    Default Stash of 240k's

    I met a guy who is hording all the C110's, he had 6 x coupes, 2 x 4 doors, 1 x C210 coupe, 1 x Skyline GT-B, 1 x very early model celica coupe, eh wagon.

    And no he will not sell any of them and there is no way I will be telling you where they are. It's sad to see so many just sitting there but he honestly believes he will restore most of them to pristine condition one day.

    And if he doesn't get around to restoring them before he passes away they will come up for auction...

    There are lots of people who like to horde stuff--anything.

    I visited a guy near Auckland airport 30 years ago who had a paddock full of old cars and WW2 military trucks. Tried to engage in conversation, but was told to f@#k off.
    They are still there rotting into the ground . Such a shame.

    Did he let you take pictures of any of the cars with the covers off?

    I reckon it is awesome! most of the car's look intact and atleast he has pretty decent newish covers on them (except the first one).. that would probably be how my backyard would have looked if i had kept all mine

    Is that the one with original number plates? If so I've seen that one too.

    He's not a member and probably won't be. I'll be amazed if he even restores just one. Some of them have already been stolen which is sad.

    nah he had a few just sitting on the road out the front of his house that were mint and they were taken a few years ago, I haven't spoken to him in ages and I would never tell anyone where they are located that's for sure.

    This is walking distance from my house :P and this is only a small number of them. I also won't spill where they are but iv met him and he is a nice enough bloke willing to help to an extent I.e having moulds made of panels but he won't part with any parts. But he is very resourceful if you do need anything and willing to have a chat.
