With over 400 classic vehicles on display, which ones are you eager to see? Let us know in the comments.
The Mustang Man Builds a Classic Collection
For longtime Carmel Artomobilia supporter Dr. John, collecting cars is just who he is. “I grew up in an age when working on a car is what you did for fun,” he says. “I am a Mustang man from way back.” His garage is filled with plenty of classic ponies, although his favorite models are the Boss Mustangs. “My favorite is the 2011 Shelby GT 500 because it is the last year that Carroll Shelby was involved. He died the next year.” Dr. John’s collection also includes a Shelby GT 350 Gulfstream Aqua convertible once owned by Shelby. Only 194 of these cars rolled off the line in 1969, which makes it a very rare addition.
Smokey and the Bandit Fan
Growing up in the 70s, Dr. John has an affinity for black and gold Trans Ams. “I missed the muscle car era,” he says. “I am a Smokey and the Bandit fan. I collect the Special Edition models, which have slightly different eagles on the hood.”
Sharing His Collection with Lovers of Classic Cars
Having enthusiastic collectors like Dr. John involved is the reason why the Carmel Artomobilia continues to grow year to year. He can always be counted on to bring some amazing cars to the event. His passion for classic cars shows in the depth of his collection. From exotics to Mustangs, Dr. John proves variety is the spice of life.
