There is a niche on YouTube of videos of people exploring abandoned buildings. However, it’s rare for someone to come across an empty barn full of forgotten cars. In this clip, Ethan Minnie discovers a collection of decrepit Ford Mustangs, in addition to a few other interesting vehicles.
According to the title of the video, this collection belonged to someone who won the lottery in the 1980s and then went bankrupt. Judging by the vehicles, this person had a preference for Fords and Mercurys, but was also not against owning a few GM products.
As soon as Minnie enters the barn, he immediately discovers several cars. The first he sees is a seventh-generation Mercury Cougar from the early 1990s. Unfortunately, people have already damaged quite a few vehicles by smashing windows and spray-painting them.
A 1980 Chevrolet Camaro is next to the Cougar. The owner’s manual is even still in the glove box.
In front of the Camaro is a 1960s Ford Mustang convertible. It’s in the worst condition of any vehicle in the building. Without a roof in place, water and debris may have fallen into the exposed interior.
A first-generation Ford Falcon from the early 1960s sits in the back corner. All glass is intact and there are no signs of rust. It looks like the car might clean up just fine.
The next piece is a Fox body Mustang fan’s dream, or maybe a nightmare because of the condition of the cars. They are all from before the 1987 model year refresh, where the front got smoother.
A pair of ’60s Mustangs are in one corner. They are both in poor condition and have many missing parts.
A late ’80s Chevy Caprice station wagon takes center stage.
There is still one room left to visit. An early ’80s Cadillac Seville is leaning against a wall, and other than a broken window, it appears to be in good condition. A mid-60s Ford Galaxie convertible is in rougher condition. A Fox Mercury Capri body and a Mustang from the 60s complete the collection.
Just because a building is abandoned doesn’t mean it doesn’t belong to anyone. The video offers no clues as to who cares about these forgotten cars.
