Do what you love and you won't work a day in your life.
There's nothing more gratifying then when one's passion becomes a full-time job and successful business. Welcome to the life of Gaston Rossato. He turned his love of cars into one of the coolest classic car dealerships out there. The Barn Miami, located in the heart of Miami, Florida, isn't only a showroom. It's a place where gearheads and collectors will find everything from classic British roadsters and all-American muscle cars, to Italian exotics and even motorcycles.
Whether your budget is less than $10,000 or well above the six-figure mark, The Barn Miami has what you're looking for. If that car isn't already parked in the Barn, then Gaston will find it for you. And that's what makes The Barn Miami unique; Gaston knows cars and what makes certain models rare and special.
We've gone through and selected seven cars with a range of prices that we'd love to own. Be sure to check out The Barn Miami's website for a complete inventory and see how one young car guy shares his passion and lives the dream. We've always had a thing for old school BMWs, and this 1972 Bavaria E3 fits the bill beautifully. Not only is it an all-original California car painted Riviera Blue with Saddle Tan interior, it comes complete with a tool kit, original documents, and over 10 years of service history. Oh, did we mention that the asking price is only $9,500?
Considered the poor man's Ferrari of its time, this 1992 Toyota MR2 Turbo is in excellent condition with 87,000 miles. It's also completely original with no modifications and has had an accident free life. And for $13,900 in change it's all yours.
We too have gotten used to seeing many classic muscle cars sell for enormous amounts. But that's not the case with this 1969 Oldsmobile 442 Holiday Coupe. It costs just $34,900 and has a fully rebuilt 425 cu. in. V8. It's got many other restomods and it looks absolutely stunning. $35k! How sweet is that!
Chances are you're not going to find an original Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe. Only six were made and are worth millions of dollars today. But Factory 5 Racing's 2011 ridiculously awesome 1965 Daytona Coupe replica is a solid alternative. With just over 4,000 miles on the odometer, its first two owners have a combined $76,000 invested but it's now being offered for $49,900. It's an absolute steal.
Speaking of expensive classic muscle cars, we happen to think this one is worth every bit of its $99,000 price tag. This is a 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback, a restomod that was originally commissioned by NFL football player Ernest Wilford. Open its hood and you'll find a bored and stroked 351 Windsor V8 with 500 hp. It has a host of other custom features and just 2,755 miles on its clock.
Classic-bodied Porsche 911s will forever be a part of major car collections everywhere. And this 1992 911 3.3 Turbo is no exception. It's one of only 289 examples built that year and is completely original with no performance mods or any other cosmetic changes, and has less than 60,000 miles. It even comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche. No wonder it costs $124,900.
During its six years of production, Ferrari churned out a lot of 458 Italias. Point being is that it's not extremely difficult to find one second hand, but we doubt you'll snag one with only 670 miles. That's not a typo. This one-owner 2015 458 Italia has over $40k in factory options and is painted Scuderia Red with a black leather interior with red stitching. The price? $289,900. It is, after all, the last of the naturally aspirated mid-engined V8 Ferraris. Check out The Barn Miami's full inventory at the official website and even more photos and updates on its Facebook page.
