Florida Man's Multi-Million Dollar Car Collection is in a Flea Market

This is one of the stranger things I've seen.

I saw that on Chris Harris' show Driven. Pretty insane that he keeps them in the open.

The display areas look new. When I saw it a few years ago, the cars looked like they were just scattered around the flea market without barriers around them. The 275 Competicione is indeed a rare breast.

Leaving cars out in the open with little between the them and the public. People are stupid and haters gonna hate.

Especially ballsy with the kind of people flea markets attract.

Crazy. I've lived in Florida all my life (almost 30 years) and I've never heard of him, the "Swap Shop", or this collection. Very impressive. Next time I'm in Lauderdale, I'll check it out. Jax is just a little too far to just go have a look

Biggest Flea Market I've ever seen. Plus it's in the middle of a metropolitan area, not out in the middle of the sticks.
Has 10 active drive in movie screens on site. 80 Acres and close to 1,000 permanent vendors.

He used to show porn movies in the drive-in theaters. Once that was no longer acceptable, he probably got into the porn business too. Just speculation.
His wild temper and unpredictability might point to him doing hard drugs and selling them too, or at least financing it. But I doubt he would live to 84 and evade the law if he were too into that.
