Hagerty launches 'The Barn Find Hunter' series


TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. _ “The Barn Find Hunter” is a 10-episode Web series airing on Hagerty’s YouTube Channel featuring The Cobra in the Barn author Tom Cotter. The series will follow Cotter as he travels the country in his 1939 Ford Woodie, tracking down forgotten classic cars in barns and backyards. In locations ranging from Savannah, Ga., to Napa, Calif., he finds everything from a shady, fenced yard full of vintage muscle to a British classic that traveled all the way from Australia.

Cotter has written 11 automotive books, including the award-winning In the Barn series, and has contributed to the New York Times, Road & Track, and Hagerty magazine. He spent 25 years in automotive and auto racing public relations, working with some of the best-known sponsors in NASACAR, Indycar, NHRA and sports car racing.

“In this series, I aim to show viewers that there are still plenty of desirable cars that are hiding around the country, just waiting to be found,” said Cotter. He has an eclectic car collection that includes several barn finds, including everything from the 1939 Ford Woodie he drives cross-country to an early Mini Cooper to a Cobra.
