What a shame. He could have sold just one of them to buy a proper building for the rest to sit in. Sitting over damp dirt is the second best way to destroy a car short of throwing it into the ocean. No undercoat on those old beasts.

Unbelievable how someone would think parking them this way would ok. I'm not a restoration guy but most of those look to far gone to come back in reasonable condition. The one in the shed with the mags on it looks good though.

That's an impressive cache of cars. I hope they get the attention they deserve.
