It's a story as old as the Internet itself, but is this amazing discovery an elaborate hoax or a genuine gold mine, tell us what you think?
A retirement home has turned into a gold mine for one very lucky man.
He bought a farmhouse, which had lay vacant for many years, for himself and his wife. The only slight stumbling block was the fact it came with a barn which was welded shut.
But he took a chance and bought the Portuguese property at a knockdown price and soon picked up some grinders to open the barn door.
And, boy, was he glad he did as he made an incredible discovery.
Inside were scores of vintage cars, including Aston Martins, Mercedes and various Lotus models. They are dusty but many remain road-worthy.
The total value of the lot runs to several million pounds.
That's what you call a retirement fund!
