August 8

Yesterday I was driving in an area rarely am in. As I came near this barn, I was struck by it's color. It was brown, which is not common around here. The building itself is pretty standard, but it sets on a hill, and is surrounded by a split rail fence, giving it such a nice look.
I noticed the doors were open, and when I got closer, I was in love with what I saw inside:


Isn't that a beautiful car? The barn showcases it perfectly!

oh, that is cool! :)

Beth said...

Wow that is a beauty of a car and the barn does showcase it well!
Add a few windows and some house-like doors and this could be a lovely rustic home---it's very appealing. The brown is a nice touch.

What a treat that must have been! Great fence, too.

bon bon said...

great find! makes you wonder how many more treasures are hidden inside.

Demara said...

LOL you're too funny Mari !! :)) I like the fence.

Elaine said...

It's a wonderful barn. I would have asked my husband to pull over so I could get a shot. However, when he saw that car he would have pulled over so he could get out and take a longer look. The barn is indeed a wonderful showcase for that lovely vehicle!

A real treasure chest!

Mari, this barn is pretty unique specially here in MI. Usually we often see red barns and not brown, and my jaw drop when I see that gorgeous car, my oh my!!!

Barn Charm

Tanya said...

well what a surprise! it's a very clean barn/landscaping! most barns here are brown.

EG Wow said...

Well isn't that fun to peek through those barn doors and find that lovely classic vehicle!

Tricia said...

Ohhh my goodness, I'm thinking you're probably quite lucky that the owner didn't see you taking these pics... He might have thought you was 'casing the joint' to steal it! =0

They ARE beauties, both the barn & the car...

I have to give you an extra big THANKS for risking these shots & joining in on Barn Charm... beee careful out there! LoL! =)

Evelyn S. said...

Wow! I'm surprised that car isn't under lock and key....or maybe it is most of the time. ;-) I love those barns with the great wooden floors....I haven't been in one for a very long time.

Oh a great oldtimer!

Great pictures!

Rose said...

I think I want both the barn and its contents!

Genie said...

Oh, my goodness....you really hit the big jackpot with this shot. I cannot believe what you found inside. That is one gorgeous car...and the barn is lovely and well kept. Guess the owners have the big bucks. Thanks for following Buddy’s hike. He is in a bed and breakfast tonight so I, too, will sleep better. I looked at his photo again to see what looked to be like a transformer...all the gray pieces are the shoulder pieces and the ones that go around the chest and waist. His poles are on the ground beside it. Hope that helps a bit. Genie

Genie said...

Mari....Please don’t think I have lost my mind. Rose was the one who asked me about the pack, but somehow I stuck my thoughts on your blog instead of hers. Sorry about that boo-boo. Thank goodness I caught it. Genie

Cool ... the little door on the left side of the building interests me. Looks like a doggie door. Neato, Mari.

Shelly said...

That is cool! How do you find so many neat things to take pictures of? Is someone else driving you around?

Don said...

A great "find" to get a brown barn. It looks to be in good shape and it houses a fine looking MG from the 50's I would say. Nice post.

Ms. Becky said...

oh what a find - that barn AND the car! I bet you let out a whoop when you saw that! thanks for visiting my blog, I truly appreciate it. and I hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Hi Mari, It's nice to be back visiting you and catching up on the beautiful part of the country you live in.

The owner of this barn and automobile is very lucky! What a gorgeous place to store that gem of a car. And a few posts back with the hay-- That looks like my family's part of the world :-)

Have a fun day. xo jj

Hi Mari -

Thank you

I love that shot of the car in the barn. Yes, love it!

Michelle Renee said...

Very cool surprise inside!

Carole said...

That was the color of our barn when we moved in (and still is where we have left to reside), but the previous owner was either really into brown (the house was also brown - inside and out) or there was a huge sale on brown paint. lol

Nice barn.
