Browsing the internet for used car deals is something many enthusiasts do every day. I'm certainly guilty of it. It's the reason I own three cars right now—if I find a good deal, I feel obligated to jump on it before it's lost forever. It seems John, the subject of this week's Barn Find Hunter episode from , has the same problem.
Tom Cotter visited John to check out his collection of hot rods, pre-war customs, and restored pickups in North Pole, Alaska. John admits he browses sites like often to see what people have on offer, and buys cars sight unseen, having them delivered to his home. I don't blame him—these days, it's as easy as pressing a few buttons and making a few calls to get a car shipped halfway across the world right to driveway.
I can definitely relate. Though I wouldn't recommend anyone buy a car without checking it out in person first, there have been many times I've nearly made a deposit on a car for sale on the other side of the country, fully prepared to fly out and drive it back home. The internet is a dangerous place for the car-obsessed.
