A lawyer based in Newton, Massachusetts, has shown off his collection of over 100 classic cars to the Boston Globe, explaining how his passion has allowed him to accrue so many vintage vehicles over the years.
The collection may be large, but Charles Gould is actually an enthusiast when it comes to micro cars built in Europe during the decades after the Second World War.
Mr Gould said that his collection has grown not because he is looking to accrue a diverse array of vehicles or to make money, but simply because he wants to preserve cars which have historical or mechanical significance.
This led him to recently acquire a 1948 Flexible Clipper, which had previously been used as a tour bus by a polka band, but had been sitting unused for two decades before its owner contacted him to see if he would be interested in taking it on.
Another thing which sets Mr Gould apart from the crowd is his insistence on restoring every one of his vehicles to a roadworthy condition, which he does using his own tinkering skills, only occasionally calling on friends when faced with a particularly complex car project.
