Most of us dream that, one day, a distant, wealthy relative will bequeath to us a secret fortune. It would be great if somebody could come along and give us enough money that it completely changes our life for the better—but unfortunately, it’s not that common.

Yet that dream became a reality for one English family in 2007. After the passing of their eccentric uncle, Dr. Harold Carr, a brother and sister were amazed to find that he’d left them a hefty little inheritance.

But oddly enough, it wasn’t in a bank… it was in a garage. Not only did this discovery make them rich, but it made history!
