Lenny Shiller owns nearly 70 old cars, all of them original and low-mileage, and all of them hidden away somewhere in Brooklyn.

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

    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

    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.

    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 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…

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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
