sweet cars

so i get a call from a guy, needed a starter on his expedition but had no way to get it to the shop. he tells me theres plenty of room at his place and hed pay extra if i came there and did it. no biggie, i walk in the shop and see this. a javelin, mustang, charger, and some off breed corvette (brickland). after checking these out i go on the other side and its filled three rows deep of classics, mustangs, studabakers, couple chevelles, all kinds on sweet cars. ill take some more pics next time im out at his place. he might of just became my new fav customer

Cool collection there for sure. Went to help one of our guys load an old pool table last weekend and his dad has a '68 Camaro SS, '69 Charger and a '52 (5) window Chevy truck hanging out in the basement. Couldn't help but drool for a bit..

The owner of Brickland used funds from his import company to start the auto manufacturing business. He made millions importing kilo's of herb, hence the name Brickland
