This Guy is a Chevy Guy!

Every Chevy Convertible Ever Made

This is really some collection, worth a small fortune.

Top this one. Every Chevrolet convertible since 1912.... What do you suppose this collection is worth? This collection belongs to Dennis Albaugh in Ankeny, Iowa just north of Des Moines. The personal and private collection consists of 110+ Chevrolet convertibles... all years from 1912 to 1975 and Corvette convertibles from 1953 to 1975. That is a Chevy convertible from every year of manufacture EXCEPT 1939... The reason? Chevy didn't make a convertible in '39 -- and ended its convertible line in '75! His 'boy toys' include his own 18 hole golf course, copied somewhat after Augusta National. He is what you call a REAL Chevy guy, but his passion seems to be convertibles! This billionaire made his fortune selling farm chemicals!

Fellow blog follower and club member, Neil Heimburge passed this along to me to share. I'm not really a "Chevy Guy" other than a few models, but you've got to admire this guys passion. I can just imagine this guy as a kid sitting in his parents car at a gas station "back in the day" when a Chevy convertible pulled up next to them and he thought...wow, what a car, some day I'm going to have one of those!

  1. Dennis now owns a 1939 convertible. How? They were built in Australia, and he imported one.
