As a boy Terry’s favorite toys were his collection of matchbox, hot wheels and “Tonka trucks. Always dreaming of the day he could play with full size cars. In 1988 that dream became a reality starting with his dads 54 Ambassador that was purchased in the early 70’s by dad for $50 from Krance Motors in Price Utah
At 129,000 miles the oil pump gave out and the car was parked out a the family farm where it sat for 18 years. When visiting his dad at the farm Terry would play in the Nash pretending to drive it around. years later at a family reunion Terry’s brother asked him if he wanted the old Nash or it would be sent to a junk yard. Terry’s dad passed in 1977 so he decided to save a part of family history and save the Nash.
Finding parts to restore the Nash was not easy without the help of the internet and still a challenge today with very little reproduction parts available for Nash Cars. Terry’s desire to save a part of family history has changed to saving the history of Nash Motors. Nash is a very important part of automotive history and needs to be saved for future generations.
Terry’s love of cars is not limited to Nash, Rambler & American motors. His collection contains 39 other manufacturer including at least one of each of these makes. DeSoto, Dodge, Chrysler, Imperial, Plymouth, Edsel, Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, Chevrolet, Covair, GMC, Cadillac, Pontiac, Geo, Opel, International, Studebaker, Kaiser, Packard, Allstate, Checker, Yugo, Rolls Royce, Porsche, Wolsley, Fiat, Mercedes, BMW, Vauxhall, Jeep, Bricklin, Funwagon, Citroen Mitsubishi, Acura & Honda.
