One of my lottery dreams is to be able to hunt down classic cars. If you've listened to our show before you know my dream car is a 1967 Pontiac GTO. My dad had one when he was young and I've always loved its muscle car looks. In the search for classic cars to restore and rebuild you have to look in hard-to-find places. Many of these old vehicles are buried in old garages, covered up by tarps. During a car hunting trip in the Midwest, you won't believe the cars and trucks that YouTubers Magnacars discover, including a couple of GTOs.

According to Hotcars.com, this undisclosed classic car graveyard is located somewhere in Missouri. There are a number of different buildings and barns that the vehicles are stored in, and many are just sitting out in the open, still being damaged by the elements. But make no mistake. In the right hands, most of these vehicles can be restored to top condition, and many have already had a lot of work done.

As Hotcars points out, the owner of the property was clearly a big fan of Jeeps and military trucks. There are a ton of them just sitting around the property in various stages of repair. There are also a ton of pickup trucks around too, including this 1970s Ford in a beautiful blue.

Inside the buildings are more cars from the 50s and 60s, including six Ford Thunderbirds just waiting to be worked on. Hotcars also reports that there is a hard-to-find 1957 Cadillac Fleetwood hiding under some tarps too. But clearly, one of the standouts is the mint condition 1968 Chevy Camaro Z28. You could wash that thing up and put it in a car show today!

Hotcars reports that the owner of the property and the vehicles is willing to sell and clearly many of these cars and trucks would go for thousands. As I said, it would take the lottery for me to buy some of these classics and restore them. But a guy can dream, can't he?
