Ultimate Barn Find

Having been stored in a barn for nearly 40 years, this Corvette remains in “as discovered” condition.

This Corvette, was purchased more than 40 years ago in California and was found in 2010 by Mike Yager. It was discovered more than 200 feet from the main county road off the beaten path in Central Illinois.

It was hidden from the road by trees and brush and surrounded by tall weeds. It was the inspiration to his book, “Corvette Bible”, and was featured in several magazines and automotive websites.

The door to this barn had been nailed shut for all of that time, nearly four decades. Still sitting on a car trailer when they opened it up was a 1957 Corvette.

This particular Corvette had a production number of 5,081 of 6,339 produced in 1957. It has a small block V-8, NOM.

Head on into the Dream Car Museum an take a look at it in person and don’t worry, we removed the dead squirrel so it wouldn’t stink. 🙂

Dream Car Museum visits Mecum Auctions

Larry and his crew recently visited Mecum Auctions in Kissimmee Florida. I won’t let the cat out of the bag, or rather the sign out of the crate yet but I will share with you a message from Jason, Museum Curator.

“Well, it’s been an amazing day for the Dream Car Museum here in Kissimmee Florida. Let me tell ya. If you’ve been through the museum before and loved it, just wait till you see what we have in store for you coming soon. Be on the look out for a whole new look coming very very soon. As always, we look forward to seeing you!”

I don’t know about you but that’s enough to get me excited!

I promise to let you know when the new displays are up. I may even try to sneak some pictures for you!
