Members of the public will be able to gaze over the large collection of classic cars owned by Lenny Shiller for the first time, as part of a fundraising event being held to raise money to support the Brooklyn Free School in Clinton Hill, NYC.
Mr Shiller has been an avid fan of classic cars throughout his life and has spent the best part of 50 years accumulating a collection of over 45 vehicles.
The cars and trucks in his 2300 sq foot garage range in age between 44 years and 88 years, with vehicles of all shapes, sizes, makes and models being present.
Mr Shiller gave an interview to NY1 in which he pointed out that all of these vehicles are still operational, despite their age.
Like many major collectors, Mr Shiller is occasionally called on to provide his vehicles for the purposes of filming. His 1965 Chrysler 300 convertible is a good example of a car that has found fame, in this instance as part of a music video for the B-52's track 'Love Shack,' which was shot back in 1989.
Charging $10 for adults and $5 for kids, the event will be held on March 25th for those who want to see some classic cars and raise money for a good cause.
