A landowner is trying to get in touch with the owner of 105 classic cars before he is forced to sell them at auction, thisisstaffordshire.co.uk reports.
Mark Greaves has issued a public notification to the owner of the impressive fleet, explaining that unless he comes forward soon to claim the cars, they will be sold off. The vast collection comprises classic British and American models. It is currently parked on Mr Greaves' property at Biddulph Park in Staffordshire.
The owner was a former tenant who was evicted for failing to pay his rent, despite having the cash to grow such an extensive fleet of classic and not-so-classic cars. They include a Humber Super Snipe, Triumph Stag, Cortina soft top and Porsche 911.
More impressively, dailymail.co.uk reports, the collection boasts rare treasures like a Model T Ford (which is probably a century old) and a Jensen Interceptor thought to have been manufactured in West Bromwich.
Under normal circumstances, anyone that owns a collection of vehicles of this size would be wise to install fleet tracking systems as an increased security measure, in addition to storing such rarities in more fitting conditions. Sadly, many of the cars are in need of some tender loving care.
Nevertheless, the collection has been called 'a treasure trove' for classic car enthusiasts and the auction - should it take place - is expected to collectively bring in 'a six-figure sum', according to one expert.
However, if the owner does come forward, he will not only have to re-house all of the cars, but will face a bill of £108,990 in storage fees. These have been accumulated since the cars were abandoned in July.
