Dave (O_D) once mentioned the comprehensiveness of this private collection, including several Darrin's.

See this link for more pictures and comment on the Marano Collection at the Toy Box. I've visited perhaps a half-dozen times as Ralph is quite generous in opening his doors a couple of times a year to the local regions of CCCA, PAC, AACA, etc. A visit to the Toy Box was an option this year on our PAC Henry Joy Tour.

Got it on my DVR and WOW, talk about being envious. I was lucky enough to see a local Rambler-Nash Museum near me in Elizabeth, CO.
