U.S. Marshals To Auction Huge Seized Car Collection In Salt Lake City

Follow Nelson

Usually the best car auctions are held in Scottsdale or Las Vegas with names like Mecum and Barrett-Jackson behind them. But the auction of this collection of 240 classic and collector cars will be sold in Salt Lake City, by the firm of Erkelens & Olson.

The cars were seized by the U.S. Marshals from an unnamed person indicted for running a Ponzi scheme. Previously scattered throughout Utah, the cars are now gathered into one place, and it's quite an odd assortment to see together.

The cars range from a twin-turbo Acura NSX to the obligatory De Lorean plus various qualities of fiberglass kit car replicas--even a hideous bright orange fiberglass Lamborghini kit on a Fiero chassis. But there are a few winners among the group, including a 1967 Camaro SS, a well-kept Plymouth Barracuda, a pair of De Tomasos, many classic American cars and trucks and even a 1991 Nissan Figaro, for those that like quirky little right-hand-drive cars.

Rat rods, replicas, and the odd Bentley Turbo R round out most of the rest of the fleet. If you've got a hankering to get yourself some con-artist cruisers, though, this seems like a great opportunity. The auction will be held January 7 in Woodscross, Utah. You can see the whole fleet at the link to the auction site below.
