I gurantee you he won't do anything with these cars other than to let them rust to nothingness. People like that always plan to "restore it someday" and like the CCR song says "Someday...never comes."
There is a guy in my aunt and uncles hometown. He had a nice, clean, straight 56 T-Bird droptop. It needed some work, but was in really good condition. It sat under his carport (not an enclosed garage, a covered carport) with the top down. My family are not Ford people and don't really like the Baby Birds, but it was still a nice car. Dad went over and talked to the guy about it and he was kind of rude, saying it wasn't for sale and he was gonna "fix it up like new" one day. So it sat under the carport, with the top down. Not up even, down. I was 13 or so.
I am now almost 42. Guess where that car is? In Fordyce, Arkansas sitting under a carport with the top still down, full of dust, water, leaves and pine needles, rusted to hell and gone on 4 dry rotted flat tires. But I am sure that guy is gonna fix it up like new any day now.
