PA Amish with a 302 in the barn....hmmmm.....must have been one heck of a fast buggie  ;)
I know this didn't come out of John Books (Harrison Ford) VW from the movie Witness.

as an aside here, an Amish Barn Find is not necessarily an oxymoron. Until an Amish person joins the church there is no prohibition against cars or motorcycles. Its up to the individual families if they wish to allow a family member to keep one on the property. While not that common these things exist and it would not be unusual to find one that has sat for decades completely untouched over that time. Also uncommon to find one protected over that time. You wont find one on a conservative Mennonite property.
