An Alpina B10 Bi-Turbo from 1989, a white 'Vanishing Point' Dodge Challenger and perhaps a Mercedes-Benz W124 station wagon for daily use.
Many car enthusiasts have a drømmegarage stored somewhere in the back of your mind, that you can close your eyes and open the gate to on a rainy day. But what do you do really, if the dream one day come true, and the garage is full?
a retired college teacher and bilsamler from Missouri, the UNITED states, the answer was clear: Swap the whole shebang for a sporty Mazda MX-5 from 2016 and with low mileage.
His bilsamling consisted, according to The Drive of the five copies of the rare first generation Toyota MR 2 coupe - one from each year the car was produced.
The five cars built between 1985 and 1989, all but one held completely original. The latest has even had the same owner in its 29-year life and only traveled more than 45,000 kilometers in the period, while another has been used as udstillingsbil.
the Story goes not to whether the collection was enough to finance the newer Mazda, or if there were more money on the table. The used Mazda MX-5 models from 2016 is between 100,000 and 200,000 dollars on the us sales site Autotrader, and much to suggest that the five cars has been plenty worth it to reach the price.
the Cars are in any case put up for sale at the dealer for a total of 223.600 crowns. Or that is to say, it was the. The retailer's Facebook-postings on the bytehandlen, according to The Drive so spread out, that the dealer subsequently been kimet down from customers all over the UNITED states.

Lookup has at the time of writing 368 comments and 792 shares, and the commentary track is filled with frustrated customers that could not reach to buy the car they have picked out.
According to The Drive, there is now only the oldest and unoriginal MR 2 back, but it is in turn also the cheapest to approximately 23.800 crowns.
During the lookup promises the dealer, Ben Brotherton, also a little of the veil, why the retired college teacher decided to sell all five cars at a time. More wonder, namely why the collector has not attempted to sell them a for a for a better price.
- It mentioned I actually for him. But he said that he would just with them in one fell swoop. He didn't want to drag it out and possibly get to hang on to one or two of them, writes Ben Brotherton in the thread.
With the purchase of the Mazda's connect the collector to a new group of enthusiasts. The MX-5 is Mazda's attempt at a two-seater sports car, and since the model first saw light of day in 1989 was in many ways a response to the Toyota MR 2. Therefore, there is also an offended Toyota-fan or two in the commentary track on Facebook.
- What never he these (cars, red.) in order to finance? Just need the full story, so the whole MR 2's enthusiast community can finish our forbandelsesritual over him and his family, writes and adds:
- Not, to be quite honest I'm glad that they can be redistributing to people who will take care of them.
