Austrian Collector Auctions Fleet of Japanese Cars

rolandduringer

What surprises us more than an Austrian actor auctioning off his collection of Japanese cars, is the fact that there was an Austrian actor with a collection of Japanese cars to begin with.

We aren’t familiar with Roland Düringer but after seeing his car collection, we wish we were. Apparently he’s quite the comedic celebrity in his homeland, and a motorsport enthusiast as well. His stable includes an enviable herd of J-tin, including an S60 Crown, Corollas from ’75 and ’79, a Celica liftback, Mitsubishi Sapporo and a Honda S800 Coupe. He also has newer fare like a Toyota Will VI, Nissan Cube and Nissan Figaro.

So why is Düringer selling off his cars? Well, it’s for a good cause – to help a young man recently paralyzed in a moped accident so he can get his car modified to accommodate his handicap. Hats off to you, Mr. Düringer!

Thanks to Toyotageek and OJC for the tip!

    Is there an invisible Corolla somewhere? That yellow 3-door liftback is a Corona . . .

    Thanks,

    Wow! That’s quite an amazing thing for him to do! Selling off your collection would not be an easy thing to do, but shows what a good person he is to do something like this for somebody!
