Car Collection in NH

On a recent perfect October day, a group of us went for a spirited drive that started in Portland, Maine and finished at a very nice car collection in NH. The owner, Chuck Schwager, has various European and American marques; some real gems.  His garage is clean and orderly, just how I like it.  A real enthusiast, Chuck gave us an interesting car-by-car walk through; the purchase, restoration, plus a quick story about driving or showing it. What a picture-perfect New England fall day.
