First I would probably jizz my pants. Then I would get every single one running and go for a ride! That shouldn't be a problem as they all look to be in great shape. Sell the ones I dont like, maybe keep a dozen.

I heard about that on a radio show a couple weeks ago. They said it had turned out to be a hoax.

...But if it was real and happened to me, I'D LOSE MY MIND!!!

This has been floating around for at least 5 years (first time I saw it) but I never did hear if it was true or not.

Yea i cant imagine they would sell a property w/out checking whats in the barn (they could have got a ladder up to a window even).

That would be insane tho...

Its a shame things like this are rarely true, I had a customer come in a year or so ago, old retired black man telling me about a 4 story building he had to clear out with his friend in the 70's, he was wearing a very nice Rolex which is what I was asking about. Apparently an old man who was a recluse died, he was an inventor and received royalty checks weekly. He spent all of his money on mail order items, he had well over three dozen grandfather clocks, hundreds of watches, fine china, etc. I'm not sure if any of that was true but the watch looked legit.

Looks like the coke business pays off, unless u die. Who else has that many cars? Anyone ever look into the old boys business? Who else can afford that many cars?

very true brendon : any car collecter wouldn't just let them sit like that without covering them up. let alone weld the doors shut.
They were eather stolen, car clepto; or used in trafficing meth, coke, or bringing unwanted kids to the black market baby road show.

Mabe they invested in cars. Buy a bunch of new cars, sell them in like 40 years, and make a killing. I wonder how much all those cars were worth when new.
