60 zaboravljenih oldtimera vrijednih 12 milijuna funti pronađeni na francuskoj farmi

Čak i danas, kada je cijeli svijet mapiran  GPS-om postoje skrivena blaga koja tehnologija ne može otkriti.. Nakon poziva na dražbi, unuci poduzetnika Rogera Baillona otkrili su  da je zbirka od 60 vintage automobila iz 1930-ih do 1950-ih ostavljena na milosti i nemilost hrđi u šupama na farmi  te obitelji u zapadnoj Francuskoj. Zbirka bi  mogla  biti vrijedn 12.000.000  funti ili čak i više na aukciji.

Jedan Talbot koji je pronađen u zbirci prethodno je bio u vlasništvu egipatskog kralja Faruka a jedan  Ferrari  bio je korišten u snimanju filma sa Jane Fondom.

Uz rijetke Maseratije u ovoj zbirci, Baillon je imao namjeru graditi muzej s njegovom zbirkom.

Kako  stvari nisu išle  kako treba  morao je prodati 50 automobila, a ostatak kolekcije je zaboravio.

Kolekcija će se staviti na aukciji u Parizu 6. veljače, 2015.

Svi automobili neprikladni za obnovu će biti prodani za rezervne dijelove.
