Something that to the rest of the world is nothing but a forgotten automotive hulk slowly degenerating into a pile of iron oxide is to the car enthusiast something so much more. Like those who restore Victorian homes or antique furniture, car guys see not a decrepit piece of junk, but a desirable object that "just needs some attention." And should the vehicle abandoned in a field or lying in a creek bed be too far gone to resurrect, car enthusiasts can simply enjoy it for what it once was (while lamenting that it has come to such a sad end). Finding a lost, restorable car is every auto collector's dream! Amazing Barn Finds and Roadside Relics taps into the thrill of the hunt with hundreds of photos of lost cars - each accompanied by detailed information covering the nature of the find and details about the car. Ride along as author Ryan Brutt, the "automotive archaeologist," travels the United States documenting lost and abandoned automotive gems.

It seems every where you turn, on TV, at your library or favorite bookstore, Internet forums, and even social media, people are discovering and documenting the resurrection of old cars stored in barns, garages, and forgotten resting places. The common term for all this automotive archeology has become “barn finds” because many of these lost treasures are, literally, found in barns. And many of the finds have amazing stories. In Exotic Barn Finds, veteran author and historian Matt Stone tells the story of more than 25 barn finds. The unique twist? Rather than the usual prewar or muscle car era product out of Detroit, these cars are all beloved imported sports cars of a bygone era. Think Ferrari, Lamborghini, Jaguar, Aston-Martin, Porsche, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, and others. There is even a Jay Leno–found 300SL Gullwing in the mix! Although there is no shortage of "barn find" tales surfacing these days, no collection covers exclusively the imported sports car icons that have become household names from an era past. All the tales are told with full detail on how they were found and why they are special. If you are a sports car fan or just love a good automotive treasure hunt, Exotic Barn Finds is an excellent addition to your library or nightstand.

Abandoned cars on America's most iconic abandoned road. Sounds like a great idea for a road trip. For a nation that loves the idea of the road, there is no more legendary ribbon of highway than the 2,451 miles comprising historic Route 66. Along the Mother Road lies the detritus of the automotive age: motels, roadside attractions, diners, service stations, drive-ins, and dives. Hidden in, around, and behind its buildings or abandoned along its roadside hide collector cars, lost trucks, and moldering motorcycles. How could there be a better destination for automotive archaeologist Tom Cotter? In Route 66 Barn Find Road Trip Cotter and his BBF (best barn finder) pal Brian Barr jump on Route 66, just outside Chicago, seeking rusted gold in every state Route 66 passes through. Along the way, ace lensman Michael Alan Ross documents their finds, mishaps, and various adventures. Starting in the Midwest and barreling through Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico, the barn-find bunch continues on to Arizona before completing their quest in Santa Monica, California. You'll never guess what automotive treasure they see peeking out from corroded garages and behind weary buildings along the way. You can bet every awesome barn find was investigated and recorded in Route 66 Barn Find Road Trip. Whether you've only dreamed of retracing US 66 or are familiar with its path but never considered car hunting there, Route 66 Barn Find Road Trip will take you on the trip of a lifetime. Hop in; you can ride shotgun.

While some of the stories actually are about cars found in barns or sheds, author Wyss has taken the liberty of expanding the definition of "barn find" to include any collector car found derelict, ignored, in pieces, or generally found in circumstances belying its stature. This could include cars parked in fields, found in cellars, left in parking garages, or even found under a pile of cars in a junkyard. What the cars do have in common is that they are valuable and exotic and have histories chock full of unimaginable twists and turns. Take, for instance the Two Rotor Corvette, a car that cost GM $2 million to build and then they flat gave it away to the first guy that asked. Same thing for a GT40 roadster, one of four built, and Ford goes and hands the keys to a movie car customizer who kept it for decades and never quite got it up on the big screen. That car today is worth $4 million. So, if you're into collector cars and love the thrill of the hunt, then you'll truly appreciate the 50 stories Wyss has selected for this first in the series.

Ride along on the search for forgotten automotive gems in the Motor City. Detroit has been America's Motor City for decades. It's home to Ford, General Motors, and Chrysler, as well as numerous auto industry companies and specialty and speed shops. At the same time, it's the poster child for urban blight and dysfunction. It's truly a city of contrasts, which presented challenges and opportunities in equal measure to barn finder Tom Cotter. In Motor City Barn Finds, Cotter plies his trade in a locale rich with automotive history. Detroit's lost cars are abandoned in empty lots, resident in decrepit buildings, squirreled away in garages, and stashed in historic wrecking yards. Behind the wheel of his classic 1939 Ford Woodie, Cotter trolls the back streets and neighborhoods of this historic city looking for lost automotive gems accompanied by photographer Michael Alan Ross. As America's Motor City, Detroit is an emotional and historical mecca for car enthusiasts, capable of drawing hundreds of thousands of car people for events like Woodward Dream Cruise and attracting design-forward companies like Shinola. At the same time, it's intimidating to navigate, with numerous dodgy neighborhoods and risky abandoned factory sites. Add it all together and you have fascinating and intriguing opportunities to dig for barn-find gold.
