    The cars are sold - see the posts directly above yours from earlier this year - or are you interested in the horses ?

    This is very good news! Who is the lucky owner?
    They should create a thread here with the progress of the restoration of the cars.

    Great story this is. I wonder what they will do with the other one's colour scheme. It looked very ugly!

    Here's the deal. Buy them both. Restore one. Race it some. Now, try to sell it for big bucks. Then, maybe, restore the second one. If the first one doesn't sell, keep the second one under wraps to hopefully, eventually, drive up the price of the first one. We'll see.

    Interesting - I followed this thread frequently when I lived in Belgium, but then it went off my radar for a while. I am, however, VERY happy to see that one car is up and running so quickly!! I hope to see both of them get proper treatment and seen in public again.

    Great to see them back to their former glory!

    The article says that the barn where they were found was recently hit by lightning and completely burned to the ground! Talk about saved by the Bel(l)gians ;)

    Good story, read it from the start.

    Same question than above; Did these cars sell and what was the price? There has definitely been some ups and downs in the values since 2005 when this thread was started.
