68 YEARS COLLECTING AND TRADING



TRANSITIONING TO SLOWER PACE

Clarence Young Autohobby is in a process of downsizing. 

Some items from my personal collection have been sold at auction. Many remain. There will be another auction of 36 cars on October 9th, 2021. Details to follow.

The warehouse still has many items in it. There are several thousand pieces of literature and automobilia not yet cataloged. 

In my blood is the enthusiasm for cars and anything about them. As the downsizing continues, I will continue to be in the hobby. 

Check this site out to see how it evolves. It will take a while to make the transition.

The first promo I ever received was in 1952 before I began first grade. Little did I know that it would become a life-long passion. In 1957 I purchased a case of 1957 Ford station wagons--one to keep and the rest to retail at my parent's gift shop.  In 1986 I began this promo business as a vendor at shows. In 1996 I began the process of setting up a website for retailing promos. 

Many thanks to the bunches of people with whom I have traded for the past many decades.

The photo shown was taken at Mardis Gras 2020 Asheville, NC--getting down!
