A healthy bunch of classic muscle cars will be going up for auction very soon, seized by investigators from DC Solar’s ‘Ponzi-type’ scheme. The inventory includes 149 cars, which include a fair chunk of classic muscle cars.
The collection comes from Jeff and Paulette Carpoff, a husband-and-wife team who are accused of defrauding investigators, along with monies from the likes of Berkshire Hathaway’s Warren Buffett. Allegedly, funds were funnelled from their solar energy company, DC Energy, into a lavish lifestyle, which included the purchase of collectable vehicles.
The auction itself is being held by Apple Auctioneering Co. on October 26, 2019 and if anything else, the pair had good taste when it came to vintage muscle cars. Included in the auction are three 1970 Plymouth Barracudas, Plymouth Road Runners ranging from 1968 to 1971 and 1965-67 Mustangs. Checking out the auction homepage there are also other definite standout models available.
A Burt Reynolds owned Pontiac Trans Am, a Dodge Demon, a 1970 Chevelle SS, a Dodge Viper, Superbirds and Daytonas, a few early 70’s Dodge Challengers and Chargers and a few more modern muscle cars. Basically, a bit of everything thrown into the mix.
If you want to take part in the auction, bidding can be done online or in person, with online bids being taken prior to the start date.
Many tasty vehicles up for grabs here. So, if you’re in the market for a prime muscle car, then this auction will be well worth checking out.
