It was the wildest thing I've ever seen. Not as awesome as Jay Leno's garage by any means, but still quite impressive. I did a detail job on this guy's daily "beater" which is a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. He offered to show me the rest of his collection and this is what I saw...

2007 Saleen S7 twin turbo
1970 Plymouth Superbird
1967 Corvette Stingray L89
2008 Rolls Royce Phantom drophead coupe
2008 Bugatti Veyron
2008 Lambo Murcielago lp 640
2009 Mercedes SLR McLaren

I can't say who the guy is, but he has close ties with the Walton family.

WoW! those are like museum pieces. Maybe you can convince him to auction off rides behind the wheel of those beauties for charity? lol

And how often do you think he & his family actually take those supercars out for a spin? When you reach that level they become priceless works of art.

Oh, I hope your client was a good tipper

A real garage is valued on it's content of tools and equipment, not toys. But i'm sure it was neat to see such a fine collection all under one roof.

I had my new Motorola Droid X with 8.0 megapixel camera with me & asked the guy if I could take some pics, but he said no.

The Veyron would have been enough for me. What state is this in? Just curious. I know California, Texas, and Florida are known to have the most supercars/millionaires.

It's in Missouri (St. Louis) & there's a lot of wealth here really even though most people who don't live here wouldn't think so. In some of the West St. Louis county suburbs Ferrari and Lambo sightings are pretty common. One day not too long back I saw an Enzo and an F50 cruising together.
