Our good friends at LBI Limited in Philadelphia (purveyors of fine investment grade classic cars) have shared a cool story about a recent Barn Find Porsche 911S.

Turns out that the car is a first year 911S that had been parked with the all too common intention of restoration or renovation. In most cases the cause is simply love of the car and owners unwilling to part ways with their cherished machine thinking they would get back to it at some point.  A lesson here for all of us in the hobby.  The other common denominator is of course having extra room to park the car.  I wish I had had some extra room to park some cars as I was coming up in the hobby.  If I owned property that included any type of extra vehicle storage area, it would likely be full of my past dalliances. I wouldn’t have sold anything!

Anyway here is the link to the thoughtful piece written by Nick Zabrecky, to whom the photography credits also belong.  Enjoy: Dusty Soul: 1967 Porsche 911S Barn Find
