Fellow buys property in Portugal with locked barn...

Just saw this and don't know any other details other than what I see. A guy buys a piece of property in Portugal for near nothing and it has a locked barn. Lock is cut off and well, you can imagine what was next.

Could someone assist in the translation on some of this to fill in details.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Thumbs up

It is likely that I'd be selling some as fast as I can to get myself a Veyron.

Nice find is an understatement.

Too bad he does not have the keys or the titles for all of these since they were all hot. That's right, stolen vehicles from a major Portuguese car theft ring from the early 70's. Gone in 60 seconds was loosely based on these guys.
