I'll take the fastback in the barn and a couple of John Deeres.

I think the seller is making a mistake trying to sell all of them in one auction. I really don't see too many people ready to fork that kind of money over and show up with 20 car hauler semi's. I would have sold them off one by one to eliminate the junk yard appearance. There are a ton of cars I'd love to have in that auction if I had the space.

It would cost at least double the buy-it-now price to move all of that stuff off of the property. He should simply list about 5 cars a week until everything is gone.

I like the disclaimer at the bottom (obviously an oversight, but kinda funny in context)

looks like one of those scenes from texas chainsaw massacre or the hills have eyes where the people getting chased comes across all of the cars they have "acquired" over the years. whats the point of having all of those antique cars if you are going to let trees grow through them and rot into the ground.

Well, since they quit making those GT500E's I wanted to buy, I guess I'll spend my money on this deal: 93 cars/trucks and 10 tractors for $195,000

Collections like this are not difficult to build if the conditions are right.
By ran out of time..he may have died.
I may very well be one of those where they look and say "This is amazing" in 30 years.
He may have just started in the 40s when some of these cars were just 20 years old.

63 cars and trying to trim it down myself!!
Scrap yard has got a few lately....
88 T-Bird turbocoupe
89 Mazda RX7
76 Mustang II Cobra
89 Tempo
76 Thunderbird
82 conversion van
Which cars will have folks drooling in 20 years?
These were cars beyond hope or picked to the bone...in my opinion.

About the ones that are left?
Projects are slow..especially among more fun cars.
I just finished my Ranger STX truck and brother just raced through a Escort project for a beater.
Next..84 Mustang GT turbo?
Or the Austin Healey Sprite,
Or the Myers Manx dune buggy?
Or fix the slave cylinder on the 91 Ford F250 to make it sellable?
Will the 65 Merc 4 door M-350 wait as we find that better bed for it?

I could have many more cars waiting if I had less restraint.
That $300 Miata with a bad motor is a deal...I even have the correct motor..2 of them!
But it would be at least 7th on my list of projects, so I passed.
Life has caused no progress for the last year..

Yes, I even have a 69 Mustang coupe (pine tree included).

In my track-house neighborhood, I own 6 running cars. I had 7, but sold it last week to trim down the fleet. Oh yeah, my girlfriend has 2 running cars, so that bumps it up to 8 cars from this household. There are only two drivers living here too. My friends say I need to buy a house on a big parcel of land so I can have more room for my cars. No thanks, it's the limited space that keeps me in check. If I had more space to park cars, I would buy more to fill in the space! I'm convinced it's a sickness of some sort. I'll deal with it for now. I must give credit to my neighbors though for putting up with me. None of them are saints though, because the average household here has 3.5 cars and nearly all of those only have two drivers in the house.

Didn't you know that was the RARE Cedar engine option? The c.i. increased every year. :lol:

Average price per car/tractor is about $2k. I would think you could get double that easily out of some of the cars listed there. Could be a good money maker if you lived close by and had the temporary storage. You could end up with a few free mustangs and money to fix them up :)

those kind of "collectors" need to be slapped a few times.
