Richard Rawlings presents another captivating episode of the Wheels N’ Deals video series, taking us to a remote location in California. There, Mark, the current owner, has a remarkable themed garage housing a collection of 17 rare vehicles that he has decided to part with.

Originally belonging to Mark's father, these classic cars now await new owners, as Mark has chosen to sell them rather than let them deteriorate over time. Among the many remarkable finds, Richard's attention is immediately captured by a 1919 fire truck from the White Motor Company. Sitting nearby is a 1915 Willys Overland, complete with its original owner's manual, offering a glimpse into automotive history.

The collection also features some newer models, including a 1979 450 SL that will surely entice Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts. However, Richard's focus turns to a 1965 Ford Mustang, a perfect candidate for a thrilling restoration project. Additionally, there's a 1966 Mustang 289 Coupe in relatively better condition, holding its own appeal.

Richard's introduction to the owner's first Ford Model A, a car that holds sentimental value as it was used by his children during their early driving days, adds another layer of significance to the collection. Among the remarkable vehicles surrounding them is a highly sought-after 1930 Ford Woody Wagon with sliding windows, boasting exceptional rarity. As Richard takes in the assortment of timeless automobiles, he also encounters an extensive display of collectible automotive memorabilia, a treasure trove that would require years to fully appraise.

When it comes to determining the value of this extraordinary classic car collection, Richard finds himself facing a challenge. Mark, the owner, not only intends to sell the cars but the entire 15-acre property as well. This means that Richard would need to act swiftly to remove the vehicles. However, given the rural location and the associated costs of relocating them from California, the logistical and financial considerations become significant factors.

Richard extends an initial offer of $75,000 for the vintage American car collection, but Mark holds out for a higher price. While they don't reach an agreement in this particular video, viewers are left eagerly anticipating future episodes to discover whether the two parties can find common ground and strike a deal that satisfies both Richard and Mark.
