Yeah really ... what a dream that would be.  He probably stole it for $1000.

Just the thought of owning a 73 SD-455 :) Don't find anything like that here in Norway :(

All I have ever found in a barn is hay and rat droppings. I definately am not looking in the right barns. LOL!

In the comments, said it originally was from Arizona but was found in California.
