Old Cars Weekly just tracked down the story behind the story, and the real explanation is almost as good as the hoax. What we are actually seeing in those pictures is the collection of an automobile dealer who over the years has added many vehicles that caught his fancy. He just drove them to the barn and parked them there, presumably waiting until he decided what to do with the lot of them next. About a year ago he sent in a photographer to document the collection, and those pics are the ones circulating the internet, helping to create and sustain this myth. So now you know the truth behind the Great Portugal Barn Find, and you all can stop sending us tips to cover it. Okay?

If the guy would have had any car-sense at all he would have choosen quality over quantity and bought say...a '72 Lamborghini Miura SV, a '64 Ferrari 250 GTO, a 427 Cobra, a Ford GT40, Gullwing Benz, etc. and you can add in in your own favourites and/or now high priced classic.

Ok, fair enough on him having some rare cars there. But many look like they are ready for the crusher too. And have you seen what the Muira SV is selling for these days?

There has to be millions of dollars worth of cars in there. Original Super 7, not to mention the countless number of pre-WWII cars
