I had a tour of his collection around 10 years ago. It was mostly American convertibles with the odd import here and there but it was very impressive to see one man amass so many cars. Row after row of them all beautifully displayed in a couple huge buildings tucked in behind a home in rural Richmond.

Who would of thought China had a thing for American classics. Honestly wished these were sold on Barrett Jackson instead.

but being able to pass inspection is another thing

not sure about else where in china, but in GZ if u have a noticeable scratch on the car, there could be a chance u might not be able to pass annual inspection (in till u fix the problem & no u cant sell the car period)

this is why u dont see alot of regular ppl restoring cars or modding cars road cars in GZ (not including cosmetic mods)

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

OH FUCK YOU OH OH OOOOH~

Maybe they don't...maybe they just want to own everything

This purchase is an investment I'm sure.
