U.S. Marshals Auctioning 149 Vehicles Seized From Defunct DC Solar Company

The U.S. Marshals Service is auctioning off no less than 149 vehicles from a federal civil case involving the owners of the defunct DC Solar company in California.

DC Solar used to be a supplier of mobile solar power generators and its owners used much of the $800 million they raised to fund extravagant lifestyles. Authorities believe the entire thing was essentially a Ponzi scheme and raided and seized assets from the home of owners Jeff and Paulette Carpoff in December 2018. Now their cars are up for sale.

Included among the vast array of vehicles being auctioned off by Apple Towing Co. are dozens of classic American muscle cars, clearly the types of vehicle the fraudsters enjoyed the most. No less than 11 (!) are Plymouth Road Runners, of which three are the desirable Superbird models. In case that isn’t enough to whet the appetite of muscle car enthusiasts, the collection also includes seven Ford Mustangs, with four of them being Eleanor replicas.

Also included in the auction are no fewer than nine Dodge Challengers including a 2018 SRT Demon. There’s also over a dozen Chevrolet Camaros, five Chevrolet Volts, a handful of classic Fiat 500s, 11 Ram pickup trucks, two Tesla Model Ss, a Jaguar XKR-S, a Maserati GranTurismo, a Bentley Continental GT V8 S and four AM General Hummers.

Buying a car at an auction like this is a superb way to get a vehicle for an relatively low price. Online pre-bidding kicked off last Friday and the live auction will be held at Apple Towing Co. on Saturday 26 October. Interested buyers can preview the cars in person on October 24 and 25.

    Wow. I can’t afford any of this.

    • THERE ARE A FEW AFFORDABLE CARS ON THE SITE. THERE’S A NICE ’67 CHRYSLER 300 FOR $2625, AMONG OTHERS. (SHHH DON’T TELL CRAIG)

      • RDS Alphard

        ’67 Chrysler 300 only worth that much?

        • I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT A BIT MORE BUT THERE’S STILL TIME, THE PRICE MAY GO UP.

    • i dunno that dirtbike can’t be to much.

  • MAYBE A CON OTHER THAN SOLAR WOULD HAVE ATTRACTED LESS ATTENTION GIVEN THEIR PENCHANT FOR GAS GUZZLERS.

    Thanks Mr. Obama for giving your buddies $2.2 billion of our tax money. Seems this particular clean energy CEO friend of yours decided the cash would be better spent on ICE collector cars. Funny how the spin is all about drugs now.

  • Mr. EP9

    Well, there are a lot of nice cars all the same.
