Can't get them all!

After a nice vacation in FL, I diverted and tried to make a deal on this beautiful barn find, it wasn't meant to be, no deal was made, but it was fun to stare at! They are still out there!!!

Too bad it's just wasting away in Margaritaville....

Damn, Adam, is that thing on a beach-sand floor with a canopy? Interesting - I know you buy fair so the dude must be 1) asking way too much, or 2) Jimmy Buffett.

Guess he'll let his estate take care of it....

I found this car about 5 years ago, the price then was crazy, I was in FL last week soaking up the sun and thought I would check in, the price went from crazy to insane. It's like I've always said, if the math doesn't work, it doesn't matter what the car is, math is math.

The good news is my feet went from snow to surf, and appreciated it!

In the classifieds of a 'Autoweek' was a 962 ready to race with spare engine, wheels, etc. for $50,000 in 1987.

Man, if we're going to break out the time machine and start buying cars, I've got some calls to make.

Adam,
Would you be willing to share a little about what you learned regarding this specific carís history and status as you saw it? Understanding specifics regarding location, identity and price are personal details that would not be appropriate.

For posterity.

Man, I've been working this car for 5 years and still hope to get it, so I can't really talk about any of the details. But rest assured if I do snag it I will write a whole article about it.

Adam, I think you should also write a book about the psychology of people having to have their classics removed from their cold, dead fingers. I am sure you have a myriad stories of people well into old age and close to death who still and won't give a thing up. This sort of thing reminds me of my old landlord who had weeks to live - and when his brother came to visit him and asked for the old family table saw back, he wouldn't give it up - and asked 'How much are you going to give me for it?' The brother looked at him like he was crazy.

Oh, well. I guess we all think we're going to live forever - and take it with us.

And yes, at some point we will have to part with everything. Just wait five more years when the economy is in the tank and you'll get a call.

You can learn a lot about what it takes if you read my article on buying.

Great article Adam. It sounds like a really fun challenge. Hopefully they pay off way more than they donít. Iím still curious how you even come across these stashes when theyíre totally off the grid in terms of being advertised. Assuming that most have no interest in selling their hoard when you first call them, Iím also wondering how open they are to even show you what they have. Is it a challenge just talking yourself in the door?

One of the largest's deals I've ever done was a couple of years ago, 50 cars total, mostly 356's but about a dozen 911/912's thrown in. It took me five years to put together, and once I did everyone was amazed the guy sold anything, he had never sold a car in 30 years. I have a black book of cars and parts stashes all over the country, some I've seen, some I just know about. You just stay on it, like this car in the opening part of the thread. I found it 5 years ago, I was in FL so I thought I should touch base with the guy, you never know, it could have gone my way, it didn't, but it could've.
The 50 car deal, you can see many of them on our poster.

---Adam
