a retired businessman who kept the best cars from his car-sale days for himself.
While it would be nice to imagine that someone simply found this amazing stash of cars it is clear that such a thing does not simply assemble itself - so this story appears to make the most sense. But, to this day, no one really knows for sure.
Since I put up these pictures here at the beginning of February 2007, the story of the Portugese barn full of classic and not-so-classic cars seems to have taken on a life of its own. The interwebs have been abuzz with theories and somebody has even gone to the trouble of making up a story about it. Classic car lovers, treasure hunters and auction houses have all somehow contacted intuh.net in an effort to find out more. In order to stem the flow of e-mails and even telephone calls: here's all I know.
