Collectors Never Forget Their First Automotive Loves
Classic car enthusiast John knows exactly when the car collecting bug bites. He is eight years old, sitting in the back of a 1914 Saxon stored in a rural Ohio barn. It is here his love of cars is born. After college, he tries to buy his first automotive love. Sadly, it is gone … yet years later, it comes up for auction. “I had the agent ask the seller if anything was missing. He said the car did not have an engine badge,” John laughs. “That is because I took it when I was eight!” Both the car and the metal engine badge are now in his possession. He wholeheartedly admits his passion for collecting is incurable.
