Exotic Barn Finds - Matt Stone


5 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
In Exotic Barn Finds, veteran author and historian Matt Stone tells the story of more than 25 barn finds. The unique twist? Rather than the usual prewar or muscle car era product out of Detroit, these cars are all beloved imported sports cars of a bygone era.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
Matt Stone is a freelance journalist, author, broadcaster, and former Editor of Motor Trend Classic magazine. He has been a professional automotive journalist/photographer since 1990. Stone has a Bachelor's degree from Cal Poly Pomona, with a major in Business, and minors in Journalism and Marketing. He has authored and photographed ten automotive books and is a former member of SPEED/FOX SPORTS television network's Barrett-Jackson auction broadcast team. Matt is also a judge at various Concours d'Elegance, and a member of the LeMay-America's Car Museum Steering Committee. He serves his profession as a past officer and board of directors member, Keynote Address Committee chairman, and past president of the Motor Press Guild trade association.

MY THOUGHTS -
What a great, fun book to look at (and read). There are over 30 cars listed here , each in separate chapters. There are great descriptions - history of the car (previous owners etc.), where and when it was found, what condition it was in, how much it might be worth and lots more.

There are tons of great full color photos! I could look at this 100 times and not get tired of looking at these great old cars. There are pictures of the cars when it was found (even at different angles), interior pics, engine pics, and close-ups.

They did not skimp on making this book. It is really beautifully done! This was kinda like American Pickers, but with all cars.
Now I am no mastermind of old cars! But I enjoyed this book very much. It has tons of information and I am sure I can learns lots from it. A person who is really into cars would love this!
