My Barn Find was really a Hangar Find. I found the car, a 1959 Austin Healey 100-6, in a hangar at a local airport. I really wasn't looking for a car, but it seemed to 'need' me. Also - I had never restored a car, so this would be a first. Four years later I had it on the road. The seller hoped I would keep it pretty original versus putting a V-8 in it. I did keep the car pretty much original, but a little aircraft hardware and stainless versus asbestos heat shields 'personalized' the car for me. The license plate is HNGR QN for 'Hangar Queen.' In aviation terms - a Hangar Queen is an aircraft that either never leaves the hangar to fly - or is always in the hangar getting fixed. The Healey is no Hangar Queen anymore.
