Cars Of Yesterday

July 5, 2007

In 1960 I was involved with the development, distribution and sale of the world’s first car stereo. It was called AutoStereo and soon became a household word. Everything I learned about marketing, sales and promotion, I learned from my mentor, Earl “MadMan” Muntz( Sadly Earl passed away in 1987 and I think about him often.

I became interested in Cars Of Yesterday( before my 21st birthday. I began to buy as many Cars Of Yesterday( and Cars From Yesterday( in 1960.

I remember buying a 1952 gorgeous V-12 Ferrrari for $5000 in 1961….I still have that car.

As time went on, I accumulated more and more of the fabulous Cars Of Yesterday…today, 421 of the Cars Of Yesterday are on display in our auto museum….Cars From Yesterday.
