Lucky Auction Bidder Makes Classic Find at Self Storage Auction
Pat Jones happens to be one of the lucky ones. He was in attendance at a recent lien auction at Pond Springs Storage in the Austin, Texas, area. The general perception was that there was nothing but a bunch of scrap metal underneath a tarp in one unit. He put in a bid, no one else did, and the unit was his.
Upon a closer look he realized he had so much more than just some scrap metal. It was a ’59 Cadillac Coupe.
“It appears the previous owner was using the storage as a second garage and restoring the car in the storage unit. He had gotten so far as to have rechromed and restored over half the parts. It is quite a mystery how and why this car arrived here in pieces.”
For $51 he got a car worth $50,000.
