Classic Car Enthusiast Finds Treasure Trove in North Carolina.

Tom Cotter, the host of Hagerty’s Barn Find Hunter, is known for uncovering hidden automotive gems in unexpected places. His latest adventure takes him to North Carolina, where he meets James Harkey, the owner of a sprawling 72-acre former turkey farm, now a sanctuary for classic cars. This remarkable property, complete with six barns and 90,000 square feet of storage space, houses an incredible array of vehicles that would thrill any car enthusiast.

James, an engineer and farmer, has spent the past 20 years amassing a diverse collection of classic muscle cars, rare imports, and SUVs. His collection includes standout pieces like Pontiac GTOs, a unique Porsche 911 Turbo 'flachbau', and a Chevrolet Caprice, among others. Despite his primary interest in old GM muscle cars, James’s collection is impressively varied, featuring everything from pre-war vehicles to classic pickups. The vast assortment reflects his lifelong passion for cars and his meticulous effort to preserve these automotive treasures.

Sadly, with the passing of his wife last year, James has decided to sell off most of his collection. This offers a rare opportunity for car lovers to rescue and restore these classics, giving them a new lease on life. The eclectic mix of vehicles in James’s barns ensures that there’s something for every taste, making this a dream find for collectors and enthusiasts alike. Tom’s visit to this extraordinary collection is a testament to the hidden gems that can still be found in the most unexpected places, and it highlights the enduring appeal of classic cars in American culture.
