Portugal: the "must see" place to find classics



This are photos taken last week , in Central Portugal, regarding some propriety that is completely CLOGGED with every classic car and bike needing a new home.




Remember some while ago that "barn find" in Portugal with hundreds of cars?( That wasn,t a "find " at all as it was simply the owner that opened his barn some years after...)

Forget about that. You cant touch any of that. On the contrary,most of these cars are for sale.




Imagine a place, where you can find Isettas in SHELVES, over a Mustang and a Facel Vega. And to get there, you have to TRIP over british bikes and Lambrettas left to rot in the walkway. I didn,t thought it was still possible to fins such place, in a country where minis and Renault 4s are outrageously overpriced. Let alone this.





Visiting this unbelievable place, is a permanent invitation to swear, and to disbelief. It belongs to an enthusiast that often visits England. There are no "normal" cars here. Only the valuable and the awkward. The ones that keep our dreams going.



Take a look at this. I wont bother you with no more talk...
