Four auto aficionados open up their garages and show us some of the most stunning machines ever made.
Some say New England’s back roads are perfectly designed for the vintage roadster: Ocean breezes hum along to the powerful purr of a handbuilt European engine, while every bend in the road offers a chance to revel in solid midcentury engineering. Perhaps that’s why Massachusetts is a hub for auto enthusiasts. In fact, the North Shore’s Paul Russell and Company services the prized possessions of world-class collectors like Ralph Lauren, while Brookline’s own Larz Anderson Auto Museum—which boasts the oldest privately owned collection of motor cars in America—has become a veritable classic-car owners’ country club.
To capture this area’s passion for the vintage auto, we asked four Boston-area aficionados to open up their garages and show us some of the most stunning machines ever made. Ahead, they share the stories behind their all-time favorite wheels.
