PORTOLA VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — Collectors from around the world have snapped up more than 100 tanks and other military vehicles amassed by a Silicon Valley engineer.

Jacques Littlefield's collection was sold during a two-day auction in Portola Valley to raise money for the Collins Foundation.

Auctions America, which ran the auction on Friday and Saturday, said Sunday that 119 of the 122 military vehicles were sold, generating $10.24 million in sales. The bidders came from 10 countries and 37 U.S. states.

The foundation plans to use the money to build a military vehicle museum in Stow, Massachusetts.

Littlefield was a Stanford University-trained engineer who collected the vehicles over decades and kept them on his family estate in Silicon Valley. The vehicles were used in conflicts ranging from World War I to the Gulf War.
