9780760344002: Strange but True Tales of Car Collecting: Drowned Bugattis, Buried Belvederes, Felonious Ferraris and other Wild Stories of Automotive Misadventure
From the Publisher:

Most car collectors exhibit a healthy enthusiasm for their favourite hobby, a tendency to chase parts, swap stories, and generally live the petrolhead life. Some, however, step over that fine line between enthusiasm and obsession  and that's the place from which spring the legendary car-collector stories.

In Strange but True Tales of Car Collecting, Keith Martin and the staff of Sport Car Market Magazine (US) recount the wildest car-collecting stories of all time, focusing on tales of the most eccentric and over-the-top collectors and collections. Have you heard of the fellow who squirrelled away dozens of Road Runners, Chevelles, Camaros, and other classic muscle cars in caravans? How about the president of Shakespeare fishing rods who in the 1960s sold 30 now-priceless Bugattis for a mere $250,000? The English nobleman who cut up and buried his Ferrari horde in an elaborate insurance scam? Or how about the Duesenberg abandoned in a Manhattan parking garage for decades and uncovered by Tonight Show host Jay Leno?

These are just a few of the amazing stories explored in this entertaining book, a must-have title for any car enthusiast. Both car collectors and fans of outrageous classic car, muscle car, and sports car stories will find entertainment in these tales of collectors who've gone off the rails.
