    Better to keep those death traps hidden away and off the roads. Collect away!

    the last of the old american lover of classic cars who actually lived when they were "new"

    wow so many haters!

    Great collection mate, keep up the good work

  4. What they showed of his collection is like someone collecting modern Malibu's and Taurus's. I'm sure he has more interesting cars but for the most part it's pretty vanilla.

    I dont get collectors who just keep the cars in the garage. Use it, drive it, fix it, go again. Ok, sure, maybe if its worth 20mil, but other than that, just go on

    If has this kind of money he could least buy those climate control bubble capsule for all them.

    Some people collect cars just to look at them, not drive. It's his money, his time, his cars….he can do whatever he pleases with them.

    What is the music used on this video?

  12. He shoulda bought a wash mitt and a bucket

  13. dam and I'm struggling for parking

  14. falchulk says:

    OK, he does not collect for the joy of driving. He does not keep them polished an beautiful…wtf does he want old dusty metal for? This was a waste of my time to watch.

    I'd love to see his tool collection

  23. MitchF150 says:

    I would love to have 12,000 sf of shop! Great collection to fill that space too! Love it. Drive them or not… It's your choice if you have them.. Personally, I'd try to drive them.. But, that's just me and I don't have them so we will never know…

  24. Pedro Torres says:

    So many cars and he doesn't drive them??? That is just stupid.

  26. The anti-Leno.

    That Taxi is awesome. I want one.

  28. There may be something deeper here than car collecting. He seemed to connect his collection with his grandmother and something that happened in 1968, as if it was a kind of therapy. Take it easy on him he's just doing his thing, you do yours.

  29. I understand he collects them, but cars are suppose to be driven. If they aren't driven then their purpose is lost.

  30. I'm the same way. You don't have to drive a car, to understand it's importance or it's value. My dad collects in the same way, but on a smaller scale. If a car is original, it's almost like it stops time. It is a childhood, not something that brings you back to what you think it was.

  31. I would love to see this kind of subject as a series.

  32. At least dust them off and put the tops up. I think he just likes looking at them and not so much tinkering with them as in restoring them because theyre all original and low miles

    I work in Gowanus/Park Slope at an Auto Shop. Where exactly is Lenny located?

  34. What's going on with those bikes at :32? I'm interested in those also.
