Forgotten cars worth a fortune They were left to rot in the trustee’s parking lot

Vehicles confiscated by the state for traffic, public order incidents and foreclosures in Mersin are towed to the Ombudsman’s car parks. While vehicles must be received by their owners after legal proceedings, many vehicles are not taken and left to rot. 650 vehicles and approximately 1,600 motorbikes are waiting to be purchased by the owners of Ata Parking Lot and Trustee Deposu, which is one of Mersin’s 6 fiduciary car parks. It breaks the hearts of those who see vehicles, many of which are now obsolete and stuck in the grass. The market value of the cars in the car park, which looks like scrap on the outside but has a fortune inside, is around 100 million lire. Ahmet Kuş, 55, who has been managing the car park and warehouse for 39 years, and his children, Melih and Mehmet, take care of the vehicles delivered to them by the state.

Noting that there are also very old vehicles in the parking lot, Kuş said: “According to my records, I have vehicles that have not been purchased for 16-17 years. The increase continues day by day, but there is no exit. If there is an exit, we will relax as a place and our state and our nation will relax. I wish there was more exit. “I think selling more of these vehicles will benefit everyone. We are open 24 hours a day. We have no stop. We work here day and night, “he said.
