Since I put up these pictures here at the beginning of February 2007, the story of the Portuguese barn full of classic and not-so-classic cars seems to have taken on a life of its own. The interwebs have been abuzz with theories and somebody has even gone to the trouble of making up a story about it. Classic car lovers, treasure hunters and auction houses have all somehow contacted intuh.net in an effort to find out more. In order to stem the flow of e-mails and even telephone calls: here's all I know.
At the end of January 2007, I stumbled upon a Portuguese web forum with a thread that contained a large number of pictures of old cars left in a barn, somewhere in Portugal. The picture files themselves were hosted on the web site of a Portuguese classic car dealer, but were taken down after only a few days. I thought it would be a shame not to have them online, so I rescued them from my browser cache and put them up here, on intuh.net.
For all those who have been eagerly sending round e-mails about 'a New York man' having bought 'a piece of land in Portugal' for 'next to nothing', that happened to have this treasure-filled barn on it: I'm pretty much convinced that's an urban myth.
A much more credible story can be found here.

Desde mi puesto a esas imágenes aquí, en el comienzo de febrero de 2007, la historia del portugués granero lleno de clásicos y no tan clásicos parece haber adquirido una vida propia. El interwebs han sido las teorías y abuzz alguien ha ido a la molestia de hacer una historia sobre él. Amantes de los autos clásicos, la búsqueda del tesoro y todas las casas de subastas han contactado alguna intuh.net en un esfuerzo por saber más. Con el fin de detener el flujo de correos electrónicos e incluso llamadas telefónicas: aquí está todo lo que sé.
A finales de enero de 2007, me tropecé en un foro portugués con un hilo que contenía un gran número de fotografías de coches antiguos en un granero abandonado, en algún lugar de Portugal. Los archivos de imagen fueron alojados en el sitio web de un distribuidor de coche clásico portugués, pero se tomaron después de sólo unos pocos días. Pensé que sería una lástima no disponer de ellos en línea, así que me rescató de mi caché del navegador y ponerlas aquí, en intuh.net.
Para todos aquellos que han sido con impaciencia el envío de mensajes de correo electrónico redonda sobre 'el hombre de Nueva York "haber comprado" un pedazo de tierra en Portugal,' para 'casi nada', que pasó de tener este tesoro lleno de granero en ella: lo estoy bastante convencido de que es un mito urbano.
Una historia mucho más digna de crédito se puede encontrar aquí.

Portuguese barn houses 180 cars, all covered with decades of dust
Huge collections like the one in Portugal don't just happen. Cars are accumulated by someone with a purpose
By Tom Cotter
One day this January, I received at least ten forwarded email attachments to a web site that featured photos of an eclectic collection of old cars in a decaying building. For the next week it seemed the web was literally blanketed with these images, each giving a similar story:
“Imagine moving into an old farmhouse in the Portuguese countryside, and, while walking around “the lower 40” of your new investment, you come across an old building. Curious as to what may be inside, you pry open the rusted door and for the first time in decades, one of the largest hordes of old cars ever discovered is exposed to sunlight.”
I didn’t believe that story for a moment.
Huge collections of cars don’t just happen. Cars are accumulated—sometimes lovingly, sometimes not—by someone with a purpose. I was sure this collection was not assembled by accident; nobody would simply sell an old farm and fail to mention to the new owners the stash of old cars in the barn.
I decided to investigate. I searched the web and ultimately came to an English language dead end at the Mazda Miata Club Norway web site. But I kept going, sending emails in English and hoping that some kind recipient would take a few moments to answer some questions. All indications were that the cars were hidden somewhere in Portugal, so that’s where I focused my investigation.
Through a Cobra buddy, Don Silawski of Washington, DC, I contracted with a Portuguese translator, Clara Dixon. Clara would be my tour guide and try to unearth some of the naked truth regarding this huge stash. Clara also checked the Internet for news stories that may have been written in Portuguese newspapers about the cars. I was beginning to feel like a CIA sleuth…
I must admit that for me, a lifelong barn-finder, a collection this large would be the discovery of a lifetime. My 15-year-old son, Brian, even tried to convince me to hop a flight to Portugal to see if I could actually find the collection myself.
I was eventually able to contact the photographer who was contracted by the cars’ owner to shoot the photographs that would ultimately appear on millions of car-guy computer monitors beginning on January 20.
THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY
Manuel Menezes Morais shot the photos, but he was sworn to secrecy about the cars’ location and the owner’s name. However, he was able to obtain permission from the elusive owner to give me the following information:
The owner of the cars was a car dealer in the 1970s and 1980s, and decided to save the more interesting cars that came through his doors. When the barn was full, he padlocked and “soldered” the doors shut. (Perhaps welding was too permanent.)
Web sites varied on the number of cars: 58, 100, and 180 were speculated. According to Morais, there are 180 cars in the barn.
And, aw shucks, none of the cars is for sale.
Clara was able to determine that the cars are located somewhere in the area of Sintra, near Lisbon. I asked Morais if he could ask the owner if he had a favorite car. “He has lots of good cars in very good condition,” he says, “but he loves the Lancia Aurelia B24. He has two.”
I would ask that a European-based SCM subscriber pick this story up and help fill in the blanks. And let me know what you find (firstname.lastname@example.org). I’d like to include the true story in a future In the Barn book, as well as in SCM.
So, what's in there?
