BEHIND THE STORY
Manuel Menezes Morais shot the photos, but he was sworn to secrecy about the cars__ location and the owner__s name. However, he was able to obtain permission from the elusive owner to give me the following information:
The owner of the cars was a car dealer in the 1970s and 1980s, and decided to save the more interesting cars that came through his doors. When the barn was full, he padlocked and __soldered_ the doors shut. (Perhaps welding was too permanent.)
Web sites varied on the number of cars: 58, 100, and 180 were speculated. According to Morais, there are 180 cars in the barn.
And, aw shucks, none of the cars is for sale.
Clara was able to determine that the cars are located somewhere in the area of Sintra, near Lisbon. I asked Morais if he could ask the owner if he had a favorite car. __He has lots of good cars in very good condition,_ he says, __but he loves the Lancia Aurelia B24. He has two._
I would ask that a European-based SCM subscriber pick this story up and help fill in the blanks. And let me know what you find ([email protected]). I__d like to include the true story in a future In the Barn book, as well as in SCM.
