Barry Weiss Car Collection & Net Worth

Barry Weiss Car Collection has got some of the most luxurious rides from popular carmakers such as Rolls-Royce, Bugatti, Tesla, and more.


Barry Weiss has to be the most beloved Storage Wars character. He made his fortune through fruits and vegetables, believe it or not; “’I owned a produce company,’ Barry told AOL in an interview, ‘and we exported and imported, my brother and myself. I did that for years.’” Safe to say he made a couple of bucks prior to his Storage Wars fame. That’s especially evident when scrolling down this list. Weiss is a sucker for vintage cars and bikes. Not only that, but he also loves purchasing unorthodox models you just don’t see every day. As you might expect, these rides have a heck of a resale value. However, in lots of cases, Weiss doesn’t plan on reselling the cars and bikes, unlike he did on Storage Wars. Some of Which, shall be included in the Top 10 cars of his collection.

Barry Weiss Car Collection

10. 2004 Rolls-Royce

Starting with the Rolls in the Barry Weiss Car Collection. Over in Florida, according to Spare Foot, unpaid storage units are an issue that takes place more times than not, according to the president Marc Smith. In this particular case, the unpaid unit was sold for $7,000, a pricier cost. However, on the inside was a stunning Rolls-Royce ride. Now, selling it wasn’t the easiest due to how hard the process might be to actually own the ride. However, it was still a gem most storage unit finders don’t expect to unveil every day. At the very least, with such a find, the buyer was able to pay off the price of the unit.

9. Lincoln-Zephyr

You know a car is pretty darn good when the likes of Drive Mag compare it to a possible Batman-style ride: “If ‘spare cash’ means around $300,000-400,000, then you’re in the right place to take home a car that has Bruce Wayne written all over it.” (Source: Driver Mag) Somehow, Barry snatched up the ride for $55,000 back in 2013–that’s an absolute steal, if you ask us. Barry completely repainted the ride black, but even when it was purple, the car wasn’t all that bad and was quite the attention getter. It looks completely different in black though, and—dare we say—a lot more Batman-suitable these days. The car hit new levels of fame when Hot Wheels recreated it. Believe it or not, it was bought for a quarter of a million back in 1999. Barry paid less than half the price years later. After giving it the black paint job and making some other alterations, the value completely skyrocketed once again. He’s a wise car collector indeed.

8. DeLorean DMC-12

This is a car with a polarizing legacy. Some motor enthusiasts love the futuristic body of the ride; however, others laugh at its poor capabilities when on the road. Although it looks like it’s from the future, it definitely doesn’t drive as such. This had led to the car’s abandonment more times than not. Make a quick Google search on abandoned DeLoreans, and you’ll be astonished at how many were just left out in the cold only to be forgotten about. Turns out, the same thing took place during a storage find on the show, Storage Hunter UK. The couple found a tucked-away DeLorean just sitting there in remarkable condition.

7. Lotus Esprit Submarine

It might seem impossible to top the uniqueness of Barry’s ride that we just mentioned. However, this storage unit find might have the credentials. The insane part is that the buyers paid a mere $100 for the storage locker in Long Island back in 1989. According to Jalopnik, the buyers found a sheet covering that was hiding something massive underneath. Turns out, that massive thing was the James Bond Lotus Esprit Submarine! Talk about hitting the jackpot, huh? The man bought the unit for $100 while the submarine was worth close to $1 million.

6. Tesla Roadster

When we think of finds in a storage unit, we typically associate older items with an expensive value. However, what if we told you that someone found a darn Tesla in an abandoned shipping container? During the episode “Judgment Day “on Storage Hunters, a duo found a beautiful and crisp Tesla roadster just waiting in the unit under a cover. The ride was in mint condition and looked as though it was untouched. The car was apparently an insurance write-off, according to Tesla Motors Club. Talk about hitting the jackpot!

5. 1966 Shelby Mustang

But wait; there’s more. According to the writer of this article, the rare find has a skyrocketing value, perhaps in the six digits. That’s really not a bad find and perhaps another reason to look into storage units a little more aggressively. And who knows? Car enthusiasts might stumble upon such a beauty—if lucky enough, that is.

4. 1940 Ford COE Truck

“For a truck that was purpose-built by Ford to endure a hard laborious life filled with anything but glamorous hauling duties, this space-age sheet-metal monster has endured.” (Source: Hot Rod) The initial purpose for this truck, wayback when, was for labor requirements, believe it or not. These days, it’s quite clear that trucks have upgraded, especially in terms of space on the backend. These days, such a truck is celebrated for its sheer uniqueness as a ride you just don’t see every day. It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Barry decided to dish out a couple of bucks in order to get custody of this old-school car.

3. 1947 Cowboy Cadillac

This might be Barry’s most prized ride of them all. According to Weiss himself, he’ll never consider getting rid of this ride. Seriously, how can you blame the guy? The car not only still runs decades later but is also quite the head turner visually. The Cowboy Cadillac was built back in the late 1940s by designer Frank Derosa, according to Roadkill Customs. He created several custom hot rod rides throughout the years. Like Barry’s other rides, this is a unique model and one you won’t find all that frequently nowadays.

2. 1937 Bugatti 57s

Identified as an obsessive owner, a doctor kept this ride hidden from the public for more than 50 years inside a garage storage unit. The doctor bought the ride back in the 1950s for 895 Euros. You won’t imagine what it sold for years later after his passing. It was put up for auction after it was found tucked away in the storage area. The highest bid for this ride was an absurd $3 million. This from the same ride that had a worth of $895 when it was first purchased.

1. Tim Burton Batmobile

Next comes the Batmobile in the Barry Weiss Car Collection. This isn’t just any Batmobile. This is one of the most beloved Batmobile rides of all time, and it’s arguably the best ever. Now we’re unsure as to whether or not Barry owns the replica of this ride. However, what we do know is that he used this unique Batmobile during an episode of Barry’d Treasure on A&E. He didn’t have the easiest time riding around in the iconic prop car. In fact, when trying to park the ride, Barry caught a little bit of the sidewalk. For those that watched the episode, viewers must’ve gasped at that incident. Thankfully, the ride was just fine. It might be a thing of beauty, but it isn’t the easiest to drive!
