Ernst Collection 2022

We have visited the Clifford Ernst collection several times over the years. Even though it has not changed a great deal since our first visit in 2009, it remains a favorite to visit. This week (early October 2022), we noticed that his COPO Camaro collection was smaller and there were many of the same cars but there were also some new ones. When I got back from the visit I realized that some of the cars in this great collection I had overlooked before. I am not sure if my taste have changed or if, in the past, I was so taken by the massive collection of COPO Camaros I just didn’t give the other cars the attention they deserved.

It felt like the number of cars was down slightly but the quality remained at an extremely high level. It was hard, if not impossible to find a flaw on any of the high end cars. Some were extremely rare and desirable.

Below are some of the new photos from our most recent visit to the Ernst Collection.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.
