For those who are not too acquainted with ‘Storage Wars’, Barry Weiss is one of the bidders who bid on the storage lockers that are auctioned, on the show itself. So, why does this specific person deserve special mention and why is it that he has thousands of fans and followers in so short a time?
The answer is easy to understand for any person who watches the show on A&E regularly. Barry Weiss is unique to say the least!
It would not even be wrong to say that he is a little eccentric and quirky in his own right. After all, he does exactly what he wants and how he wants and doesn’t are a bit about what his competitors have to say about it.

The same can also be said about his competitors on the show. Among them, Barry even had a major ongoing clash with Dave Hester, aka ‘The Mogul’.

In fact, Barry has often claimed that he will not be selling this car. The most famous one is however, the Cowboy Cadillac.
