Contractor tearing down house finds, keeps 10 antique cars

This post was originally published on this site

A North Carolina contractor hired to tear down an old house has been given the okay to keep the 10 antique cars he discovered hidden around the property.

David Mount was demolishing the structure on a property he was tasked with cleaning up when his 13-year-old daughter came across a neglected 1932 Plymouth roadster in the basement, reports The Old Motor.

Gradually, nine other cars were unearthed, most of them covered in kudzu, a climbing vine, and in pretty bad shape. While some could be identified at a glance, others were significantly customized, and their origins still remain a mystery.

The property owner apparently doesn’t care about the cars, and let Mount keep them on the condition that his daughter keeps and restores the Plymouth and eventually gives him a ride in it. Mount hopes to save as many of the cars as possible, and has managed to extract most of the 10 so far.
