Bodyshop Leftover ‘Barn Finds’ Sprawl 20 Acres

Tom Cotter, the Barn Find Hunter known for unearthing some of the coolest barn finds with his video crew, heads to St. George, Utah.

Tom learns of a junkyard while visiting the region, where it is rumored that hundreds of automobiles have been sitting without the owner being ready to sell them. He was informed that there was no chance he would be permitted to enter the junkyard by the same folks who had given him the tip about it. Tom went ahead and got there, but it was closed, so he made a note of the phone number. He is given permission to attend Blake’s Auto Salvage after making a few calls.

The camera team uses a drone to fly over the enormous junkyard before obtaining a tour from Jim McEwen, who knows the owner, Red. Cars are present.

In the northwest corner of the lot, Tom is introduced to a Hudson once owned by the great nephew of Joseph Hudson – this car is likely to return to the Hudson family soon. A weathered 1968 Pontiac GTO is another car in the area with a history behind it. The original owner of this car hunted it down, but decided to pass once he saw how time had treated his beloved muscle car.

The owner of the lot, Red, used to be a paint and body guy for many years of his career, which potentially explains why there’s so many of these cars ended up here – with many of them being turned into donor cars for better condition examples of that model.
