250 GTO in a barn in Northern Ireland

Well according to a guy from what we call "the daft site" jon44w.com over here. It's a local website for the younger car youth, you really don't want to wander in there. It's full of "my mates Vectra is qker thn ur mates ford". I have to wander in due to running our club and in case something useful might turn up.
Anyway I wandered in tonight and one of them is claiming somebody he knows has a stripped GTO lying at the back of his barn for years.
In my 45 years of living here I have never even heard a sniff of one here. I thought they were all accounted for.
He seen it when he was 11 so I'm assuming it's a replica.

They are all accounted for and 10 million cars tend to get sniffed out pretty quickly.

It is remotely possible that the car being referred to is a "250" series car from Ferrari, like a 250GT or something like that. You just never know what's out there....

I know they used to race round the Dundrod circuit but I have serious reservations it's a real one.
I'll see if I can dig any info up.

All the real ones are very well accounted for.
