Review by Pete Vack
Wallace Wyss’s latest book, Incredible Barn Finds; The Highly Entertaining Stories Behind 50 Treasured Cars, comes on the tail of Jerry Heasley’s Rare Finds books, and Tom Cotter’s The Cobra in the Barn. Apparently both books were successful, and it seemed clear to Wyss that he really ought to be doing the same thing, and he did.
So what makes his barn book different…aside from his unique style that when diligently edited often provides delightful reading? Wyss chooses to separate the boys from the men in terms of interesting finds and ups the ante quite well, deciding to concentrate on dream cars or ultra-rare race cars, rather than the wider scope of other books. That made his Barn Find book more incredible, as virtually all of the cars have been through the auction blocks at well over a million dollars. On the other hand, as he freely admits, many never saw the inside of a barn or even a shed, but like the Simeone Cobra Daytona coupe, have one hell of a great story to tell.
