I sold him the Volkyland guy the 1966 Type 34 years ago.

That car is super nice and low mileage.

I don't know about the other cars.

Not exactly -- it's the Volkyland collection, which Randy is brokering.

The thread title made me think Randy was selling his personal collection. Wink

Yes...not MY collection (but boy I wish!)

I am assisting with the sale of it all though. I went down last week and spent a couple days with the whole collection inspecting and photographing with a helper. I hope to post all the detailed pics of each car this next week.

A shame to see the end of such an amazing stash, but it will also be wonderful to see them all find new homes with enthusiasts around the world.

Some nice cars and reasonable prices. I’m sure there are already tons of emails coming through on a few of the cars. I may have to take a peak at my wallet and make some inquiries.

I am having a family emergency and will be heading to Puerto Rico tonight. Always wanted to go check out that museum! Hopefully they are still “open to the public” and I’ll be able to visit it. Confused

Museums are dying from lack of attendance everywhere; many cannot cover their operating costs from admission fees alone.

Asking a millennial to go to a museum is like forcing a baby boomer to sit through reruns of Lawrence Welk or a Bing Crosby marathon. It isn't going to happen...

I heard A rumor that a large entertainment company is buying a chunk of the collection. Can anyone confirm this rumor?

I was in Puerto Rico this past winter, they have been closed for a while. It was one hell of a bummer, I was really looking forward to see the collection.

FWIW, be glad the replicas are being represented as such.

I've seen people saying they own real war-time vehicles in the past that are clearly replicas.
