Petrol heads can now get their hands on a unique buy – a five-acre property that comes with more than 340 vintage cars.


Michael Hall, decided to put up the bizarre listing with Century 21 Desert Hills Realty, after realising his car collecting hobby had gotten out of control.

The five-acre property is in Tappen in British Columbia, Canada and is on the market for $1.45million (£1.16m).

It comes complete with a two-bedroom renovated home, a restoration shop, a steel outbuilding and more than 340 vintage cars ready to be restored.

The huge collection features a 1941 three window Dodge business coupe and even a DeLorean as well as hundreds of car parts.


Michael started collecting cars 40 years ago while he was living in Kamloops but eventually the collection got so big he had to move to the Tappen farm for more room.

And after years of nagging from his wife, Michael, who admits he used to buy up to three cars a day, has decided to sell the lot.


Hudson Purba, owner of Century 21 Desert Hills Realty, said in his 11 years as an estate agent he had never seen anything like it.

He added: “It’s not just purchasing the cars, land and buildings. It is about a lifetime opportunity to spend time doing what people like – restoring vintage cars and living in one of the most beautiful parts of British Columbia.

“That value is more than the asking price.”
