OK guys, drop what you are doing right now and check out the books by Tom Cotter!
This man has spent his adult life finding barn cars, meeting other guys who have found barn cars, and writing books about barn cars. His books have engaging stories about real guys like us who have always dreamed of finding treasure in a barn, garage, back lot or a junk yard and, through persistence, struck gold. The pages are filled with great prose and terrific “before” and “after” photos. He is the master of automotive archeology!
I met Tom over the telephone a few weeks ago and have finished reading “The HEMI in the Barn”. I couldn't put it down. His other books include: “The Corvette in the Barn”; “The Cobra in the Barn”; and “TV Tommy Ivo”. I just bought the "Corvette in the Barn" and will be reading it this week!
Tom has appeared on the Jay Leno show and Jay wrote the foreword to “The HEMI in the Barn”. Here is a great interview with Jay:
Tom’s next book will be “101 Barn Cars That You Wish You Had Found!” Wouldn’t it be cool if “Operation Corvette Rescue” appeared in Tom’s next book?
