Can you list all the Pro-Cars you have owned?

Maybe I'm not doing too bad for being 24 years-old, but I'm envious beyond envious of your lists. Especially since I have never even seen examples of most of these vehicles in person. My short list is as follows:

-1980 Superior Sovereign Landaulet endloader (white over blue)
-1988 Eureka Viceroy Chevrolet (black)
-1950 A.J. Miller Duplex combo (barn find, sold to a funeral home owner who is currently funding a full, correct restoration)

I still own the 1980 Cadillac.

Good lord Bruce, I knew your list would be long, but didn't realize it would be that long. Oh yeah, and I think you left out the 75 Superior Flower Car.

Boy don't you wish we could have kept all of these? If I had the money and the room, I beleave I would have kept almost every car I have ever owned, Pro-Car and nonPro-Car.

It would be very hard to keep them all, even if one has the resources, there is the up keep issue. Even on cars you only store and never drive. As you start to acumulate cars in large numbers it is way to hard to play with them all. As time passes, if you don't giving them attention, they begin to melt and before you know it you become overwhelmed.

Very true Bruce, makes me kind of glad I let a few go, beings that some needed more up keep or work then they were worth.

As some one who had enjoyed these cars from a distance for many years, these lists are truly amazing.

Do you still own it? Do you know of any other PCS members who have owned a 1960, 1961 or 1962 Guardian?
The guardian has been gone some years now. Unfortunatly rust got the best of that car. I got the car from a guy who had stored it outside for over 30 years. the car's frame pulled appart when I winched it on tho my trailer. I eventually had to scrap the car.

I was debating whether or not to reply to this thread, since there are others here with much more sizable collections, but what the heck, here goes:

1954 Pfefferkorn hearse trailer
1975 Sharpe Lincoln limousine
1977 Sharpe "Lincury" hearse
1977 homebuilt Lincoln hearse
1979 unknown Lincoln flower car
1980 Superior Cadillac landau hearse
1984 Bayliff Cadillac landau hearse
1985 Bayliff Packard combination
1991 Moloney Cadillac 6-door limousine

Those are all currently owned. The only previously owned pro-car would be a 1984 Hess & Eisenhardt Cadillac 6-door limousine, and the only reason it is no longer owned is it was lost in a collision.

You may not have the largest collection, but everyone knows you have the most rare of them all!

Walt, yours is truly a list of classics. And cliche or not, the '59 Crown Landaulet is the ultimate pro car in my eyes. Amazing!
