    9 of the 11 cars have been relocated and the estate has been settled. It was a sad situation for the family and the cars but hopefully they will be off to new homes and restoration or the good parts will be used to fix some cars that need some help.
    Here are the 9 that we were able to take.

    None of them have been sold yet. The family is open to offers but has yet to give me a number of what they would like to get so I am in a stalemate situation with some interested parties. All are for sale individually or as a package. As soon as I have more info from the family I will list them.

    I thought so too, except that it's short a few thousand miles.

    Can someone fill me in on this story? I lived in Lakeway for 8 years before moving to Colorado and haven't heard about it. Thanks.

    The BHCC ad initially threw me off as well. However, if you look at the pics, the odometer on the BHCC car shows 41,847 as well...

    Sorry I did not see this until today. All the cars were picked up by BHCC and are for sale there. All but the Testarossa showed up on the site.

    back in 2015 there was a craigslist post of several ferraris for sale in Lakeway. The cars were in a field off Hudson's Bend Rd.
    Some members here went to look at the cars and shortly after, the ad disappeared. nothing happens for two years ,and in 2017 I was contacted by a lawyer representing the deceased owner of the cars and was asked to help due some due diligence for them. Finally this past summer, the estate was settled and we were able to drag 9 of the 11 cars out of the field and sell them.
    Some of the cars were in perfectly good and drivable condition when they were moved to the field. The yellow 348 Spider had only been driven about 300 miles from the time the owner purchased the car and it was left in the field.

    It was a sad deal for the family. The owner was taken advantage of and in the mean time, he passed away and the cars just sat there being neglected.
