  • Huge Car Collection Sold w/ Studes

    This one totally went by me for some reason!

    Former SDC member Marine Wolf passed away last October, leaving a huge collection of cars, parts, and accessories (including Studes galore).
    I thought perhaps his amassed junkyard would be sold on Hemmings, but it showed up on eBay and I MISSED IT! Someone hit the BIN.

    Here's the link -

    WOW! What a package! Could be a good deal- all depends on condition and actual models of the cars. Last night on B-J an Airflow was sold as a barn find- was totally buried under hay bales, owener died, widow didn't know her late husband even had it! Was in excellent condition, but it was said that it didn't take much to get it there; sold for $300K[:0] Can't wait to get to my house with high-speed internet tomorrow so I can see if there's pictures...[B)]

    I'd like to meet the person who bought this package! Looks like a lottery winner or inheritance recipient[8D] 57 eBay purchases since last September- everything from motorcycle parts, a bunch of BB Ford engine parts, model train stuff, sports cards, even a Little Mommy Bedtime Doll! Also just bought a 71 Ford for $430... then $195 THOUSAND on a whole bunch of cars! I cringe at the thought of what it will take to move 110 cars[:0]

    I'll be watching this buyer's eBay activity to see if this stuff starts appearing for sale individually

    Note to JDP- Maybe this buyer has some money left over and would like to add a really nice GT or two to his collection

        Yikes....
        I think his estate made out quite well..
        That is a big chunk of money for what was shown.
        I wish the new re-seller well.
        Imagine moving all that stuff.

            Astonishing. What a stash. Oh, for the time and place to move it, sort it, and see that it all got into proper hands. That was one man's lifetime accumulation...and could easily be another man's lifetime dispersion! BP

                            Seriously now; you guys are kidding. Right??

                            That's a good buy??

                            All that JUNK spread all over outdoors, rotting. The cost of cataloguing, moving, re-selling. . .

                            and only $195,000.00

                            American dollare must be worth less than I thought.
