One of the few MSN articles worth to read.

The Portugal barn story is an urban legend.  Real photos, made up story.  The real owner had photos taken for insurance purposes.  He did not sell the farm and then the new owner "found" the cars.  It is an easily verified story (snopes, anyone?)  Truly sad that the writers at MSN autos are too stupid and/or lazy to check stories before passing them on.

Also, pretty much anything involving Richard Rawlings is 99.99999 % baloney. Hot Rod exposed the truth about the Firebirds.  Not "found in a garage" but stored on purpose.  Not prototypes or pilot cars.  Not built for GM to decide if they wanted to build the Firebird.  Not worth the ridiculous money they claim they're worth.  The owner contacted Fast-N-Loud and the rest is, as they say, made up reality tv drama.  Again, easily verifiable (google "fast-n-loud first two firebirds sham?")

Please, MSN Autos, for the love of all that is right and good, please, please, please hire some real and competent automotive journalists.

Some nice rides there. I wouldn't mind having that '69 Shelby. Sad to see cars like that not driven more. That's what they were built for...to drive!

I have a 1st generation Saleen that was missing for 10 years. I bought it, and have shown it and driven it since. Slowly done restoration on it, as I have continued to drive it.

Drive 'em people...that's why they were built! (I'd like to have the GT 40 as well!)

The Phil Spector story is a good one. It was used for a Monkees episode and was hidden and lost to buyers in a storage building for many years. it is the highest value car in this story. About 15 or 16 million.

A local doctor I know has a 71 'cuda convertible sitting in his garage, apparently one of only 75 of its kind. A little birdie told me Jay Leno tried to buy it umteen years ago but he wouldn't budge. Bought the car brand new.

I remember receiving an email that was going around a few years ago that related to number 9 on the list. Snopes says the story that went with the email (quoted in the info on number 9) is not true. The original owner of the farm and all of the cars is alive and well. He bought and stored all of these cars until his retirement, when he would have more time to repair/restore, drive and sell some of them.

Article would've been a lot more interesting if we were given more of the estimated values.

My neighbor has 2 vehicles that have not moved off her driveway in 15 years, and a nice one in the garage.  She rides a bike everywhere

Found a "68 Triumph TR-250 that was in a flood for $200 back in 1984.
