There'* a TON of money to be had there. If someone buys that, I want whats in this picture. It'* rare, and I thought only was on TV Land, but I guess I'm wrong!!!

Oh, and my HS buddy wants the Challenger grill. He could use a spare.

It would take so long to go through all that and catalog it. Most of the cars do not have titles so they would have to be parted out. It really isn't worth it as an investor because of the amount of time and resources that it would take to sort all that crap out.

They've been trying to sell that on ebay for about 5 years now.

He'll sit on it till he dies then his kids will sell it off for a fraction of the cost.

Depends on what the states rules and regs are. Some states allow re-titling so long as a bill-of-sale is produced, and no liens show up when the VIN is run. Another way to get a title is through "abandoned vehicle" clauses, which releases any lien on the vehicle in question and gives it a new title.

In this case, titling those cars would be easy enough. They came with the property, meaning the new owner of the property has newly acquired "abandoned" vehicles on it.

Yes but it would still take a team of 10-20 people 5 - 10 years to go through everything...

And like Hans said 500,000 maybe.
