Carl remembers what started it all... his love of cars and this collection. It was in August 1945 he was at Old Broadaxe Boy Scout Camp in Nemo, SD and it was parents visiting day. A Homestake (gold) Mining company executive drove up in a 1946 Buick Convertible. It was the most beautiful thing in the world. Spectacular! Blue with maroon leather interior. When Carl graduated from high school he had a 1948 Buick Roadmaster that was maroon in color. A Dream Realized!
