Now that I have managed to close my mouth (and wipe the drool from my shirt)... that is really, really over the top (not considering the cars inside).... it's hard to imagine that the guy gave this all up (including contents) in the divorce.

Unless maybe they were HER cars to begin with!?!?

I know a guy who built a 35' sailboat by hand. Started with a shell from a defunct boat company, and travelled the US picking up forms and leftover parts from previous suppliers. Designed by himself any missing fiberglass or finish parts, and put the whole thing together from the keel to the mast. His wife was disdainful of the time and effort he spent on it, and didn't help at all.

His sweat equity ended up being worth about $70,000. When they got divorced he had to fork over half the appraised value to avoid selling the boat. She got the house and cash, but he did get the boat in the end.

Simply amazing, I wonder what he kept (meaning what he did not want to give up) after the divorce :eek: ........

Can we say "pre-nuptial agreement"?

If the cars were hers, great, if not.. like mrmustang said.. what did he keep?

That is unreal how someone could own all those gorgeous cars for all those years, and not use them. That garage is like a time capsule.

It's amazing that that 427 68' was only 6k new.

For 6k now, you can't even buy a used Kia Rio.
