Collection of California cars need new homes | Barn Find Hunter – Ep. 37

When there are a pair of unlikely vehicle Frankensteins suffering half a mile from the Mexican border, leave it to Tom Cotter to sniff them out. These homemade Volvo and Mercedes pickup, parked in a garage prior to being sculpted from bits of old Fords as well as dining establishment refrigerators, find company with a hoard of various other surprise classics. Two 1951 Packards, a 1939 Buick, and also a 1930 Plymouth-all of them to buy. Tom continues the search somewhere else, on a messy rental lot where he locates a complete Dodge Omni GLH and also reminisces about the early days of the warm hatch. Between the barbed cord and chunks of scrap steel, he encounters an El Camino, a Plymouth Road Jogger, and a set of MG Midgets.

      and they accidentally reset the clock and forgot that was still going down the track and hadn’t reached a quarter mile yet.
