Psychology of Collecting - Hunting for Cars


Paul Sable has eight garage spaces, and they’re usually full. There’s an unrestored Nash-Healey coupe that hasn’t turned a wheel in 25 years, a Hudson Italia that doesn’t run, either, and a Fiat 8V Supersonic awaiting restoration. The only cars in his collection that run are a recently acquired Citroën SM and a 1962 T-Bird. Why? Sable is more interested in chasing and catching great old cars than he is in actually driving them. He isn’t alone.
