CHICAGO -- Sunday marked the third year for the Rise and Drive event from Collectors’ Car Garage.
“There’s old guys, there’s young guys, there’s people carriages with kids … it’s just a wonderful situation and we all love cars,” said Burt Richmond, co-owner of the new 60 thousand-square-foot Country Club for Car Owners, a place he says is to store and admire.
From the Porsche 918, and the McLaren P1, there were supped-up sport cars -- way north of a million bucks apiece.
“It’s like Comic Con for cars,” said car enthusiast Nilo Ranger. “You get a whole variety a lot of people having a good time.”
Private collectors showed up and showed off -- even for a good cause, like The Dream Squad.
“We have a fleet of superheroes and we take these cars out to hospital, orphanages, all over and provide the kids with an experience with a superhero,” said The Dream Squad’s Micky Khurshid. “If you’re going to have nice cars, you might as well do something good with them.”
