Default Portugal barn find

New York man retired. He wanted to use his retirement money wisely,
so it would last, and decided to buy a home and a few acres in
Portugal .

The modest farmhouse had been vacant for 15 yrs.; the owner and wife
both had died, and there were no heirs.

The house was sold to pay taxes.

There had been several lookers, but the large barn had steel doors,
and they had been welded shut. Nobody wanted to go to the extra
expense to see what was in the barn, and it wasn't complimentary to
the property anyway......so, nobody made an offer on the place.

The NY guy bought it at just over half of the property'* worth, moved
in, and set about to tear in to the barn.......curiosity was killing
him.

So, he and his wife bought a generator, and a couple of
grinders.......and cut through the welding.

What was in the barn......... ......?

WOW. That is freaking amazing. Why can't buy a house and find a Yenko Camaro sitting under a cover in a barn? :(
