How is this unique?

The Survivor Collector Car Event was held on Sunday, June 24, 2012, at Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, Illinois, SURVIVOR Collector Car - now in its fourth year - is a great venue to see original cars that have escaped the wear and tear, restoration and modifications typical of most collector cars over 20 years old.  These cars display the finger prints of their histories and the owners who have cared for them over the years.  The SURVIVOR Collector Car event allows owners, restorers, historians, photographers and experts alike to reference the only true sources for authenticity:  the cars themselves.

This 2012 SURVIVOR Collector Car event has continued to recognize many different grades of unrestored original vehicles with is unique awards program, as well as what may become the most prestigious preservation award in history: The ZZenith™.  Our goal with this year's dynamic awards event was to deliver a greater number of awards and, more importantly, superior recognition for the owners of these outstandingly preserved vehicles.

See a "Field of History" built and painted by the original factories instead of restoration shops. Imagine an original GTO parked next to an original Cobra parked next to an original Cadillac and so on!

People who are like-minded about unrestored cars seem to enjoy looking at all brands.  These cars bring back strong memories - it's about time we appreciated them!
