British sleeping beauties

Sleeping beauties, named after the book about a farm house in France where a lot of extreme rare and expensive cars are falling apart after years of standing in the barn. Stories about cars which are used as chicken barn or flower pot. Cars and bikes which have been in barns for many years under straw and after turning the ignition key starting again even after many years of stand still. Stories which are more often told, but will be told less and less and only a few of them are really true. Is it not the dream of us all to find a forgotten Bugatti in the barn of an old woman who wants to clean up the trash in the barn. So now and then I have found cars in the field for which I wondered why these cars were standing here just waiting for some attention. 

Below you will see some movies of a Bentley barn find. See how much fun a barn find van be.

Would it not be possible to get this sleeping beauties on the road again. Below you will find some photographs out of the field which I have found on the internet, only a few of them were spotted personally in Holland, or during holidays in foreign countries.

If you have pictures like these.
