The owner should not have done to this to the cars and I hope some will buy and restore the car, though not a single person can restore all cars.

Went through the article and I wish I was living there right now!!!. I would love to get my hands on that De Tomaso!! Would'nt mind spending a bomb to get it going. Talk about rare cars!
I wonder if the guy really liked any of these cars?? Very apt comparison to a child getting gifts at Christmas. Imagine getting bored with any one of them even if you had the money!!
