"The Baroness and the Mercedes is just one of 50 entertaining true stories from the collector car world. Just imagine, a car abandoned for over 30 years by a Prussian heiress is located in Connecticut and was eventually sold for over $11 million dollars! This book, written by former Motor Trend associate editor Wallace Wyss, has example after example of rare, purebred cars that were found covered in dirt, ignored, effectively ‘‘lost’’ until an enthusiast recognized their worth and rescued them. More examples: The Bizzarrini Manta prototype found abandoned in customs in Italy; The Maserati Boomerang prototype spotted on a street in Spain; The bubble topped Rolls Royce Wraith rescued from the basement of a nightclub on the Cote d’Azur; The Ferrari 250GTO donated to a high school in Texas, which eventually sold for $52 million! Author Wyss, who has been an ace barn-finder himself, tracking down rare Rolls Royces, Bentleys, Bizzarrinis, Ferraris, Porsches and gullwing Mercedes, mixes in his own adventures with the stories of full-time barn finders.
