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

Most car collectors exhibit a healthy enthusiasm for their favorite hobby, a tendency to dig into their favorite marques, chase parts, swap stories, and generally live the car-guy 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 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 Chevelles, Camaros, and other classic muscle cars in semi trailers? How about the president of Shakespeare fishing rods who in the 1960s sold 30 now-priceless Bugattis for a mere $85,000? 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.

From the Inside Flap:

Experimental X-vehicles—how bizarre!Ghastly ghost cars—how macabre! Forlorn Ferraris—how desperately sad! Discover more in STRANGE BUT TRUE TALES OF CAR COLLECTING! The two-faced playboy . . . the jealous widow . . . the tinkering priest! These stories and more are all a part of the rich—and often beguiling—history of some of the world’s most famous vehicles. From futuristic test cars to the truth behind one particularly memorable vehicle of the silver screen, more than 30 stories of strange but true tales of automotive misadventure can be found within this book.   Maybe you’ve heard of the famous Portuguese barn-find before, or wondered just how long it would take to cobble together a Cadillac one piece at a time—wonder no more! How much money would it take to buy 30 classic Bugattis? How could anyone let a Testa Rossa sit untended for more than 15 years? And do you love your car so much that you’d ask to be buried in it? These tales and more await inside. Some are lewd, others are crude, but they all have one thing in common—they’re all true!

From the Back Cover:

Abandoned Bugattis? Rusty Rolls-Royces? A priceless collection of historic vehicles, rotting in the sun? The horror . . .the horror! But that’s what you’ll find inside Strange but True Tales of Car Collecting. As many car enthusiasts know, the automotive world is rife with otherworldly stories of intrigue, mystery, chance, redemption, and ruin. The stories collected here are some of the best, culled from those who lived or witnessed them firsthand. They stretch East to West and North to South, stories from deep in America’s heartland, all the way to the foggy streets of London and the tropical jungles of Brunei. Bizarre players? Check. Beautiful cars? Check. Femme fatales? A few. But there’s only one way to find out—open the book, turn the page, and prepare to be amazed!
