If you’re into cars you read about such things happening and wish it would happen to you. Alex Lloyd on the big find:
It’s not uncommon for rare vehicles to surface in a barn or rundown garage, encrusted in decades of dust, itching to be sold for a handsome profit. What is rare, however, is to find a one-owner, 1969 Shelby Mustang GT500 — one of only about 1,000 ever made — resurface in its original condition, fastidiously maintained and never washed for fear of damaging the paint, with only 8,500 miles on the clock.
The original owner bought the car in 1969 for $5,245.97 (a fortune back then).
