Hats off to the Forbes! They have a very nice collection of fine automobiles. I wish each and everyone of us could afford to restore that many old cars

I spent an entire hour pouring over this site, Ray. His cars are gorgeous, and I was dumbfounded with awe.

I really love his '59 retractable, but it is to rich for my blood:
"Six years and +80K later, our child is born. I can't believe the cost but my wife saved every bill and we have proof."

I noticed something that didn't make sense, he said he did all the work on his cars, then he listed every shop that did all the work. I guess if you have that many cars (and that much money), it would be practacle to farm the work out.

He followed his dream and was able to reach it. For that, I must give him a lot of credit.

Today in Detroit, it was in the upper 50's and it rained on and off. But, I did what I enjoy doing most, I spent all day restoring and fabricating. Your man in Canada was showing a '58 Convertible (with the top down) in the midst of snow. Since I don't have a heated garage, I have to work as fast as I can and make use of the warm weather before the snow and real cold weather hits. Thank God, we don't have mosquitos. - Dave

Hi Dave,

I figured you would be thrilled to see these beautifully restored Big Fords! Keep in mind that there are two people involved here. The couple featured in the main part of the website, and the owner of the website, Linden, whose links to the work he has done, is on the left side. It sounds to me like they did a lot of the work themselves, and also farmed a lot of it out that they could not do. In any case, I am thrilled to see there are people out there can have the where withal to recover some of these old classics and bring them back to life. They are things of beauty!

It stated that he worked in oil fields. I think he OWNED the oil fields!
Look at the home besides the cars. He's being ultra modest.
........and where does he house all these cars?
Don't kid yourselves, the man is a multi multi millionaire.
