Sunny Southern California is a hotbed for classic cars, from road-worthy beauties to the forgotten junkers that Barn Find Hunter Tom Cotter wakes up every morning hoping to uncover. But California is tightening state laws concerning the possession of non-functional vehicles, making it tougher for folks to put off projects. In this episode, Tom scours Craigslist to track down Alex, a car guy whose motherlode of Fords and Mercurys has managed to evade the ire of California’s enforcement. Cougars, Fairlanes, Comets, and Torinos—many with 390 engines and/or factory four-speeds—count among the forgotten gems in Alex’s stash.
