FOUND Motorcars started with a book I wrote a few years back called FOUND. The Lives of Interesting Cars and How They Were Discovered. A Novel.
I've loved 'interesting cars' since a kid and have, more recently focused on original, untouched automobiles. While I also appreciate nicely restored cars and have a few in my collection, I do LOVE unearthing truly original special cars.
Since retiring from a career in technology I decided to see where the classic car world would take me. I've opened a small dealership just outside of Seattle with a focus on finding cool cars and completing the necessary work to bring them back to reliable, thrilling rides. Some for sale, some probably not. If you see a story you like please let me know.
1967 Porsche 911S
Unrestored, fascinating detailed history, 1st year of the "S", 1st year of the Targa, 1st year of the iconic Fuchs
The '67 911S has always been a special sports car. But finding a highly original soft window Targa--the top of the line for Porsche in 1967-- is like finding hens' teeth
1967 Citroen DS21
Delivered new to San Francisco, this highly original, genuine Chapron Decapotable, has had an amazing history involving drugs murder, deceit, and love.
Arrived this past summer from a cross country tour from
Connecticut to Pebble Beach, and then a spirited drive up the coast to Seattle where it has been brought up to snuff with new paint, carpeting, Chapron trim, etc for its next caretaker to enjoy.
1961 Citroen 2CV Van Glacauto
Rare special edition AZU
Need to deliver flowers or baguettes? I've got just the van! An original 12 Horsepower (yes, 12) 2CV van. Over 1,200,000 2CV vans were made but only a handful were converted by Glacauto. Amazingly this one survived.

3.0 Litre, 5 speed
Bought new at Kolar’s in Seattle
Under 12,000 miles
Basically ‘as new’ in every detail, including tires
Stored in the original owners heated basement, under blankets, for decades
