In the vast forests of Alaska, you wouldn’t expect to find much of anything unnatural. Yet, for John McDonald, filling a clearing with eight-decade-old American metal seems to come naturally.
Over his 31-years of living in North Pole, Alaska, McDonald has acquired quite the collection, ranging from Studebakers to old Ford hot rods and even a WWII era ambulance. The last one looks like something straight out of Jeepers Creepers.
After meeting John McDonald a few weeks earlier at a Fairbanks car event, Barn Find Hunter host Tom Cotter makes the drive down the gravel lane leading to McDonald’s place – where he finds the antique collection surrounded by the spruce filled forests of Alaska.
