I've always thought his cars were overpriced when I'd see his ads in Hemmings, but he sure seems to have some nice stuff.

They always were overpriced...usually double the actual value.

That being said, the '77 NYB in brown does it for me...I had the opportunity to buy one out of Phoenix a couple years ago in the same color combo and really regret it. I noticed the C/Y Body cars all have a reserve on them...banking on hype I suppose.

Toured the collection a couple years ago and the guy has nice cars. About half have a reserve.

He even has the 4 cylinder cars! And the GLH-S is #6. Pretty cool. The GTX is very nice.

I would like to have both the black GLH-S Omni and the Garnet red Shelby Charger, always liked both those cars when I was coming of age back when those cars were
brand new. It's hard to believe the Omni has only 11 miles on it! shock

I would take the black GLH-S too. Cool cars for the time and would smoke a lot of cars from that era.
