4000 imported Japanese cars and 300+ VW Westfalias discovered in Virginia | Barn Find Hunter - Ep. 115

Yes, Virginia, there is a Mitsuoka. And lots of Figaros, S-Cargos, and other Japanese Domestic Market vehicles that you may have never seen before. Down the road a piece, there are Volkswagen Vanagons as far as the eye can see. Just another day in the life of Barn Find Hunter Tom Cotter.

I have seen something about the guy with the Figaros somewhere before. Good place to know about if you have been frustrated looking for a JDM of some sort  --seems like they might be able to get it for you.

The Figaro has a gas engine with a turbo, not a turbo diesel.

Note that Gary Duncan was referred to in this recent Hagerty article on bidding oddities at Bring a Trailer.com https://insider.hagerty.com/trends/on-shills-and-chandeliers/

Maybe not enough there to formally accuse him of anything, but the issues discussed certainly raise ethics questions.

I am sure this was filmed prior to that Bring a Trailer deal, but the "oddities" do shine a bad light on Duncan for sure although I don't think they are technically illegal... just not admirable.
