Heaven on Earth.
I’m sorry,,,but Mark wins the contest .
The other guy has a truly immaculate collection,,,,,I have never seen so many perfect cars in one place before,,,they look just like new !
It would definitely take a dedication to the 32 to do anything on that level,,,,,and a tremendous sum of money,,,,those cars are gorgeous .
However,,,,,,Mark has a collection of everything,,,,,machines that I have never heard of in some cases . Although none of his are stock,,,or factory original,,,,,they are a tremendous example of what use to be in that time period .
I guess it is comparing apples to oranges,,,,,,both are worthy of equal praise .
The winner is Mark,,,at least in this instance .
And besides,,,,,,he’s on the Hamb,,,,,it’s a hot rod / custom site .
Hey guys! Read my first post, this time carefully. I never said the '32 collection was better, I said it was a "close second". My point is that there are some fantastic collections in cold, frigid Minnesota.
Yes. I remember seeing sixties rod magazines with regular features on drag boats.
after several complaints I removed the pictures of the boat
It was nice while it lasted.
Thank you once again for this thread and all your cool pictures.
It will do nicely to show my wife next time she tells me I have too much stuff lol.
I have had couples here, when we entered the house and she saw cars inside and turned to her husband and said "don't you get any ideas"
Sad to see that people thought they had to whine about the drag boat. Drag boats are just hot rods on the water and in the Seattle area in the 60's you quite often saw one being towed by an equally hot car and often as not a 62 or Earler Corvette.
What he said^^^^^^
Mark doesn't live in a house. He lives in a museum. ........Don.
You can't get the sound of the V-drive gearbox out of your system.
I live about quarter mile from a lake and can tell the difference when a performance outboard, jet or V-drive winds up.
The V-drive gives me chills
I don't get this, there are several "items" that are later than 64-5 HAMB era in your collection in the pics.
The thread is pulling your "collection" out.
There is even a thread started by Ryan that has drag boats/ marine hot rods or whatever it's called.
Oh well, my opinion
He's definitely a '60s person... LOL. The Golden Age of Customs IMO, and he's got some outstanding examples. And he likes them with clean styling (not including his Roth stuff; that's in a class by itself !), no overdone goopmobiles here. If he could promote the Jade Idol, Matador, Adonis, and Silhouette into his collection, he'd have the market about cornered...
Money has no value unless it's spent, it's obvious that Mark has spent his money very wisely!
Some people just got it made! Do you still have this one?
Unreal collection, good on ya.
Ya know, jeez louise... all of the stuff was taken out of the building and pictures were taken and shared. I looked at each picture about ten times and each time I noticed something more that I missed. The lawn mower, the magazines, the art on the walls, and so on. All of that eye candy that was so cool and yet some people looked and complained about one item (the boat) out of all the neat stuff on display. Jesus, get a life.
sold the Custom auto parts dragster about 5 or so years ago.....
I need you to move in next door.
That 57 Zinger is the coolest thing outside of the cars ! I love that thing.
If I moved everything out of my shop all I'd get would be a citation for an illegal junkyard. Cool stuff
here is a thread about that car
That is awesome. I didn't know the history of the car. I just remember it and always thought it was one of those zingers. Cool to learn about it.
Wow! Featured thread!!
I just got "a look" from Mrs Highlander while sharing. She liked the lawn mower...
And why is this pictured? Just sayin, man!
deleted it, sorry
wow beautiful collection. My neighbors just have cars on blocks in their driveways!
I’ll trade you my cleaning vs. Yours !!!!
Lucky duck, even your chores are cool !
