Hi

This might be worth someone nearby (Cambridge) going to get a story for the magazine.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lancia-Collection-Barn-Find-Pre-War-Augusta-Aprilia-Ardea-Rare-Italian-Project/114663898484?hash=item1ab2803d74:g:DwoAAOSwMD1gGZxI

I know Martin Johnson - one of the owners - who did some fabulous welding for me, and I saw this hoard a few years ago but was sworn to secrecy. If anyone is interested in doing a story, I can put you in contact with Martin. I am no longer in that part of the world

Cheers
Simon

Wonder if the LMC can be approached to save the cars?

I spoke to the owner Martin last week, and there is interest from what he says but it was at the early stages, people arranging viewing and the like

I remember 3 similar Lancia hoards in the last 30 years, some even bigger than this one.

There were 3 solutions:
1. A consortium of 3 people stepping in, and buying everything, then splitting the cars (many...), and sharing the parts;
2. One buyer taking over 4 cars and a ton of parts, and over 5 years rebuilding everything (best to have deep pockets and a dedicated mechanic);
3. One dealer taking over the whole lot, then trying to sell separate cars with kits of parts - he finished selling to a single buyer - see 2.

The sellers were thus happy (kind of...) and the buyer(s) were taking over the problems /cars.
