What is Carchaeology?
Carchaeology - The Series that focuses on his history in the automotive exploration of vintage vehicles. Founded by lifelong automotive adventurer Randy Carlson (As seen on Jay Leno's Garage), Carchaeology sets out to be a champion in the world of automotive exploration, research, and recovery.

If it's classic, crazy, and rare Randy will find it. Watch Carchaeology shorts and full episodes right here on POWERTube TV!

The adrenaline rush upon discovering a field or barn find is unparalleled, sparking a sense of wonder and intrigue about the story behind the forgotten vehicle.

Throughout America, countless tales of rediscovery have emerged, each with its own unique narrative. From the desolate plains of the Midwest to the picturesque landscapes of the South, field, and barn finds have risen from their slumber, allowing their stories to be told once more. A dusty Chevrolet Corvette hidden away in a Nebraska barn, a Ford Model A pickup found in a Texas field, or a long-forgotten Harley-Davidson motorcycle uncovered in an old garage in California—each discovery adds another chapter to America's automotive history.

The process of restoring a field or barn find is a labor of love. Each vehicle presents its own set of challenges, with rust, decay, and worn-out components requiring careful attention.
