MacLeod died last summer, and his estate is selling the thousands of things he collected, including albums, guitars, ceramic figurines, commemorative plates, lamps, polyester ruffle-front dress shirts, leather jackets and beaded jumpsuits.
 up for auction are four cars, including MacLeod's pink Cadillac, the replica electric chair that MacLeod built and the ramshackle antebellum home itself, complete with boarded-up windows and questionable plumbing.
