Over the decades, automobile manufacturers such as Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Bugatti, Duesenberg, Porsche, Bentley, Rolls Royce etc. have rolled out astounding machines that thrilled and enchanted automobile lovers across the country and world. As technology in this space evolved so did the cars and the engines under their hoods. Old, classic automobiles gave way to swanky, sleek cars built for modern day roads and needs.
But the allure of these yesteryear cars continued to live on and for many, old automobile signs, clocks and other automobile parts strike a cord and bring back memories. But it isn’t just people from earlier generations that are attracted to automobilia. In fact, people of all ages and walks of life find these retro pieces fascinating and worth collecting.
AutoMobilia isn’t really a word. It’s a blend word derived from “automobile” and “memorabilia”. It means everything that’s memorable and collectible about classic vintage cars!
