I'm just not of the hip hop generation nor an Obama man. The musician who I was with is a long time friend who is close to the car collecting world ( he has quite a collection himself ). As to the " rambling, crazy-old-man posts" there might be some truth in that. But as long as one person is interested ( and it is true ), I'd rather post about Howard Hughes, Frank Mann, Craig Cullinan, the Hunt Brothers, Rex Cauble, Ron Jeremy, Larry Flynt and other legendary characters than a pair of Selvadge Jeans. I think redcaiman said he reads my historical posts. If no one read them, I won't post them. I could do a blog, but I don't care to. There will probably never be an as large and eclectic car collection in the world assembled by an individual.
I always read your posts. They fascinate me and often prompt me to do further research. I am sure some keen people are going to make a fortune flipping some of those cars.

Sorry to hear about your friend, my condolences.

That collection is amazing. Thanks for taking the time to post so many pictures.

I'm not a Big Timer, so I can't make a cash offer, but I do have a spare organ or two. I wonder if I could arrange a trade for one of those 427 Cobras...

please tell the reverend he's in my top 5 of all-time list.

That's truly a staggering collection.

My father is an amateur collector and would definitely love some of these cars--will be sure and pass these on to him. Vintage cars just have so much more appeal to me for some reason. Here are a few pictures from his garage. These are all his cars, minus the yellow Galaxie, which is mine.

Most interesting is probably the custom Tiger Sunbeam that has a crate motor in it pushing about 375bhp. It still has the original Carroll Shelby dealer plates.

I guess you've never seen Mike Tyson's Ferrari Testarossa convertable.

That Bugatti 57 Atlantic must be the most expensive car in his collection? I saw Ralph Lauren's at the Boston MFA exhibit...think there's only 4 or 5 in the world.

rnoldh, it seems your friend was really into the classics but how about exotics? Any Ferrari, Maserati, Lambo, etc. pictures?

Did Jay Leno die? Also: this belongs on B/S. Let's make the biggest big timer sale on SF history.

I assume the 250 GTO next to the "Bamboo Bomber" is a fake/rebody?

That Hank Williams car is most likely a custom job by Nudie, a Nudie Mobile:

i thought nudie was a tailor? webb pierce ha a similar custom caddy - the interior was studded w/ silver dollars...

* i stand corrected: nudie did customize cars, and he did webb's (pontiac, not caddy)!
