    If you are a Chevy lover, or car lover in general this 6 min video is amazing.



    some things in his collection

    Every Chevrolet convertible since 1912

    Wow! What do you suppose this collection is worth ?

    This collection belongs to Dennis Albaugh in

    Ankeny, Iowa , just north of Des Moines .

    The personal and private collection consists of 110 +

    Chevrolet convertibles...

    all years from 1912 to 1975 and Corvette convertibles

    from 1953 to 1975.

    That is a Chevy convertible from every year of manufacture

    EXCEPT 1939...

    The reason? - Chevy didn't make a convertible in '39 - and

    ended its convertible line in '75!

    His 'boy toys' include his own 18 hole golf course, copied

    somewhat after Augusta National.

    He is what you call a REAL Chevy guy, but his passion

    seems to be convertibles !

    This billionaire made his fortune selling farm chemicals!

    Can you imagine have every 1957 Chevy Bel Air convertible color that was offered?
