    Some of these old classics are new with less than a dozen miles on the odometer.

    I saw those on Proxibid the other day. What a find! Look on Proxibid & see what the Corvette with 8 miles has for a bid already!

    If Mr. L. had invested fifty or sixty thousand in a couple of large storage buildings, these cars would be worth millions more than they will sell for. He stored brand new cars outside for fifty years, for what reason?

    Years ago there was a Pontiac enthusiast here in Central Ohio that sold a collection of cars.

    Like Eightbore says, he had them stored outside in a farm field. Trees and weeds all around, also swampy in some spots.

    What could have been some good restorable cars were reduced to Junk status.
