with a Lola, a GT 40, the James Garner 4x4 Baja Sc/Rambler, Peter Revson's Trans Am Javelin, a Hurst SS AMX, the ramble seat prototype AMX, and the Don Lee Special, and about 70 others
In the late 1980’s, Phillips opened his current endeavor, Focus Auto Design, which specializes in molding and forming custom auto parts for restorations and general fixes. Because of the high demand for his services, Phillips quickly earned the money he needed to get back into collecting cars.
Unlike almost every other collection of this nature, these nested boxes of wonder aren’t secreted away from the public and covered up. Instead, every so often Fred throws open his doors and gives a guided tour of his collection. If you happen to be in Calgary at the time, do everything in your power to attend.
You won’t just be getting access to one of the most fantastically varied car collections in the country. You’ll also be getting access to Fred Phillips. Trust me, this is well worth the price of admission – a donation to AARC, the Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre.
Thanks Greg, for getting it. Look around at the content, the stories, the photos, the heros and icons. If bashing on the grammar and spelling mistakes is all the satisfaction you can get, you're blind to the elephant in the room... and need a lot more maturing than you'll ever achieve lurking on the internet while building toy cars. Go outside and see the world, step away from the computer for a change.
