The Lingenfelter collection GTG 6/18/11

VIA AutoBlog

Quote:
Back in 2009, we gave you an inside look at a truly amazing car collection located in Michigan. At the time, the owner preferred an air of anonymity, so we referred to him as the "Sultan of Michigan." His collection is both expansive and all-encompassing, containing automobiles from a range of eras and locations. The man's name is Ken Lingenfelter (cousin of the late John Lingenfelter), and the doors to his collection will open to the public on Saturday, June 18th.

For $15, you will gain access to a collection of over 150 vehicles that range from early Chevrolet Corvettes to the Ferrari Enzo wearing build plaque number 399. Lingenfelter has amassed the type of automotive showcase that makes all enthusiasts envious, while also providing a timeline of exciting vehicles that spans decades.

This isn't just about viewing a collection that's rarely shared with the public. Ken Lingenfelter is hosting the event to support the Detroit Institute of Opthalmology. The organization is devoted to being the leader in collaboration of vision related research, and a champion of helping those with impaired vision.

You can get a look at Lingenfelter's cars by way of the Lingenfelter Collection website. If you're in the Brighton, Michigan area, however, we suggest you pony up some dough and see the vehicles in person. You'll feel good about helping a charity, and we'll feel jealous that we're not there to see the cars for ourselves. This is a collection that is not open to the public, but is occasionally available for car clubs to view when they donate proceeds of the viewing to charity.

Tickets can be purchased online, over the phone (313-824-4710), or at the door (7819 Lochlin
Brighton, MI).

I'm really thinking about making the drive to Brighton. It's only a 3 hours drive from where I live and hey it's for charity.

Let me know if any of you guys are going, I might see you there.

Well I went to the collection today and all I can say is wow. There was so many cars that I thought I would never get to see in person. Here is a few pictures from the day. Sorry 56K users.

Sorry I took these with my phone because I wasn't sure if they allowed cameras or not so some of these are pretty washed out.

Edit--- Mod may want to add 56k beware to title if possible.

Great pictures! Hard to believe the size of that collection. Another friend went to something he did last month, got to talk with "the man" himself. He told him that every car gets driven a little bit every year.

Yeah I saw the guy there with his new wife or wife to be and he was walking around talking to people. He actually let some guy sit in in Lamborghini Gallardo which made me jealous lol. His wife also had probably one of the biggest diamond rings I have ever seen.

Wholly Cow, what a site.. and what is sad, some of those cars I have owned, such as the chevelle, the gto, the Trans am, the firebird, and so on. Now I look with sadness that I let those things go.
