A Look Back at 2004 Hurricane Charley Damage to Car Collection

The following photos of the damage inflicted by 2004’s Hurricane Charley to a vintage car collection in Florida are definitely not for the feint of heart, although we find them mesmerizing for some twisted reason which we are unable to explain. The collection, consisting mostly of vintage Ferrari’s is said to have been owned by Walter Medlin, a real estate developer and convicted tax evader who was apparently keeping the cars hidden away from the government in the secret shed before mother nature came along and decided to expose their whereabouts. Apparently, the IRS had previously confiscated his Ferrari P3 and his P4 in 1990 due to owing $540,000 in back taxes, although we seem to remember reading somewhere that he bought them back before they actually went to auction. Certainly an interesting collection of cars, not to mention character of a personality.

  1. I visited this collection after it moved to its secret location.
    Cars were in same condition but we’re supposed to be restored. I had lots of video of it but not allowed to post publicly
