Auction Block: Government-Seized Illegal Car Collection

Mar 19, 2019

Category: Rides

While most fabled automotive collections are prestigious in nature and owned by one (or many) prolific individuals, Kong Meng Vang’s extensive inventory of imports has become famous in its own interesting way. Whether the vehicles are entirely legal is a different story — but now, over 20 of the technician’s rare sports cars are set to be auctioned off via Apple Auctioneering Co.

Kong Meng Vang was a passionate motorsports proprietor, running a well-known dyno performance shop in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and helping the import automotive scene to prosper in Middle America. He also ran a drug distribution company, resulting in his arrest in 2018 and the subsequent seizure of his elaborate 1990s sports car collection. Although Vang’s intent to distribute over 1,500 pounds of marijuana led him to be charged with over 40 years of imprisonment within the federal system, his unique taste in unregistered (and uninsured) vehicles has proven to be a positive for any would-be buyers who have been in the market for rare eastern imports. Among the 20-vehicle stash, a 1972 Datsun 240Z, 1991 Acura NSX, 1991 Toyota Supra, 1991 Nissan Skyline GTR, 1996 Mazda RX-7, and 2009 Nissan GT-R are the standout pieces — but if you’re interested in taking a closer look, you can head on over to Apple Auctioneering Co’s website.
