"I've had a passion for old cars since I was just a kid," said Orlo Gilbert.

The 72-year-old car enthusiast remembers the day he set eyes on his beauty -- a 1914 Willys Overland.


"I was four years old, sitting in the right hand side while my brother drove it ... or tried."

Gilbert says cars back then were one-of-a kind, and if you didn't know how to drive each one, it was a mistake to get in it.

"He had it all smashed up just driving it home," said Gilbert.
