Default Bruce Meyer's "Used Cars"...

That´s what I call a dream come true!!! Can you imagine a saturday afternoon having a beer with your closest car-friends in that living room? Or taking a couple of those cars on spin around the block just for kicks.... I'd love to see that in person.

They would have to drag me out of there kicking and screaming. I don't think I would ever leave. Think of all the fun you could have just sitting in those cars making vroom vroom noises and pretending to dive into sharp turns with the tires howling. Fantastic collection.

That's what heaven looks like!!! I really like his 0001 Corbra a lot and I'm kinda smitten over the #2 Cunningham Corvette as well. But as beautiful as those two are, I'm a damn hot rod man and I'd burn both to have the chance to own the Pierson coupe.....and that wall mural (literally in the process of putting up a picture mural in my soon to be delivered daughter room so I can appreciate that very much )

I could get use to seeing the 250 GTO Testa every time I came to work. I'd almost burn the Pierson coupe for that Blasphemy!!!

For all he has done, I would say the Hot Rod world owes Bruce Meyer
a deep debt of graduated. Thanks Bruce and thanks Jive Bomber for
the video.

I wish I was born rich instead of handsome. It would be nice to collect cars like a kid collects HOTWHEELS.

Who said you were handsome?

I have a lot of respect for Bruce Meyer's and the work he did to legitimize the recognition of the historical Hot Rods to claim their place along side the high profile classics at Pebble Beach.

His personal collection ain't to shabby ether,,,

Didn't Bruce buy Larry's 3 window? HRP
