Default Amazing, MUST SEE.....The Barn

Got this in a mail :

[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]
A recently retired New York man wanted to use his retirement funds wisely,
decided to buy a home and a few acres in Portugal .

The modest farmhouse had been vacant for 15 years; the owner and wife
both had died, and there were no heirs.

The estate was being sold to pay back taxes. There had been several lookers,
but the large barn had steel doors, and they had been welded shut. No one
wanted to go to the extra expense to see what was in the barn, and it wasn't
complimentary to the property anyway... so, no one made an offer on the
place.

The New York gentleman bought it as is, paying just over half of the property's
worth; moved in, and set about to access the barn... curiosity was killing him.

So, he and his wife bought a generator and a couple of grinders... and cut
through the welds.

What was in the barn...?

I think this is a repost.
