That is mind-blowing! Can't wait to watch the car by car tour video. Hopefully #55 is in a 'fancier' home than this.

Not sure why someone with the obvious means of this collector would buy Cobra kit cars and Hemi Cuda clones though? Maybe the longer video will prove me wrong.

You can't fault anyone for having fun.

I envy this collectors ability to have acquired some incredible cars....even if some/most are continuations/recreations/curiosities.

Some of the best collections in the world have been squirrelled away in containers sitting in the desert, stuck in leaky buildings in rainy climates, put in damp areas with tarps over them, left outside to have trees grow up through them, etc. Tom Cotter wouldn't have a business model if they were all properly stored. Who doesn't dream of digging out of some of these conditions?

One of the most incredible collections I've witnessed was Walter's:

That news article only talks negatively of Walter. He is a great person and a real car guy.

Crazy how someone like this Walter can have such a vast collection yet fails to make payments and lose his stuff on probably pennies on the dollar?????

I don't know Walter on a personal level.....he's certainly a car nut. I'm grateful to have seen the cars and spend some time with him. As a collector he pursued and acquired some incredible iron. Walter's cars are real as rain.
