Default Barnfind in Portugal

Ive been hearing about this for a while, finally got some pics.

Imagine you're going to live in Portugal.

> has been empty for 15 years...
> While exploring your new property you find a large barn.
> The door is padlocked and welded shut and it's all rusted solid.
> So you grind the padlock and the welds off and.........

The very thought of opening the rusted and welded doors gives me goose bumps mate. I already know whats inside now .

Nice find mate, some true exotics in there.

Who's barn is it? Was it?

How come the barn door was welded shut, with such treasure inside?

PS- Not revealing the treasure. Let other see the pics and be !

A friend of mine found a 1942 Bentley with 110 miles on his own tea estate in Kerela that everyone forgot about for 50 years...
