What have we here..
It seems it was called the King Tut of barn finds.
An auction house in France announced it would be presenting 60 rare vintage, exotic cars, found tucked away in western France.
I know how I felt watching this clip, did it tug at any of your emotions, did you have a sense of something m perhaps shades of sadness, Was it just the music,or the visual.
These amazing pieces of steel and craftmanship were once new, the were the accumulation of hours of work. The creators, the builders,designers,trades that had to pull together to build these machines of pleasure,
The cars, were admired, driven, used for commuting, and any and all other modes of transportation – finally they came to rest here in their final resting place.
Restored and found 50 years later.. If you are wanting more information, it is the automobile collection of Roger Baillon (he was a French transport business owner collection classic cars, to start a museum, but in the 70’s he business went down, and he had to sell 50 cars to pay the bills)
The cars or a real find, Many of a history, and the fact that this collection was lost and left to be embraced by nature, for car affectionados, it is causing a real stir. Imagine seeing Talbots, Delahayes and a 1956 Maserati A6G Gran Sport in one location.
For me.. although not a hoarder, I like having my tools, and pieces that give me pleasure or a sense of being able at anytime to delve into a favourite pastime, or activity.
Seeing this clip stirred me into doing a tidy up. Big clean up. I realized that I had far too much in the way of material things/objects… in clearing away the clutter.. and things that have long lost their moment with me… I am making way for new beginnings and freeing space for improving the quality of what is happening in my life now.
note.. the Ferrari 250 sold for 14.2 million on Feb. 6,2015 at auction.
to see all the cars.. visit
Life is to be lived in the present….. not the past…
but in appreciating what was, we can make better choices in the present
I love and appreciate each and everyone of you.
