          Good question!
          Looks like I'll have to go with Carsdownunder's suggestion: A place to put a model car!

            Like maybe a barn? After all, what's a "Barn Find" without a barn?

            Is that wagon wheel scratch built? If it is, super nice job!

              Yeah! Sounds good!

              Would you make a custom car that is all rusty to be the actual "barn find"? Matchbox or a different brand?

                  It's still neat though. Did it come from a wooden wagon kit?

                    Maybe... still got the flower bed truck I made a some time ago, could be a good fit, it may be a bit too colorful though ... (It's a Hot Wheels Chevy I think?)

                      That is very nice! Awesome job!

                      I was thinking more like this maybe, but maybe like with some vines and grass on it like the one above? (the pic is from ebay)

                        That's a cool weathered out truck, thanks for that suggestion ... but ... oh yeah, for sure, the options and ideas are limitless me thinks... The Blues Brothers Dodge? Christine?

                        I'm not good at planning stuff. At some time I'll get some inspiration, and go for a model I already got, or get me a new one... It's should work out somehow ...

                          So,yeah, I should've really started with this, as this is a barn, where one could find a car in... No idea how I got to building a log cabin for a barn... oh well ...

                          Used this image as inspiration:

                          Here's how it might fit the cabin.

                                No, it came in a plastic bag full of Western Cowboy stuff and some wagons and other parts... all plastic!
