Collector's Passions Automobiles

I was not always into collecting ventriloquist figures. As matter of fact I dealt in antiques and fine arts for over thirty years before starting with ventriloquist figures although my very first find was a Dummy Dan (see my bio).

During the decade of the 1980’s I was very involved with collector cars. I bought and sold many Packards, Cadillacs, Thunderbirds and more and a couple vehicles survived in my garages until today. Where the weather today is finally like summer I decided to get them running and take them out for a spin and take a few pictures. You see I have decided that I am going to sell these remaining collector cars as well.

First is a 1980 replica (already an antique) 1936 Auburn Boatail Speedster. It is full size to the original and built on an extended Corvette frame with all corvette drive train. It is a screamer to say the least.




The second is a fabulous 1974 Corvette Convertible. It is all original and has power steering , power brakes, and power windows. It is a 350 / 300 engine and she screams with the standard 4 on the floor. She is an impeccable auto and worthy of any collector or Corvette fan.





If you are interested in these autos just email me.
