so one of my previous...ugh...ventures was buying abandoned cars at auctions. this one had a finnish registration and was parked at stuttgart airport for 5 years. when it was impounded the accrued parking fees were at around 10000€. bought for around 250€. not running, busted locks, seized brakes, the usual. no paperwork (obviously). fixed it up, got german paperwork, sold to some guy in dresden, made rent for half a year.
