Unfortunate Collector’s Reward: To Sell Off What He Has Collected


What could be the best reward for having amassed a big collection of things you passionately like? One may thought of being featured in Ripley’s Believe it or  Not or perhaps being awarded by Guinness Book of World Records as the best reward for the labor and hardships just to get the best collection. But to Ron Dauzet it was a different story, instead of getting the help and support of the local government to pursue his passion and desires, he was instead being asked to clean the eyesores, the blight of the community otherwise the government will be forced to take out the collection on his behalf. He is from Ann Arbor Michigan and they have local ordinance which prohibits the storage of unlicensed cars outdoors or even within the premises of the owner. Unlicensed cars shall not be parked or stored in any recreation-conservation, agriculture, residential, office, or RTM zoning district other than in completely enclosed buildings.

The government ordered Ron to get rid of at least 20 cars a month – a number which he believes is too  high for him to comply. He tried to asked to lower down the quota from 25, which was previously ordered, to 15 but the government only offered halfway. He felt that 20 a month is too much anybody could handle. He was able to comply at first in June and July but he was unable to do in August of 2017.

He started collecting both rare and common cars starting at the age of 21. His collection includes BMWs, Mercedes-Benzes, Volkswagens, MGs, Jeeps, Porsches and a lot more brands.
