Been there, is a crying shame!! I asked the owner whether he would sell any and apart for some 1970/1/2/3/4 fairlanes he said no. When asked whether he would rather let them rust to pieces that selling he said yes, it his cars...

I was there in July. It is more of a graveyard than a museum. Many desirable cars rusted beyond repair. Owner not open to any offers - said he receives most of his income from ad agencies doing commercial shoots. Pity.

The only worse thing than people not selling cars like this is people who sell shells/rotten crap for very high prices. Collectable cars has inflated to an unsustainable prices currently and in the current finanical times there is bound to be a dip in prices.

Just saw this thread now. What a shame! If he is so old you would think he would be prepared to let some of the cars go to good homes.
