An Iowa barn gives up muscle instead of mothballs. One of the largest discovered caches of classic cars ever found to head to auction.

The existence of a 110-strong "muscle car hoard" has been revealed to the public for the first time. In September, most of the collection will be auctioned off at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in Red Oak. 

The collection was the life's work of Coyote Johnson and hidden in a series of sheds constructed around groups of the cars on his property near Red Oak. Few outside of his immediate family knew the extent of Johnson's collection. 

Within the hoard lies numerous Chargers, Challengers, Camaros, Impalas, GTXs, Chevrolets, Chevelles, Trans Ams, Roadrunners—Johnson's car of choice— and at least one Firebird convertible, all entombed in their sheds and lined up in dusty, multifoliate rainbow rows.
