    Holy crap.

    If I ran across something like that I'd make darn sure they sold it to me.

    those pictures are nothing compared to this story I read in autoweek a few years back. There was this saultin in some mideast country that was a huge car collector. He had some of the rarest super cars ever made. One that I really remember was a station wagon that he had ferrari custom make for him. Ferrari station wagon >>>> any people mover. Anyways this guy was assissinated and his successor has basicly said let the cars rot. He has a huge warehouse stuffed with his collection, however, it is not the best environment for storing a car and now no one maintains them. The new ruler will also not give the property up.

    Damn, I had a 54 Chevy Belaire that sat through three floods, and still could be made to start. When My grandparents passed away I wasn't in a position to buy transport, and restore it. I regret not making an effort now :(
