Tom Cotter, Barn Find Hunter: 1,800 Classic Cars

Tom Cotter as the Barn Find Hunter has developed a cult following here in the UK, but how many people realise that Hagerty create the series? In this episode, he discovers the mother lode: 1,800 classic cars in one location in northern California. There are all sorts here, even a Jaguar XK150 with an Oldsmobile engine up front.

Then it’s on to a junk yard, where vehicles (like a 1939 Ford pickup, 1957 Thunderbird, and 1972 Datsun 510) have been accumulating for more than six decades. Farther down the road, Tom wins over a suspicious property owner who agrees to show him his 1956 Ford pickup, 1964 Chevrolet El Camino, 1968 Mercury Cougar, 1966 Ford Galaxie, and 1972 Ford Gran Torino.

    Tom, what is your e-mail address? I was in Washington state over the weekend and came upon a property full of old cars. I wanted to send you photos of them, the phone number on the sign out from and the address in case you are ever in the Bellingham area. It might be a good location for one of your shoots. There must of been 50 cars that I could see from the road and more in the back. Any questions, please call or text me at 224-628-1657. Jim
