Story from thechive.com web page (see below)
A man named Manuel Menezes Moraistook these photos, but he was sworn to secrecy about the cars' location and the owner's name. What we do know is the mysterious owner of the cars was a Portuguese car dealer in the 70's and 80's and stashed away some rare and some not-so-rare cars he came across. When the barn was full, he padlocked and soldered the doors shut. To each their own, I guess. I have a fingernail collection dating back to 82 under my bed.
Massive Barn Find in Portugal
I've identified most of the 180 cars found locked away for 15 years, can
anyone identify any others? I will add them to the video if confirmed 100%.
What are those Formula 1 racers?

Abandoned Classic Cars Part 2
Hi, please check out my new youtube account The link is here

classic cars anymore. Sorry :(
BRAND NEW BMW E24 ABANDONED SINCE 1988 IN ONTARIO
In 1988, Citation Motors, a BMW Dealership in Ontario, shut its doors with
little explanation. The simple answer seems to be that the dealership had
its concession license revoked, but nobody seems to be able to track down
why exactly. Endras BMW, another Toronto-based Bimmer peddler, did some
digging, but didn't come up with too much.
Whatever the case, the dealership moved to Toronto, switched its name to
Downtown BMW, and went under in 2002. The owner of both places seems to be
eccentric at best, as he left Citation where it sat, untouched, with a
then-brand new 635csi and E28 5 Series abandoned inside. The business is
reportedly well cared for, and the cars have not succumbed to the elements
the way they would have were they truly left to rot.
The owner of the establishment apparently has little interest in selling
the business or his wares. To make things more interesting, there's
apparently an as-yet unopened underground storage facility and a back lot
packed with junked Bimmers.
Abandoned cars in forgotten junkyard
These pictures were taken in May of 2010 in the Michigan woods. The
junkyard is permanently closed and has posted no trespassing signs all over
the place. I spoke to the person who owns the property and was given
special permission to explore. This site covers 120 acres and is packed
with cars from the 1930's on up. I only had an hour to look and it must be
done on foot. Enjoy the pics, places like this just don't exist anymore.
Truely a rare find. Thanks to my buddy Chris for the tip on this hot spot.
Starting the 1909 Blitzen-Benz, UNEDITED, @ Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
The Blitzen-Benz was purpose built to do just one thing, to break speed
records (not racing), and it did repeatedly from 1909 through 1911.
(Edited version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga2HtUHzUuw )
Its speed of 228.1km/h (141.73mph) on April 23rd, 1911, driven by Bob
Burman at Daytona Beach, stood as a record until 1919. Twice the speed of
the fastest airplane, (12 April, 1911, Alfred Leblanc @
69.442mph/111.801kph in a Blériot Blériot) and even shattering the record
speed of 210km/h set by a locomotive in 1903.
This record was not even officially broken in an airplane until 1920!
Of the six originally built, this is one of only two that exist today, and
is displayed at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
While the extended and nuanced effort required to start the Blitzen-Benz on
a cool coastal morning can try the patience of some viewers, its historical
significance and ground-breaking engineering brilliance still place it
amongst the greatest motor-vehicle achievements of all time, and the dozens
witnessing this effort felt it was one of the highlights of many great
moments at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance 2011.
Here's a great collection of vintage and modern images of the Blitzen-Benz
and other historic speed record contenders:
displacement 21500 cc / 1312.0 in³
bore 185 mm / 7.28 in
stroke 200 mm / 7.87 in
power 149.1 kw / 200 bhp @ 1600 rpm
specific output 9.3 bhp per litre
bhp/weight 137.93 bhp per tonne
Original Barn find 1968 GT500 Shelby
This car is completely original down to the tires! This one of a kind find
has never been washed since resurfacing from an undisclosed location in
Georgia. This Shelby is a true barn find and yes, it does start and is
driven on and off it's enclosed trailer to various car shows. The seats
have been changed back to the original ones that came in the car along with
all the SHELBY letters that are missing. The car is a rare automatic.
