This is what happened to the heirs of Harold LeMay, the biggest collector of automobiles of the United States of America, and probably of the world.
Starting from scratch, Harold LeMay fulfilled the American dream, by creating his own business connected to rubbish and waste, where he created a fortune. And for years, he bought cars, his passion, without stopping, working or in vacation. Wherever he went he would find a car and buy it immediately. He considered himself more than a collector, a savior of automobiles, as he would find them abandoned and rescue them, taking them home so that they could be restored and preserved. It was this way for decades, until his death, at age 81, when his collection already had about 3,000 cars. But, now what to do with them? This was the dilemma their children encountered, when they inherited this fantastic, but giant, collection.
Then came the idea of making a museum, but no museum can hold a collection with this dimension, therefore, about 250 cars have been selected, which have constituted what is now the America’s Car Museum, the National Automobile Museum of the States United in a modern building built for this purpose.
See the gallery of images of this collection of endless cars, before and after the creation of the museum.
