Both are listed as sold. Just wondering if someone on here bought them. Certainly would be great additions to any collection.

I wouldn't say fire sale, I'd say that there are just some damn good prices on some very special cars.

We sold 3 of the 6 in just 21 hours.

The 1952 Smoothgate is available as of right now.

Thanks

When I see the selling of a collection like this I worry about the health of the owner. Hopefully Gene is just taking a step back from his collecting.

I'm surprised all six didn't sell on the first day. Great prices on all of them.

Thanks for the update Brendan. Glad to hear that it's going well. Hope Gene is ok. Some special cars there. There will be happy people.

Thanks, Gene is fine, he's on vacation in sunny Florida at the moment!

As of tonight, the 1952 Smoothgate is spoken for. Had a TON of inquiries on it and a load of guys will be disappointed that they didn't get it together fast enough to land it.

IG and Facebook. The cars at these prices don't need fancy samba ads, as most of the big players follow Brendan. I was drooling over all of the cars listed.

Hello all, Gene here I just saw this thread and want to say that all is well. There comes a time when you have to let some possessions go. I am privileged to have owned some wonderful volkswagens over the years. When I decided to sell these cars I wanted them going to the right owners. I chose to price them so they would move fast and appeal to guys who were familiar with them. Fast easy sales is what I told Brendan and that is what happened. I want to thank the guys who bought them and made the sales painless. I still have some awesome cars and will keep an eye out for the next great one. Peace!
