Default AE Performance Wharehouse

I stumbled upon the above feature the other day and found it to be incredibly fascinating. Obviously, this is a collection of some really great cars (GT40 for me please), but the way they are stored or "collected" amazes me. Stacking car on top of ca...

Ryan or others do you know who is behind all the cars? Is that a private collection or a performance speed shop with a lot of great cars? very cool cars that show collectability in the 1980-2010 range instead of the normal 50-60's collections. Through a few vipers and other doodads in the mix and Iwill send over the trailer to take the collection off their hands!

I was wondering the same thing. What's the story here? If you go to AE Performance web site you get videos of race cars and an opportunity to buy a small hand full of products built for an equally small number of car models. Those products didn't generate the cash needed to fill that stable.

Now that's cool! I'll take the Skyline!

I have always liked that kind of automotive storage, but all I can imagine is how they have to be extra cautious and always park anything that leaks on the bottom lol.

I believe Paul Walker (actor from Fast and Furious, Varsity Blues, etc) owns most of the cars.

A nice collection, most not my style. I'll tend to stick to the older stuff. Saw a couple of 69 Camaro's that would help make my garage look better.

I know, right? A warehouse full of Porches, BMW's & Saleens and the only car that I really like is the Merc wagon.

The cameraman needed a lesson in using a camera, awful work/no editing. And there was no reason to do 2 vinyl wraps on the Rolls, could of easily done it once in matte blue and cost half as much.

Nice collection though.

Not a bad collection, but I wouldn't trade it for Don Long's collection, or garage for that matter

I like at the begining he says "this collection will make Jay Leno or The Sultan of Brunei jealous". Not to knock this collection as it is impressive in my eye, but apparently the host has not seen Jay Lenos collection or the Sultans. I caught a show of Leno's and it is absolutely amazing, plus when he did the BBC Top Gear show and Jeremy had a partial list of Leno's cars, 7 pages typed, two columns per page. There was also a show I saw on the Sultans estate, it was claimed he had over a thousand cars.

im not really a "american muscle" kinda guy, but I do have a really soft spot for Fox body Mustangs. Pants were a little tight with all the Fox body Stangs going on in there.

Ford execs have always been obsessed with keeping cost low on the basic Mustang platform. I've always been bothered by its lack of a proper sporting independent rear suspension, rather a Model T-like live rear axle. Cars as varied in the Ford line-up as the Fiesta and Expedition have it. I know one short lived high end version had an independent rear, but that's long gone.

Some time ago I read the next Mustang will be designed in Australia as our Aussie Falcons have a suspension that will be far more suitable to the Mustang.

Need to fire that camera guy...that guy who was hosting used to do somewhat decent car video reviews, Garage419 or something like that. Sadly he seems a little full of himself these days...

I think that Bronco is a little out of place. I hope these cars get driven, probably not.
