A Woman Looked Inside Her Grandma’s Old Garage – And Discovered An Incredible Surprise


Compulsive hoarding isn’t just something people used to describe those whose collecting habits have gone a little out of control ; indeed it’s actually a real disorder in its own right .If you’re unfamiliar with the term it involves amassing so much stuff that you basically can’t move in your own home anymore.

Well the items collected by hoarders are often worthless, it’s not impossible to make some absolutely incredible finds among the junk and it doesn’t have to be while they’re collecting this stuff , it can be years later what everything’s been left untouched and forgotten and that’s exactly what happened to one Reddit user going by the name of Irie Jin.

 

The female student who’s based in the u.s. shared the astonishing contents of her grandmother’s garage with the car porn subreddit in August of 2018 .The reason she chose that particular subreddit well just check out the title of her post :

“Despite the dust and rust Gramma’s 1981 Lamborghini Countach”

Unsurprisingly the post was a huge hit with her fellow redditors gaining thousands of upvotes and hundreds of comments clicking through the links. She revealed why there indeed was a classic white Lamborghini Countach photographed in her grandmother’s garage and no doubt the picture of oak some sweet nostalgia for anyone who grew up in the 80s.

The car may have looked a little worse for wear unsurprising giving how long had been in there.

Yes, the gorgeous yet dusty Countach had actually been sitting inside the garage for more than a decade when Irie Jin took the pictures. However, the Lamborghini wasn’t the only classic supercar sitting inside the garage .

Indeed just creeping into e region’s original image was the sight of a red car and after a few redditors enquired she posted a few more pictures which revealed the vehicle to be a Ferrari 308.

Clearly this was a garage full of some seriously cool vehicles.According to GT Spirit, the Countach is a 500 s model which had a limited production run of just 321 cars.It also packed a 4.8 liter v12 engine and at its peak could fetch somewhere in the region of 400 to 500 thousand dollars .

However even in their current condition the Daily Mirror estimated that both the Lamborghini and Ferrari could still be worth around that amount together still you don’t need to be a petrol head to recognize just how awesome these vehicles are and if you’re a movie buff you may recognize them already. After all, Leonardo DiCaprio drives something much the same as the Countach in the Wolf of Wall Street.

Well the Ferrari 308 is quite like Tom Selleck’s iconic ride in Magnum P.I but exactly how the cars had wound up there and why they’d been left on touch for so long remain mysterious.

At least that was until the girl revealed all : “my late grandpa bought it the Lamborghini for his exotic car rental business in 1989 but after insurance costs became too high for him to operate the company he kept the car and many others including the Ferrari 308 outside in leaky garages for 20 years instead of selling them” she wrote.
