very interesting

thought you guys might enjoy this,supposed to be a true story....................a guy from new york retires,and wants to invest in a property in portugal,finds a farm house that has been vacant for 15 yrs,with a big barn on the land with the doors welded shut, the old couple that lived there died many yrs ago and there were no heirs, the farm house had to be sold to pay taxes. alot of people looked at the house but were put off by the dirty great barn. so the guy from new york put an offer in well under the asking price and got it. when they owned it,they got a generator and some grinders and opened the barn................................now this could be a true story or not but you cant say what is in the barn hasnt been there for a long time and is not made up ..............enjoy www.intuh.net/barnfinds/afa70.htm

I trawled through all the photos and there's not one Austin Allegro or Ford Anglia!
