“Grandma asks granddaughter to clean their old garage after grandpa passes away, but she realizes their life is going to change after she finds these two vintage masterpieces in it. Helping out your grandparents when they really need it most is one of the best things you could do after all.
For many of us, our grandparents were basically our second set of parents. When one woman decided to help her grandma out by cleaning out the garage, she had no idea what she would soon discover hiding in the darkness.
Reddit user Erie Gin is known on the site for posting a lot about her international travels. She particularly loves street food and has traveled all throughout Asia in order to try it. However, despite all of her travels, she wasn’t prepared for what she came across in her own grandmother’s garage.
The Reddit user shared with everyone that her grandmother had asked her to help her clean out her garage. Erie Gin, of course, couldn’t say no to her grandmother, especially since her grandfather had just recently passed away. She also figured it could be a fun way to rummage through old stuff that would bring back memories.
Now, in the past, many Reddit users have shared their stories of cleaning out their parents’ or grandparents’ old garages, attics, or basements. Often times, the story is followed up by an amazing discovery. However, none of these stories even compares at all to what Erie Gin would find in that garage.
Recently, Erie Gin had found herself in a bit of a financial crisis. It had been hard for her to make ends meet recently, and it was really beginning to stress her out. In fact, she was so stressed that whenever a bill would come in the mail, she would automatically panic. She was now particularly more stressed out because she had to deal with her grandfather’s estate. Still, she happily obliged her grandmother.
Little did she know that she’d find something in the garage that would greatly change her life. Dealing with her grandfather’s estate had been incredibly time-consuming for Erie Gin.
She and her grandmother had to go through dozens of documents and read through so many things. However, one of the things that was making her particularly nervous was the numbers. As she continued to go through the calculations, Erie Gin began to get more and more nervous.
It seemed that her grandmother’s finances weren’t looking very good. In fact, she soon realized that her grandmother would no longer be able to live on her own. She’d have no choice but to end up in a nursing home. Erie Gin dreaded having to break the news to her grandmother.
Finally, the day had come when Erie Gin knew she would have to break the bad news to her grandmother. So, she went downstairs to have breakfast with her when her grandmother broke the ice in another way. It was that day that she asked Erie Gin to clean out the garage. For all those years, her grandfather used the garage as his mancave.
That was where he had stored all of his things. She also remembered her grandfather being incredibly secretive and never really talking about much. She decided that clearing out the garage would also give her a glimpse into the life of her grandfather.
As Erie Gin began to clean out the garage, she noticed something pretty big hanging out of one of the corners. At first, she didn’t pay it any mind. However, as she got closer to that area, she decided to look and see what it was. Her mind was blown when she realized what her grandfather had been hiding all those years underneath the tarpaulin.
Erie Gin made an incredibly rare discovery. Sitting in the garage was a 1982 LP 500 S Lamborghini Countach. There are only 321 of these models that were ever made, making this car an incredibly rare model. However, this wasn’t the end of her discoveries. Erie Gin was blown away by the discovery of the rare Lamborghini model. That’s when she noticed that there was another car in the corner, hanging out under a tarpaulin. When she pulled it off, she was shocked to discover another interesting car model.
As Erie Gin removed the tarpaulin, she was shocked to discover another car. This one happened to be a faded Ferrari 308. Although this car isn’t as rare, it was still an amazing discovery. In fact, Erie Gin recognized it as the car Tom Selleck drove in Magnum P.I. Eerie Gin was shocked by the discovery of the cars.
She’d never expected to find a rare Lamborghini and a Ferrari just sitting in her grandfather’s garage. That’s when she realized that she could actually sell the cars for a decent amount of money. This would help her and her grandmother out a lot.
The Lamborghini discovered in her grandfather’s garage was a 500 S model with a 4.8-liter V12 engine. Back in its prime, the car could have easily been worth 400 to 500 thousand dollars. However, in the condition the car’s in now, it would be worth much less. Still, the Daily Mirror reported that the cars could be worth around the same price if they were to be sold together.
Eerie Gin, however, had a lot of questions about where the cars had come from, and she asked her grandmother. Her grandmother was more than happy to explain. Eerie Gin’s late grandpa bought the Lamborghini for his exotic car rental business in 1989, but after insurance costs became too high for him to operate the company, he kept the cars in leaky garages for 20-plus years instead of selling them. Seems like her grandfather made a wise decision all those years back.
It seems that Eerie Gin’s decision to help her grandmother clear out the garage had been a wise one.
She was able to come across not one, but two vehicles that could help out her grandmother in their financial minds. Talk about a lucky discovery.”
