We told you a few weeks ago about the sale of the mysterious Peter Max collection of Corvettes.

Apparently there’s more to the story now.

A lawsuit filed recently claims that the psychedelic pop artist of the 1960s – who once painted an entire Boeing 777 and a 600-foot stage for the Woodstock Music Festival – hasn’t paid two New York men the commissions he allegedly promised them for handling the sale of the 36 Corvettes.

Some people have had car collecting in their blood ever since they can remember. Howard Weaver of Ann Arbor, Michigan is one of those people.

In fact, after 77 years of doing so, Weaver has probably been collecting cars maybe longer than anybody in the United States. A little qualifier on that status: Weaver’s dad actually is the one who paid $50 for a 1931 American Austin in 1936 when little Howard was just 6 years old. That two-passenger coupe later became Howard’s first car, and he still has it along with many other outstanding vehicles in a series of four heated barns on his property. That car was the impetus for a lifetime of collecting cars.
