Watch as Petersen Automotive Museum tours Anne Brockinton Lee’s prestigious classic car collection


An enormous warehouse in Reno, Nevada, houses a remarkable collection of more than 200 classic and collector vehicles owned by Anne Brockinton Lee.

The collection began by Lee’s late husband, Robert M. Lee, when he purchased a 1956 Ferrari 250 GT Series I cabriolet prototype from Enzo Ferrari. His collection took off from there.

“Bob started collecting cars back in the ‘50s. I don’t think he realized that he was going to be a car collector, but he just kept buying cars that he liked and it’s a pretty good base for me to elaborate on,” Lee shares while giving Leslie Kendall of the Petersen Automotive Museum a tour of the collection.

After her husband passed away in 2016, Lee took over the collection that includes four Pebble Beach Best of Show cars, a room full of Ferraris and Bugattis, a row of unique mini cars and so much more.

“Anne continues to add to the collection focusing on one-offs, coach-built cars, and cars that reflect the ideal combination of design, provenance and beauty,” Petersen writes in the video’s description.

  1. Jeez I hate video stories. Show me pictures and I’ll check every one of them out. Videos? The vast majority of videos posted are too long by a factor of 4X, minimum.

    Probably a nice collection, but I’m not watching.

    Now I need to go yell at some kids to get off my lawn.
