Someone was obviously a collector with interesting tastes.

Back on November 2 NCM Auctions and Asset Management in Britain auctioned off in excess of 130 cars. These vehicles were seized by a local court, something which happens all the time. What makes this case phenomenal is the completely weird assortment of cars in the collection. Many are kit cars, but a fair amount are modified or partly disassembled production vehicles.

You really need to go through the gallery above to see some of these cars, because words won’t do them justice. For example, there’s the Range Rover Carmichael Commander, which means it’s been elongated and a third axle has been added. Rivulets of rust running down the body panels give a pretty good indication of what the new owner faces, but still what an SUV!

Another is a Jaguar E-Type with the steering wheel on the left and all the front body panels missing. There’s a Hustler, which looks like a US mail truck and a golf kart had a baby. VW enthusiasts would be interested in the Golf GTI Convertible, Toyota Celica GT4, VW Buggy, or the TVR Tasmin.

While it’s difficult to tell just from photos, quite a few of these cars look like they’ve been exposed to plenty of moisture. Rust, algae, and fog on the inside of windows indicate anyone who scooped these rides has a lot of work to do.

According to NCM, these vehicles were stored on a property in various barns, where they’re believed to have stayed without running for an undetermined number of years. Considering the large helping of tell-tale barn dust on the exteriors, that’s probably true. Many of the cars were auctioned without any keys or documentation, so bidders were really taking a risk.

How these cars ended up being seized and auctioned is another tale. Apparently, the property where these barn finds were kept was sold for redevelopment. Results of the auction weren’t published, but it’s assumed all the vehicles, plus the four Vespas and 39 sets of vehicle parts were all sold.
