American classics in the barn

Photos taken in one of the barns in Bahrain have been published on the Web. The author of the photographs discovered a whole collection of classic American cars in his grandfather’s barn. The machines are covered with rust and a thick layer of sand due to long periods of inactivity.

An unusual find was discovered by a resident of Bahrain named Jay. It turned out that his grandfather was a big fan of classic American cars, ordering a variety of cars straight from the United States until the 90s of the last century.

The collection includes models such as the Chevrolet Impala, Plymouth Volare and the 1970 Pontiac GTO, equipped with air conditioning, power steering and an eight-cylinder engine. In addition, on the grounds of the barn, Jay discovered a freestanding engine that looks like the legendary Hemi V8 from Chrysler.

Over the years of inactivity, the climatic conditions of Bahrain have caused serious damage to classic cars. All specimens are covered with a thick layer of sand, and some have begun to rust.

Despite the state of the specimens, Jay is very happy with what he found in the barn. There are practically no American classic cars left in the Middle East, he said. Therefore, even in this form, the vehicles found represent a unique find.
