Nov 04, 2008 on VELOCITY at 10:00 PM


From back yards, to barns, to the Internet, vintage cars can surface anywhere, but it takes a lot more than blind luck to find them. Getting access to these vehicles is all about who you know. Invited by a friend in the wholesale business, master car... (more) restorer Wayne Carini travels to a remote avocado field in Southern California where he gets a once-in-a-lifetime chance to inspect a secret collection of vintage cars worth millions. Meanwhile, a collector friend of Wayne's shows off one of the most legendary eBay finds of all time. Listed online as a Devin racer, it turns out the car was actually something much more special. Underneath the shell of the Devin was an extremely rare Ferrari race car. Despite the very public online auction, only the collector saw the clues that helped him guess the vehicle's true origin and purchase the car for only $35,000. Restored, the Ferrari will be worth upwards of $4 million. Back in Connecticut, Wayne generates some auction excitement of his own when he puts a 1961 Maserati 3500 GT Superleggera for sale on eBay.
