They all ran when parked.

A collection of more than 170 dusty and bird-dropping covered classic cars stored for years in a London warehouse has been revealed and is up for sale.

The nondescript building is among a row of warehouses in North London.

The building is located in an industrial park not far from the Tottenham Hotspur football stadium and the sale being conducted by London Barn Finds.

The agent tells Fox News Autos that a local businessman collected them over the past 10 years as both a hobby and investment, but that the government has decided to demolish the warehouse as part of a redevelopment program, which has forced his hand to sell earlier than expected.

All of the cars were allegedly driven into the warehouse under their own power, but some are being advertised without service histories or complete paperwork.

The list includes a wide variety of mostly British and European makes, from MG to Land Rover to Mercedes-Benz.

Among them are a 1948 MG, a 1957 Mercedes 200 Ponton, a 1973 Porsche 911 and several Volkswagen Microbuses.

An open house was held this past weekend where closed bids were accepted and the agent said that any unsold cars will be offered on Ebay in the coming days.
