About Barn Find Fever

The folks behind Barn Find Fever are interested in history and story-telling. We’re a group of vintage auto enthusiasts who understand the memories that old cars and trucks can evoke.  Our goal is to develop the stories into a popular reality television series on a leading cable network. If you know of such a vehicle shuttered away, we should talk. In the meantime, we’d like to introduce our team.

MarkCreator and Executive Producer
Mark is the creator and executive producer of Barn Find Fever. He has discovered dozens of barn finds and they all make for interesting stories. Mark’s first car was a 1958 Triumph TR3, followed by a 1964 Triumph Spitfire. After discharge from the Army in 1972, he bought his first Corvette, a 1963 convertible for $1,400. He later bought a ’66 Corvette coupe in 1977. Mark and wife Mary still own and drive this classic regularly.

If Mark were a color, he would be Nassau blue, the same color as his 1966 Stingray.

Brice has had a long association with classic cars of many makes and models. For him, it started during the late 1970’s with a 1967 VW Karmen Ghia. After discharge from the Army in 1985, Brice bought a 1966 Ford mustang convertible that needed work. He restored that car to perfection. Brice eventually left the world of Ford and purchased a ’65 Corvette more than a decade ago, and often drives on Saturday mornings for Dunkin’ Donuts coffee.

If Brice were a beer he would be a “complex” and flavorful micro brew.

LindsChief Location Scout
Linds is a public school teacher in Madison, Wisconsin who shares a love for old cars and trucks with her father Mark. Linds has attended the Bloomington Gold Corvette meet many times, and has driven the family’s ’66 coupe in numerous road tours, despite the car’s lack of power steering. She’s one strong lady. She always enjoys the hunt for barn finds and is never afraid to enter a new location to ask for leads.

If Linds were in the military, she’d be a general.

DanoCreative Director
Dano is a Milwaukee-based business owner and entrepreneur who loves history and the interplay between that and vintage cars and trucks. She also cherishes the stories of how these collectible classics came to be shuttered. Dano, who enjoys the hunt for barn finds, is responsible for the Barn Find Fever logo and website. She helped her family with a laborious and messy job — stripping paint from their ’66 Corvette prior to its restoration in 2013.

If Dano were a musician, she would play classic country music.

Gary is a retired public school teacher in Northern Illinois. Gary’s first classic was a 1962 red Chevy Impala that he owned while in junior college. A few years later, Gary bought a 1965 Corvette, one of 771 made with the Rochester fuel injection. Gary has missed only 2 Bloomington Gold shows since the event started in the early 1970s. While not polishing the Corvette, Gary enjoys volunteering and giving back to the community.

If Gary were a bicycle, he would be a 3-speed Schwinn with a banana seat.

MarkField Producer
Mark is a retired critical care flight nurse who appreciates vintage cars and trucks, and blue grass music. One of his favorite sounds is the rumble of a small-block Chevy with a ¾ race cam. He has attended many Midwest-based car shows and swap meets, a favorite being the Beloit Autorama each September sponsored by the Beloit Evening Lions Club. One of Mark’s first cars, which he wishes he had back, was a 1965 VW Karmen Ghia.

If Mark were a musical instrument, he would be a hand-crafted banjo.

Bob films, directs and edits the wonderful stories we’re uncovering during our travels across the heartland. More importantly, Bob is a long-time car nut who recently restored a 1960’s muscle car, a 1966 Oldsmobile 442 convertible. The 442 was a 10-year labor of love, filled with (not surprisingly) a myriad of set-backs. However, once driven it was clear why he persisted to see the project completed.

“If an alien, Bob were, be Yoda he would. Hmmmmmmm.”
