Iowa man auctions car collection


LATIMER (KWWL) - A northern Iowa man has decided to put his lifelong collection of old and classic cars up for auction, but he says his car collecting days are far from over.  Jerry Passehl of Latimer started the collection when he was 14 years old. By the time he graduated high school he had 350 cars.  The collection has dwindled to about 125 cars, most of which he auctioned off Saturday.  Passehl says the building the cars are in is full and he hopes someone can do something good with them.  The cars range from the 1920s to the 1970s. Most of them run but need some work.  He says he is interested in the history of cars and their evolution.  Although he's selling much of his collection, he says his search for cars that need saving will continue.
