Winzen collection circa 1989 The Winzen Collection (circa 1989). From Tim Keseluk from Fchat: These photos were given to me several years ago. They were from a local attorney charged with selling these cars to settle an estate. I believe that they belonged to Otto Winzen who was the owner of Winzen Research (an aerospace firm that was involved in front-end research early in the space program). From talking with one of Otto's friends he had the habit of seeing a new car he liked and then buying several. The conditions of the sale included: fixed price all or nothing. I heard they went for around $550K. It was a nutty way to sell them. Even if you had the money at the time there were problems just moving and storing all that iron. Today even 10 times that would be a bargain. Probably could have been a great auction. I grew up (in the 60's) down the street from a guy who worked for Winzen. They were developing high altitude balloons. Never knew about the cars then. The story I heard is that he was found dead in the Rolls (engine running).
