The Cobra in the Barn: Great Stories of Automotive Archaeology
It’s the fantasy of every car enthusiast: Pull a tarp off a pile in a barn, or hear a farmer say ""there’s an old car out back"" and discover a classic collectible such as a Hemi ‘Cuda, a rare Porsche, or a Jaguar E-Type racer. Many such tales told during enthusiasts’ bench racing sessions are urban myths. But this book is full of true tales of rare gems pulled out of haystacks or junkyards—and there are before and after photos to prove it! Author Tom Cotter uses his engaging writing style in telling the tales of found Cobras, a rare Delehaye found disassembled in Czechoslovakia that eventually won Best in Show at Pebble Beach, a Ferrari racer found in a California woodchip pile, and several more. Cotter traces the early histories of the cars, how they were discovered, and where they are today.
