This classic car enthusiast/collector set out in the sixties to change his life in the Sunshine state of California. He started his passion with cars at that time by managing several gas stations for the Shell Oil Company. Later the opportunity to purchase his own station and be an owner operator he cashed in all his chips and bought his first station.
He turned his passion into a hobby of collecting classic cars in the early 90's. He attended auctions around the country purchasing many cars he remembered in his childhood as well as from his father’s in the 30's. He was a stickler for buying and maintaining the integrity of STOCK vehicles and prided himself to having OEM cars etc. He grew his collection to well over 30 vehicles in a short period of time and enjoyed buying them and enjoying them. He was very honest and enjoyed fixing them and maintaining them himself as a hobbyist and enthusiast at the same time.
He also had a full time mechanic and maintenance guy that kept them in pristine condition. The cars have never seen the rain since he owned them and have been stored inside his climate controlled warehouse and babied each one like they deserved. He belonged to several clubs like the fabulous T-bird club and Model A club and spent time socializing and telling stories on weekends with young and old alike.
He prided himself on taking care of these beautiful pieces of American history and he enjoyed them tremendously. The vehicles have been bought and or restored in perfect factory condition with as much original equipment that allows for this time period and a quick look at this entire collection you will see the fine examples which could carryover into any automotive museum that could house any one of these fine vehicles.
