101 barn-find tales sure to entice any car collector. In recent years, the quest to find and restore forgotten automotive gems has generated a cult-like following - a very large cult-like following. So large, in fact, that the subject of automotive archaeology has inspired an entire genre of television programs, including Counting Cars, Desert Car Kings, Chasing Classic Cars, One of a Kind, What's My Car Worth?, and numerous others. Author Tom Cotter is at the forefront of this movement with his In the Barn series, a line of books that inspired many of the above-mentioned television programs. 50 Shades of Rust collects 90-plus of the all-time best barn-find stories. Each story is accompanied by photographs from the scenes of the finds, creating a heavily illustrated book unlike any barn-find book yet published.
TOM COTTER (Davidson, NC) writes regularly for Road & Track and other magazines and has a deep-seated love for motorcycle and automotive rescue. He has written four books on the lure of collector-vehicle archaeology: the award-winning The Cobra in the Barn, The Hemi in the Barn, The Corvette in the Barn, and The Vincent in the Barn. Cotter most recently authored a biography of drag racing legend Tommy Ivo. http://www.cobrainthebarn.com
