220 Exotic Cars to be Auctioned in January

General Lee Dukes of HazzardIn the market for a marked down exotic car?  Federal authorities are prepping to auction off quite an impressive collection of luxury cars formerly belonging to Jeffrey L. Mowen, who was indicted in a multi-million dollar fraud scheme.  All of the exotic cars are expected to sell on the auction block January 7th, 2010 at Salt Lake, Utah.

The luxury vehicles are being stored in a secret location, 220 in total, including a replica of the famous “General Lee” from “Dukes of Hazzard”, a DeLorean, muscle cars, vintage cars, Porsches, Bentleys, Mercedes, BMWs, motorcycles and rare cars from the early 20th century.  We conclude that Mr. Mowen had exquisite taste in exotic cars, even if he wasn’t a smooth criminal (one for the late Michael Jackson folks).

Because it is costing the U.S. Marshall’s Service a staggering $20,000 a month just to store the collection of exotic cars, the federal judge has granted permission for the cars to be sold even before the case goes to trial.  There is already interest from exotic car collectors worldwide.
