1st rule of Vette Barn ... Don't show pictures of Vette Barn. :smilielol5:
2nd rule: Everything has a price.
3rd rule: If you don't want something cutoff your vehicle don't leave it overnight.


Experiences: I left my car down there and the mice (and probably a raccoon) made off with my door handles, BSM and emblems. Luckily Gary took pity on me and filled in the spots where the handles were.

I think I have a couple left...I will have to search my Photobucket when I get home from work.

My experiences...only been able to make it out there a couple times, but they were all great...nice cars, great people...who could ask for anything more (Toyota)...and every now and then Gary even has this neat trick where his car is in a gazillion pieces and is no longer black.

I have no pics of the barn...Only spent about an hour there in 2005 before Gary and myself drove up to OC, Maryland for Vette weekend.

Closest pic I have is of our cars on the Chesepeake bay bridge/tunnel shortly after leaving the barn:






While in the barn, Gary buffed off the road gator marks on my ACI spoiler that I inherited on the road trip there, washed/dryed the car, then he began filling my hatch with some parts from the "back room" that he wanted me to have.

I do hope to make it back out there one day. Wouldn't mind at all if the raccoon stole my door handles too. :coolgleamA:

I don't have any pics but I like to stop by and hang out with GB as much as I can, luckily I live right down the road. I didnt think people were serious about stuff happening to your car if you go there enough until my spoiler ended up in his back room.

It's a good place to hang out.

I have only two wishes before I die. The first is to touch Megan Fox's boobs and the second is to visit the Vette Barn. :drool5:

All I have left is the few photos I uploaded to facebook. My photobucket w/ all my project pics was hacked and deleted. I got the notification that my account was set for deletion and I had 48 hours to contact photobucket to cancel the deletion.... well 1,000,000 attempts to contact their customer service didn't work... nobody replies to emails and there is no customer service phone... so they all got lost. They were dehosted when I got the notification so I couldn't start saving them. Luckily I printed them all and have them in an album so I do have documentation of the targa conversion.





Tom I posted in another thread... I got perma-banned from CF... been doing a good bit of work on my house and got back to lifting weights full time. I have a set of Pfadt coilovers, street sways, and some Corsa Extremem mufflers waiting for the dead of winter to install.
