    This has been going for a few years now. The collection was created by a solid Citroen enthusiast in Colorado. The whole story may have been chronicled here on AF a month or so ago.
    There are a lot of savable cars in that mess (for lack of a better adjective). I'm in no mood to get involved due to geography and unrealistic expectations on the part of the market: I do not want to be dragged into it. I have physical limitations now that nearly preclude me from managing my own mess.

    But goodness gracious. That's one hell of an interesting situation. I wish them luck and good fortune.

    I've BEEN to Colorado Springs. Bugger. Daffyduck is right too. Apart from anything else, it is a long way east from him.

    Colorado Springs. Good grief.... Who'd have thought it. You can only wonder whether there are any more stashes.

    There are a few containing 15-20 cars. One is in the mountains above Sacramento, California. They guy working that one is heavy into Porsche 911: he says the owner is adamant that the cars are worth extraordinary money. Typical.

    There is a pretty good collection in suburban Los Angeles: it's private. There is another one down south: also private. I have been warned that a third one is coming. No need to go into the wilds of the USA yet.

    As to the Colorado collection: great cars are worth extraordinary money in some cases. Parts cars and restoration candidates are worth whatever the market will bear. Very few people are willing to pay the freight on cars like that.

    There's a fellow not far from you who could probably help with shipping cars or part cuts to Oz. He doesn't run around but if an item can be delivered to his warehouse packing and sea freight to Melbourne is straightforward.
