Details: Product Description It’s every car lover’s fantasy: the perfectly preserved classic automobile discovered under a blanket in some great-granny’s garage. And as author Tom Cotter has discovered time and again, it’s a fantasy that can come true. The Hemi in the Barn offers more than forty stories of amazing finds and automotive resurrections. Avid collectors big and small recall the thrills of the hunt, the tips and hunches followed, clues pursued, the heart-stopping payoff. There’s the forgotten Duesenberg—probably one of the last unrestored ones around—that Jay Leno found in a Burbank garage. Unbelievably, Leno found another Duesenberg in a parking garage in New York City—a car that was parked in 1933 and never moved. There’s a Plymouth Superbird found buried in a hedge in Alabama. There’s the rescue of the first 1955 Corvette ever built. As entertaining as these tales are, they’re also full of tantalizing hints and suggestions for readers setting off on their own adventures in automotive archaeology. Review Hemmings Muscle Machines, August 2007 “The book is highly entertaining, often exciting and should hold universal appeal for all car enthusiasts.”                                  Car Collector Magazine, December 2007 “Cotter manages seven chapters in his latest automotive archeology book, ranging from a simple phone call to come look at a car, like my experience, to the most bizarre chances of luck, and a few adventures (misadventures) in foreign countries that could have gone wrong, very wrong. Cotter has 39 great stories in this book, with cars valued from just a few thousand dollars to the high six figures. The author also gives readers the benefit of his experiences with an appendix containing 20 Barn-Finding Tips. From domestic work-a-day cars to muscle cars, racecars, sports cars and rare American and European classics, there are stories to delight, entertain, and inspire in this work. The Hemi in the Barn is a good read, and the operative word is read because this is a story book, and all the heroes have wheels.” Edmunds.com, June 2007 “Tom Cotter's sequel to last year's best-selling The Cobra in the Barn relays one great tale after another, with players unearthing rare cars to die for. The treasures include an armored Mercedes-Benz Aktion P command car discovered in pieces in Russia, a desirable Dodge Daytona Hemi virtually abandoned behind bushes in a guy's yard, a bushel of Bugattis in a barn, the ‘Divorcee Cobra,’ and a GTO owned by a mobster. These are great stories about great cars.”                                  Cars & Parts Magazine,December 2007 “Anyone who grew up with tales of buried treasure, loves a good mystery, or simply a rousing good read, are sure to enjoy both titles.”  Musclecar Enthusiast, January 2008 “It contains more fascinating tales of those elusive and often rare vehicles still waiting to be discovered.”   “For years I thought I was the only person who was looking behind sheds, barns and garages while traveling, but I was mistaken. There are a lot of us out there. I think you will find yourself taking this book with you should you find quiet time during your day. A great gift for that gearhead on your list.” - Still Runnin Magazine Izoom.com, September 2007 “Just like Cobra, Hemi is chocked with such gems for the eager and patient reader to extract and enjoy.”                                                                                                                                           Cruzin Magazine, November/December 2007 “If there’s one thing most car nuts have in common it’s the desire to find an old car that has languished for decades in a barn or garage. The Hemi in the Barn is a collection of forty such stories of cars that have been stored and found.”                    Antique Automobile, November/December 2007 “As entertaining as these tales are, they’re also full of tantalizing hints and suggestions.” From the Inside Flap “Tom Cotter tel
