    Exclamation 'Blood Muscle' auction to sell impressive collection of ill-

    The old saying goes that if you can't do the time, don't do the crime. But being a criminal can involve more than just taking a trip to the big house; it can also mean losing possessions purchased from any ill-gotten gains. Still, one man's loss is another's gain, and if you're in Lodi, NJ, on September 12, you stand the chance to buy some of the ultimate muscle cars from the US Marshals in what is being gruesomely nicknamed the Blood Muscle auction.

    The grisly moniker was earned because all of the vehicles belonged to the president of a blood testing company who is facing prison time for alleged bribery, according to Hemmings. After all, they are muscle cars bought with actual blood money. The seven-vehicle collection includes some of the ultimate muscle cars ever made, and the original buyer clearly had an eye for rarity.

    This cornucopia of V8 power includes a teal 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429, a 1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang, an orange 1970 Plymouth Superbird, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS convertible and perhaps most prized of all - a trio of 1969 Yenko Chevys with a Chevelle, Nova and Camaro all represented. From the included photos, all of them look to be in fantastic condition.

    A.J Willner Auctions, which is coordinating the sale, has authenticating documents for all seven vehicles on its website. "This is a live auction, all bidders will need to attend and bid in person with the required $10,000 cashier's check as a deposit on them," the company says about the event. If you can get past how the cars were purchased, there could be some bargains here.'Blood Muscle' auction to sell impressive collection of ill-begotten classic cars originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 30 Jul 2014 09:31:00 EST.

    this story reminds me of when I was a kid. I knew this guy back when I was 16 that I talked to all the time. He owned a trucking company and had a shop in town. I went in his shop one time and it was wall to wall old muscle cars. He had maybe 15-20 old cars that were in mint condition. I never knew that about him and if you saw the shop and how he lived you'd never guess he would have a collection like that. A couple years later I moved away and shortly after that my mom told me they busted him trafficking cocaine. That's where all of his money came from. The govt. seized all of his property including those cars.
