In this episode of Barn Find Hunter, Tom Cotter returns to the scene of his latest, greatest find: a garage in suburban Charlotte, North Carolina, housing five forgotten cars. Among them are a 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/2 Long-nose Alloy coupe and a 1967 Shelby Cobra 427. The uninhabited house and garage have been condemned by the local municipality and are scheduled for demolition soon, so the cars need to be moved to a secure location. With no local towing companies willing to take on the risk of moving such valuable cars, Tom and his friends set out to transport this amazing stash to a warehouse where they’ll reside until being offered at Gooding & Company’s Amelia Island Auction on March 9, 2018.

BARN FIND HUNTER: Tom Cotter literally wrote the book(s) on barn finds, starting with The Cobra in the Barn. Tom travels North America in his 1939 Ford Woodie Wagon, searching for forgotten classics in barns, backyards, dusty garages, and scrapyards and meeting the fascinating characters who open the barn doors for him and tell him their stories.
