I’m always amazed at the number of cars squirreled away that you can stumble over right in your own backyard. A few weeks ago, I purchased a transaxle lift on Craig’s List and the seller turned out to have a huge assortment of Fords and Mercurys hidden in his barns. This was 10 or so miles from my home. I’ve passed his farm hundreds of times and never knew there were old cars there. Today I went to shoot photos of one car at a body shop, also near Iola. It turned out the car owner had over 20 collector cars. There’s probably cars right in Iola that I don’t know about. In fact, I know there is.
