How about some old cars too?

These are photos taken of my father-in-law's garages. For many years, he was a major provider of automobiles in Hollywood for use in motion pictures, television series, and commercials. As he is now semi-retired, he has reduced his inventory from several hundred cars down to about 30 of his favorites. It's always fun to take a stroll through the garages during family get-togethers!

For the record, these are not digital shots, but are (rather poor) copies of printed photographs. I'll take some digital ones next time I'm at the house if there is any interest.

Allen,

That looks like a very valuable and collectible vintage collection. Some better pics would be appreciated.

Thanks - JJ

Favorite son-in-law. OK - ONLY son-in-law. Also, only one in the family tall enough to get things off of the top shelf! (I think that's why they like having me around!!)
