    This guy was running his ponzi scheme in my hometown of Indianapolis, and I pretty much watched this thing unfold firsthand. I knew him at one point through mutual friends. Guy gave new meaning to the words thief and Sleazeball LOL. Anybody on here ever meet him or end up with his bankruptcy auction cars? I saw somebody picked up the black Stradale. I can still remember when he got that car.

    I remember that episode. hadn't heard of him before then, thankfully I guess :)

    he had a really eclectic but high quality collection. IIRC a Duesenberg, Cord, some exotics, hot rods etc.

    They were mostly leased. I was in that garage once back in 2006ish. I think I have a picture inside of that phantom and a few others that I haven't looked at in ages. There was a 360 Stradale. Vintage cars were on top modern cars on bottom. And almost ALL of the modern cars were black. A friend of mine worked in financial auditing for a firm out of college. The leader in charge would drive him to company headquarters and tell him, "whenever you see a see of nice black cars in the parking lot, the chance of financial fraud going on inside skyrockets and is almost guaranteed." He's bought nothing but white cars since LOL.

    This is the only one I could find taken on my crappy 2006 camera phone.

    Interesting, did anything scream "fraud" back in 2006?
