Rare Precious Metals

When most people think of RPM they think of revolutions per minute, but have you ever thought of Rare Precious Metals? Well, that is the name of this beautiful car collection hidden in what looked like two abandon buildings in the back roads of Boston. Let me tell you, the buildings were not abandoned! This amazing collection had it all from an iridescent VW Beetle to the fine detail of a beautiful Duesenberg and everything in between!

One of my favorites in this collection was the DB5 Aston Martin that looked as if it just drove out of a James Bond movie! The Hudson Hornet was another cool “movie car”, just like Doc Hudson in Cars. There was also a 1970s “bug-eyed” Lamborghini that was pretty neat. Don’t even get me started on how many Mercedes-Benz there were! As we all know, no Mercedes collection would be complete without a Gull-Wing. There it was, in its breathtaking glory as the center piece of this magnificent collection!

As my dad and I walked across the parking lot to enter the second building my dad noticed a 50’s diner tucked away in the corner! When we entered the diner we found beautifully restored benches, an ice-box converted to a refrigerator and many booths all with their own juke-box! I felt like I had dropped into the 50’s

The first thing I noticed when we exited the diner and entered the second building was a “Viper-Powered Auburn”! On the outside it was classy, as most Auburns are, but under the hood was a different story! This thing was an untamed beast ready to be unleashed! This monster machine had a V-10 Viper engine in it!  Just the thought of it put another smile on my face! Overall I had a great day with my dad, the CCCA and many excellent cars!
