A field full of abandoned, old Ferraris is not a common sight. But here are photos of a bunch of them sitting out in the elements. Silodrome originally found and published a story about these lonely looking Ferraris. According to the post, there's a Testarossa, a 308 Quattrovalvole, at least two 328s, at least three 348s and an unestablished number of Mondials.

The owner (name unknown) was an attorney who acquired 13 Ferraris over the course of his successful career. Around 2011 or 2012 he was diagnosed with a serious illness, and he paid to have the cars put into a friend's secure warehouse. Unfortunately, he ended up missing some payments as his condition worsened, and the cars were removed from the warehouse. Their new storage spot? The field you see photographed here.

Apparently, the Ferraris would remain in the field for nearly a decade until the family was able to take possession of them. No explanation was provided as to why they were unable to grab them sooner, but the article alludes to "legal proceedings" holding them up.

The family reportedly made a deal to sell nine of the Ferraris to a dealer, so they could be restored and sold to new owners. Interior photos of these Ferraris are a bit of a shock. Time sitting in a field hasn't served them well, but at least some folks are going to give them the care a classic Ferrari deserves now.

Hagerty Unearths The Ultimate Classic Car Barn Find.
There are barn finds, and then there’s this. Down an unmarked, unpaved road in America lurks a collection of classic vehicles the likes of which you’ve never seen before. Meet Billy Eubanks. He’s spent 50 years collecting an incredible number of vehicles, but not for financial benefit. Instead, he's gradually built up a throng of iconic machines because of an automotive obsession. The cars in storage remain seriously impressive. When Hagerty's Barn Find Hunter Tom Cotter recently paid the collection a visit, even his jaw had to be picked up off the floor.
