I have a buddy who has owned a shop for a very very long time and over the years he has compiled quite a collection of vehicles. Old Jags including a sovereign and a few V12s , MGs of all sorts, a Yugo parts car, Beems of all sorts, an Alfa or two, plenty of Mercedes, a Sunbeam Alpine, a wrangler with a ford motor that needs a slave cyl, a Jensen Healy (that comes with an extra body and full spare engine) and 2 Rolls both complete one good one for parts.

Well now he's closing up around the 30th of November and needs to sell off a few things. Some of the stuff he's asking very fair prices on other things... well not so much but he definitely has a few deals that could turn into 2k challenge cars or just a great projects.

I took some quick shots of his yard if there's anything more specific you'd like to see or know more about let me know and I can snap a few more pics and ask questions for you. Quite a few are in parts car condition but others are definitely saveable I will also updated with more pics when I get more including the sunbeam and good rolls.

 Located in Houston Texas but I'd be happy to deliver to Austin free or anywhere else for price of diesel and a few bucks

Interior isn't the best. It's said to have run recently but it currently has a dead fuel pump.

There are quite a few that are in good condition, more even that aren't pictured. 
He also has a very nice 70s SL450.

Nothing odd about being drawn to a Lamborghini of any variety or veracity

A bonanza! A fleet of Challenge cars!!!

And Texas! if they are not on the coast they are likely rust free!!!

What do I have to do to become an Alpine owner? I didn't see it in the pics....

"MGs of all sorts"...you have my attention, details and prices please? Might be able to talk my wife into a chrome bumper car

Tell me more about the Wrangler. I'm here in Austin

10/26/20 10:53 a.m.

I'm most interested in if the Parts Rolls Royce has an engine that could be saved. And the Alfas. And... just, just take more pictures.

Send me a PM for more pics it came in for a slave cyl and never left I think he'd take under 2K.

Sorry for the super late reply I've been working crazy hours this week but I will soon get pics of the Alpine and a few others. The Lambo might be worked into challenge price if you did some interesting book keeping I'll update with an asking price.

The Rolls engine is complete and IIRC it turns by hand and may even crank off the starter. 

As for the MGs there is honestly too many to list but a majority are in parts car condition however he does have a few nice MG Bs I'll snag pics next time I'm there next week of all I haven't already pictured.

Any 914s?

Was that a Ford Courier?  What sort of condition is it in?

The Lambo is a Fiero right?  What's going on with all that square tubing?

I kinda want to drive that Celebrity(?) wagon around with the Beetle on top as-is.

I'm 90 percent sure you could snag both for 1000 or less

In reply to Mr_Asa :

No 914s I don't think. I believe it was a Courier not too rusty but definitely a bit crusty I can give it a one over next time I'm there.

Ok I got a bit more info.

The lambo as it sits he wants $2500 but money really talks to this guy so anyone with an offer who'd want to talk to him might get it lower.

The Jeep he's looking for $2750

Parts car Rolls 3K throw in the good one $7000

The black Alfa he wants $7000 for but it runs and drives

And for the Sunbeam he's looking for $2500 

This Monday or so I'll get pics of the Sunbeam and a few others.
