MCACN 2022: Barn Finds & Hidden Gems

It’s been 10 days since the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN). Folks are still talking about it all over the Internet because it’s an overwhelming display of muscle car history in one safe space where the drama of reality are not able to penetrate. Valhalla? Nirvana? Whatever you want to call it, it’s an awesome show.

Perhaps the most popular display is Barn Finds & Hidden Gems. Curated by Ryan Brutt, the one and only “Auto Archeologist” who travels throughout the Midwest to find the coolest vehicles hoarding has to offer, this display brings to you the same kinds of cars he discovers in his travels. What was it like? Take a gander at these pics!

This 1965 Ford Galaxie 500 looks like it needs little compared to others in the display. In the hands of a relative of the original owner, it recently was pulled out of storage in Washington state and cleaned.

To contrast, this Iowa-based 1968 Chevelle SS 396 is more typical of the kinds of cars you’ll find in the Barn Finds display. No word on what kind of horsepower it was packing.
