Our hobby has lost a true hero.

God speed Steve.


Well said!!! up

Right before Christmas last year, Steven was gracious enough to spend one of his last sunsets with me. It was truly a Stonehenge moment as the two of us drank beer on his balcony, before going out to eat. We watched the sun set precisely at the end of the pier.

I say "Stonehenge moment", because it was the Winter Solstice.

We all knew this day was coming, but it still saddens me greatly that I will no longer hear any new stories. I will cherish the memories of the old ones, though.

Godspeed, Steven

Steve was one of those people who really did make a difference.

Can you imagine the onslaught of poachers trying to get their hands on his stuff?

I really do feel for his family, not just for their loss but also for the challenges they face dealing with his estate.

I am guessing that given Steve's means, passion, organization, and knowledge that his end was near, he has taken care of what will happen with his automotive legacy.

Museum? Liquidation? Who knows? I don't, but I bet the family does.

Wow, I know the name and his collection, of course, but it's really impressive to hear what kind of person he was.
A sad time for sure. Wishing peace to his family.

Oddly enough I was just thinking of him a few weeks ago and wondered how he was. I don't get here as much as I used to to but I've not seen him post anything in quite some time .

Never met him in person ( at least I don't think so )

But I know enough about him to value his opinion in extreme high regards.

The Mopar world has lost a HUGE asset to the hobby.


My he rest in peace and My deepest condolences to his family left behind

Steven loved these cars.

He was a one of the very few so far whose cars had VIN records waiting for him.

In both cases, the records came to me from different sources & one VIN I 'googled' & the other I just knew he owned, he was with it it when I met him for the first time.

Very few people have claimed multiple records that have been sent in from all the various sources, Steven claimed two.

CIP Steven, Collect in Peace. angel

Steven was an outstanding man and a rare human being. I made friends with him here years ago, shortly after he had opened his museum. I loved our conversations. He talked to me like we’d been friends our entire lives. I never made it to San Clemente to shake his hand and this I will always regret. Steven was a graceful guy. He took ugly criticism from jealous guys and advances by cozy opportunists in the hobby with dignity and kept giving back. He was generous. Every person I’ve met who sold Steven memorabilia reported receiving a price that was more than fair with zero dickering. His many contributions documented or featured in Mopar Action Magazine and the preservation of his 1 of 1 cars are an amazing legacy. His “Lunch Pail” restorations are a benchmark that may never again be matched.

For all the unique things in the Juliano collection, Steven himself was the real treasure.

Rest In Peace, Steven. You will be missed.


I’m listening.

Signs and Automobila are selling very strong right now. It wouldn't be the worst idea to maybe sell off a few pieces. Coming from his collection, I assume pieces would deliver a premium. I imagine Barrett Jackson and Mecum were in contact prior. I have no clue what the financial situation is of the family. I've only seen a few pictures and the stuff is amazing, a life time of collecting. I just hope his wishes were made clear to his family and whatever that is, is honored.

I got word of Steve's passing as I was sitting in the Orlando airport on my way home from a great week in Disney with my family. I knew it was coming but still couldn't believe what I was reading. I was devastated and still am. It was one of my greatest wishes that Steve would make it to Carlisle one more time - I wanted to see him again and I really wanted him to be on hand for his induction into the Mopar Hall of Fame. He simply wasn't well enough frown

My brother and I were very fortunate to get a private tour of Steve's collection shortly before he got sick. It was a day I'll never forget! He was an incredible host and turned us loose for HOURS to do whatever we wanted. After drooling over the collection (he has WAY MORE than just the cars - he has more memorabilia than I've ever seen) he bought us lunch and then we hung out at his house on the hill of San Clemente overlooking the Pacific. I would've PAID to see that collection and I was planning to buy HIS lunch but he wouldn't hear of it.

There are lots of great stories about Steve but here's one of my favorites... At Carlisle about 5 years ago, Steve was looking at a Gremlin Survivor in the Car Corral. Yes, an AMC Gremlin. He said he kept looking at the car but wasn't sure about pulling the trigger and paying $10K for a Gremlin. He told me, "I've bought suits that cost more than this car"...and so he bought it. Steve had more money than most of us but he was never obnoxious about it. He was fortunate and he knew it. As someone else noted, he treated everyone with respect.

I still can't believe he's gone. It's going to be very bittersweet to see the RTS cars at MCACN this year. I know I'm going to get emotional seeing the cars without Steve there. But, as others have said, Steve always said that he was just the caretaker. How true...

Yes, a lot of people don't know one of his main passions was for Ford especially the Shelbys.

He did the same thing for us, we all took him out to lunch and he paid for all of us. i just still can't get over his passing.

When we were there, Steve had just taken possession of one of Shelby's original haulers. Steve told us to get on the back of it to take pics and video because it gave a totally different perspective. This was an ORIGINAL Shelby hauler!!! The ramp had been replaced with a flatbed, but still...

Steve was very generous in my opinion. In ways that a lot of people probably never knew.

Steven was a Great person. I lived near him in NY. I had visited him at his house a few times and even when he was not feeling 100% he would always talk cars, wow some of the stories he told. He showed me the cars and parts he had in NY. He was so generous each time I was there he gave me a little gift for my car. Steven you will be missed, never forgotten.
RIP

He will be missed by many. He was pretty friendly online and seem to know a decent amount of info on some cool things. Rest in peace Steven.
