60 Hidden Cars Worth a Hefty Fortune

It's not very often that you stumble across a collection of vintage cars worth millions of dollars, especially on a family-owned farm! Some 60 vintage cars, some of which are extremely rare, were found lying around and left to rust on a farm in western France. The rare collection once belonged to French transport entrepreneur, Roger Baillon.
 
Baillon's grandchildren were the lucky heirs. Among the prized vehicles was a Talbot-Lago that once belonging to King Farouk of Egypt. Imagine finding something like this on your property...
