Probably an interesting story here...

I was looking up something on google and came across this "barn find" image (in France? or Quebec?). Assuming this photo wasn't staged, there certainly must be an interesting story behind it...

The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.

Can you imagine all the cars restored along with the hauler and displayed as in the picture? Talk about a "best of show" winner!

Being up on the hauler may have kept the cars in a save able condition unlike if they were sitting on the ground rotting into the dirt.

Makes one wonder if the whole transport truck was stolen in what, 1956 or there abouts, and abandoned in a remote area for later scrapping, then forgotten about. In any event, I would love to hear the story. Mike
