Barn Envy

Well, it looks like barn finds still do happen:

It turns out that the [1964 Alfa Romeo 1600 Spider] was owned by the same lady from new. She parked the car in 1978 with just under 29,000 miles after a surgery that left her upper body seriously weakened. Whether it was started regularly or not is unknown, but absolutely everything worked when we started it up again 26 years later.

I'll shake his hand if I ever meet him, but I'll be mumbling "lucky bastard" under my breath when I do.
