Living The Dream
I’m a dyed in the wool, motor oil bleedin’, car guy dedicated to the preservation of transportation.
A poor man’s passion of vintage and classic cars, boats and planes. Unique is what I seek.
From 12 years old through the next 50 years, I have bought and sold well past a thousand cars. My first car was a 1953 Buick 3 hole and my last car—well I will never know. I refurbished cars for 40 years and always dreamed of living in an old gas station…be careful what you wish for! Now I’m restoring the ultimate man cave, and who wouldn’t want their own vintage service station?
A Lifetime Love Affair With the Automobile
From my first car through today I have enjoyed the “hunt” and passing on of automobiles and automobila.
There are few manufacturers I haven’t enjoyed. Although I have often said there were not many redeaming Fiats or Renaults, I would love a Topolino or an R5 Turbo.
I’ve rescued rusted hulks drug out of fields (think Fiat Pininfarina Transformable) and owned “garage kept” low production drivers (think Lotus Elite seriesII).
From Chevy pickups to Mercedes, Jags, and Porsche—I have loved them all. All my loves, like beautiful women, were dates without committments and they’ve always found a new home.
There is one exception … my Jewels.
What’s in Your Barn?
Dedicated to the preservation of transportation.
I buy antique and unique cars, trucks, motorcycles, airplanes, boats, gas station items, bicycles, signs and advertising, and more!
