Amazing Barn Finds by Ryan Brutt

The trouble with archaeologists is that they seem to be preoccupied with bits of pottery and old statues, most likely because these are things that have survived the ravages of centuries, even millennia, and not completely rotted away. But for most of us pottery and old sculptures might be nice but they just aren’t at the top of our list of things to get really interested in. So for those of us who are interested in cars, cars haven’t been around for thousands of years, and cars tend to be subject to rust and rotting at a much faster rate than a china tea pot for example; but they also happen to be a lot more exciting than a china tea pot – even a really nice one.

Ryan Brutt is called “The Automotive Archaeologist”, his passion is to travel and find “Barn Finds” and his new book “Amazing Barn Finds and Roadside Relics: Musty Mustangs, Hidden Hudsons, Forgotten Fords, and Other Lost Automotive Gems” is a delightful documentary of a journey in search of archaeological treasures in North America.
