NORTH BRANCH, Minn.— For the past 20 years, renowned automotive journalist Jerry Heasley has been documenting the rediscovery of rare muscle cars in barns, garages, fields, and the most unexpected places. These stories have appeared in Muscle Car Review, Mustang Monthly, Mopar Muscle, and Vette and won over a large audience. Some of these cars have simply become fixtures in garages while others have been forgotten, neglected, and/or abandoned. Some owners have passed away and left their beloved muscle cars behind, some have been claimed by unappreciative spouses, exported to a foreign country, and even hidden in plain sight. With that, their collectibility, value, and historical significance have gone unrecognized. These cars have been waiting for a knowledgeable enthusiast to appreciate their stature and return them to their former glory. These unusual circumstances and the extremes dedicated enthusiasts have gone to acquire these cars have created a fascinating collection of stories.
Many stories chronicle the adventures of collector car buyers doing intense research, checking many sites, and making umpteen phone calls to discover an extremely valuable yet forgotten muscle while others simply fall into lucky car collector’s hands. Whether it has been fate, circumstance, hard work, or pure luck, Heasley brings each collector car quest to life in vivid and compelling detail. The collection of fascinating stories contains iconic cars, such as the 1970 Shelby GT350, 1968 Dodge Hemi Dart drag race car, 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302, 1969 Ford Torino Talledega, 1969 Chevy COPO Camaro, 1969 Dodge Daytona Charger, and many, many others.
