Nearly 150 collector vehicles — including a Pontiac Trans Am formerly owned by actor Burt Reynolds and a variety of American muscle cars, including three Plymouth Superbirds — are being offered at an online auction that ends October 26. The vehicles were seized by the U.S. Marshals Service from the founders of DC Solar.
According to various reports, DC Solar was founded by Jeff and Paulette Carpoff to produce mobile solar-power generators and raised $800 million from various investors. But the Carpoffs used much of that money to enjoy a luxury lifestyle which included sponsoring a NASCAR team, ownership of a minor league baseball team and a performance by entertainer Pitbull at their Christmas party.
The sale of the 149 vehicles is being conducted by Apple Auctioneering, a Woodland, California, company that specializes in seized asset management and government liquidation auctions.
