Another call last week, “I have too many cars and need to start selling!” Music to my ears! All that was mentioned is: its a 40 car collection and made up of mostly Italians. I didn’t get any other details, so I truly didn’t know what to expect. It was Monday and our agreed appointment of Friday couldn’t have come quicker.
I pull up to a massive garage (6,500 SF to be exact) in a residential neighborhood. The building had the looks of new construction, so immediately I think to myself, these are not abandoned cars.
At this point, I can barely contain myself from the excitement. Some how, my gut knew it was going to be good, but once we went inside, IT WAS GLORIOUS!
Not necessarily because of the rarity of the cars inside, but because it was everything I would have in my personal collection. Yes, a lot of Alfa’s, Ferrari’s and Lancia’s, and two Porsche’s too…can’t forget those.
Now, the collector is a very under the radar kind of guy, so out of his request, I will not go into specifics about the collection or pictures.
Not everything was available for sale, but here’s what we picked up:
- 1972 Lancia Fulvia Berlina
- 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV
- 1971 Oldmobile Cutlass Convertible with original 455
- 1979 Alfa Romeo Alfetta Sport Sedan
One of the best parts of my job is meeting individuals, like this collector, and finding out about the history and personal interest he had in these car. I am looking forward to continuing my relationship with him. I hopefully can help grow and expand his collection and represent some of his cars as well. Not to bad for a day’s work!
These four great new cars are already in my inventory and with a 6,600 mile Alfa Romeo Sport Sedan, perhaps the lowest milage example in the world! To find out more about each car, visit thebarnmiami.com
