For a few years I had an in between job of driving a recycling truck where I used to live so I got to slowly drive in all the township alleyways & go into a lot of garages to help the elderly people, I was constantly amazed at what some have lying hidden in their homes.
Then years ago there was a Pechens grocery & store complex in Dunbar, Pa. after the owner passed his kids put his fire truck & car collections up for auction, I think they did a few hundred a week & it took 5 or 6 auctions to go thru the collection.

I found this in the archives of the Pittsburgh paper that gives some details on the firetrucks, there were more found later & the cars were being found for weeks. The man had property everywhere, real nice guy that loved Lincolns, they were sitting around his shopping complex & in the basements & back rooms of some of his shopping complex buildings. He saw me looking at an old Zephyr & we got to talking & walking, his business strategy was that he would rather sell 25 items for a penny profit on each than one item for a 25 cent profit. It worked for him he had a one of a kind place that was even written up in the N.Y.Times, you could eat a full meal for around a buck.

Found another link but nothing really gives a final #, a lot were destroyed in a fire after he had passed, he even had his own junk yard full of antique & classic cars.
