This month one classic car collector from Wyoming has spoken out about how he got into the idea of owning old vehicles and how the prestige of particular models can grow over the years.
Robin Murdock told CodyEnterprise.com, that his first classic was a 1966 Chevrolet Caprice, although he pointed out that when he originally purchased it, it had yet to achieve classic status.
As the Caprice matured and its reputation grew, he began to acquire other old vehicles and his collection now includes a total of six cars.
The oldest is a 1951 International pickup and he also has a 1960 Chevy Impala and a 1965 Corvair. His work as a windshield repairperson allows him to come into contact with plenty of unusual vehicles and this helps to further feed his passion for all things automotive.
The Caprice owned by Murdock still has the original engine block and even the same seat covers that it had when it rolled out of the factory over four decades ago.
He explained that while he takes care of the classic cars he owns, he is not bashful about using them on the road and believes that this is an important part of appreciating them.
