The Atlanta Concours d’Elegance is able to present new groups of rare cars year after year because of collectors like Stephen Plaster, who will showcase six vehicles from his Evergreen Historic Automobile Collection at this year’s event. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution recently received a tour of Plaster’s collection — not available to the public — in central Missouri.

The Evergreen collection, started by Plaster’s father, includes rare cars like the 1932 Lincoln KB used in FDR’s first inaugural parade and notable vehicles from television and film, the AJC reported.

From the AJC article:

The younger Plaster soon developed a keen eye for rare and high-quality cars and helped his father grow the collection, which can range between 600 to 900 vehicles at any given time.

Then there several cars featured in popular television series or movies, like Austin Powers’ 1976 Cadillac Eldorado from “Goldmember” and that Shaggin’ Wagon [from “Dumb and Dumber”].

“The Evergreen collection is truly one of the greatest collections in the world,” said Bill Wallet, co-founder of the Atlanta Concours d’Elegance, to the AJC. “As the largest private collection of automobiles over 100 years old, it is absolutely phenomenal.”
