Are you Michigan guys up to speed on this guy being forced to scrap his car collection? I see 3 Fieros in the pics.

I can't see the reason to have kept most of the Mercedes cars shown. Only a couple look interesting. The old ones and the 2 door convertibles are keepers.

Yes, that hoarder killed so many great cars. He still wants good money for anything left, a lot of which is beyond repair.

The Mercedes people are saying the same thing about those Fieros.

That guy had his own personal "wildcat" junkyard. Would you want to look out your window and see that in your neighborhood? I know I sure as hell wouldn't.

I'm sure they are. But a 300E? Let it go. I junkyard several times a week and not much interest is given to that type of Mercedes. The Fieros that show up get parted pretty hard.

Since his property across the street is commercial and many of the cars got moved over there, I can't imagine it's much to look at around the neighborhood, but that isn't a point I was making. Scrap those crappy Mercedes to keep the good Mercedes.

Reminds me of the "Cuyama Car Garden" in California. Its all gone now; the owner died and all the best cars got auctioned off very quickly. My friend sneaked in for photos (and passed about forty "No Trespassing" signs) and got run off by a very angry (and very drunk) caretaker a few years ago.

A price of $400 and $500 for basically non running parts cars that spent years in the grass? This man is either ignorant or delusional. He will end up junking them and getting $200 each as the metal content is lower than on other cars. Such as it is with hoarders. They think that they have gold but most of what they own is junk. .

Yup most are junk including two Fiero but _____ wants top dollar to sell anything. Seen that many times.
Big issue is High salt roads will eat them even parked for years. He's "mint-condition AMC Pacer Wagon interior" and others can be very rotten.

Two years since he sign the order and still whining... The County was Very nice to give that. Philly and many others would have them towed in Hours to Days after winning in Court AND bill him a huge amount of money.

Many places have strict rules for junk yards And been so for Decades in most of them. Not just leaking whatever contaminating the ground water etc. but are big fires waiting to happen. One insurance yard near me that doesn't deal w/ public had a big fire a few months ago. Another junk yard fire closed a big road for hours and runoff contaminated a river.

Many yards won't even pay that. Scrap value is way low and cost to tow etc. eats money. Just Fuel and CDL driver for X hours can eat money fast. May find a place to haul for Free but in many places, Many would need to pay them to haul away junk cars.

I recommend you high-quality service to get cash for cars of old or simply unnecessary cars, when you need it or when necessary. I think this is a great thing for everyone because it is always difficult to get rid of such things.

I was wondering if he had hacked an inactive account or was playing the long game?
