    ah, the question impossible to answer... can't comment w/ any specific answer without any specific info...

    i'd recommend asking the guy if he's looking to make a couple hundred bucks and then see what his response is. many times people who have cars sitting rusting outside seem to think they're worth more than they are.

    wave 5 hundreds in his mug, tell him you will take all of them... usually works.

    First off, do you want to buy them all?
    Second, are they complete cars?
    Third, what condition are they?
    Fourth, Do you want to sell them or restore them?
    And the list goes on............................
    Try to narrow it down a bit.

    If you arrange to remove them all in one day, the price he's willing to take is sure to drop, cause convinience may be what this guy is looking for. $500 bucks and they'll be out of there tomorrow. then spend the rest on a couple of Tow trucks to drive them out of there to your place or warehouse all day.

    With a "collection" like that, you are probably going to hear that he is going to "fix them up one day" or he will think they are worth $50,000 each. "Why I saw one like this one, only with shinny paint, sell on that Jackson- Barret Auction sell for a lot more then I'm asking."

    Never hurts to ask, but just don't expect the answer your probably thinking. Most people don't have that many old cars just laying around, they are still there for a reason.

  13. It's not worth your time if they're all rusty and trashed. I mess with rusty trashed cars all the time, though, maybe you should tell me how to find this place?
