Seven new and classic high-profile cars to be sold off to help those hit hard by the current pandemic.


Just like every year, we kicked off 2020 with high hopes of making this the best year yet. Of course, that all changed when the coronavirus pandemic started spreading across the globe like a raging wildfire fueled by gasoline. Everyone was issued to stay at home in hopes of stopping the virus from spreading even more. Social distancing is our new norm. Since we became aware of it a couple months ago, businesses have shut down, people have lost jobs, kids are being taught virtually at home, and we are ordered to stay at least 6 feet away from one another at all times. While times are tough no matter where you look moment, here is a feel-good story that involves a private car collector that is selling a chunk of their collection to help those affected by COVID-19. From old-school rare American muscle to high-end exotics, 7 cars from the Ash Crest Collection are up for grabs with all proceeds to benefit families and small businesses affected by the pandemic.

As mentioned above, hard times are upon us, but that is not the reason why this collector has decided to sell a handful of his beautiful cars. The Ash Crest Collection, located in Fort Wayne, Indiana, made a statement on Instagram that they are selling a portion of the car collection and donating 100 percent of the funds to aid victims of this life-altering coronavirus.

As you all know, we are currently in the midst of a global crisis that has and continues to devastate the lives of so many people. Cars have been such a strong passion of ours and given us and our community so much joy. However, as we look around at our local community, we see so much pain and strife that have been created from the COVID-19 pandemic. We have been incredibly blessed and privileged with the resources to weather such a catastrophe, yet so many people are not. We feel that our cars could serve a much larger purpose at this moment. Because of this, we plan to sell a portion of our collection and give 100% of all received funds to local businesses and families that have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 crisis in the greater Fort Wayne and northeast Indiana region. Though we typically just use Instagram to post about our cars, we feel this is one of the best outlets to connect with the entire automotive community and reach those that may be able to help us in this cause. For those of you that are interested in our cars: thank you. We are so excited to use them for an even greater purpose. However, let us clarify something: we do not need to sell these cars - we WANT to sell them. Please think of this in your offers and remember what you are supporting: the livelihoods of so many that are struggling to get by during this challenging and unprecedented time. If you have any questions for us or are interested in our cars, please reach out through DM or email me at austin.ash@ashcrestcollection.com Stay safe and healthy! . . . #ashcrestcollection #dreamsaremadeathome #fortwayne #indiana #covid #forsale #pandemic #covidrelief #coronavirus #local #stayinside #supportlocalbusinesses #thankyou #drive #porsche #carsofinstagram #privatecollection #garagegoals #supercars #hypercar #hypercars

As of this writing seven beautiful cars have been listed for sale including:

1. 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 6-speed manual

2. 2007 Ferrari F430 Spider

3. 2006 Ferrari F430 Spider

4. 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS in Mexico Blue with the Weissach package

5. 2004 Porsche 911 GT3

6. 1967 Chevrolet Corvette in Rally Red with a 427/435 Big Block

7. 1966 Chevy Corvette survivor in Nassau Blue powered by an L72 Big-Block 427

This is an immeasurable gesture by the Ash Crest Collection, and there's no denying that all of the cars will find wonderful new homes all while helping the community. The private collection also includes rare cars such as the Pagani Huayra, McLaren Senna, and a LaFerrari. In addition, there is also a Ferrari 488 Pista, a few Porsche 922 GT3s, some classic Porsches, and old-school Nissan Skyline GT-Rs.

While each car that was listed for sale would normally sell for a pretty penny, these may go for even higher prices considering the reason why they are selling to begin with. They are not selling these cars out of necessity, but out of the goodness of their hearts to lend a much-needed helping hand during trying times. It's always nice to hear hopeful stories such as this one, especially when negativity seems to be at an all-time high. We would like to thank the Ash Car Collection for this incredibly selfless deed.
