A collection of dusty and rusty vehicles found

A collection of dusty and rusty vehicles found near Poitiers, France is estimated to be worth more than $18 million -- a true treasure trove of classic cars featuring Bugattis, Maseratis and more.

This could be the dream of every car-collector and armchair car-collector -- to find a treasure trove of 60 antique and classic cars that haven't been on the road in at least 50 years.

This find in France by Artcurial Motorcars includes model names like Bugatti, Hispano-Suiza, Talbot-Lago, Panhard-Levassor, Maserati, Ferrari, Delahaye, Delage.

The cars, known as the Baillon Collection, were found tucked away on a property near the town of Poitiers, a little over 200 miles southwest of Paris.

The reported value of the cars is $18 million. Only time will tell, they are being dusted off and will go at auction on Feb. 6, 2015 in Paris. Here are the cars, and their story.
