Over the course of his 88 years, Idaho farmer and World War II veteran Callan Phillips was known for three things: his work ethic, his love for his family, and his passion for anything on four wheels, according to daughter Sherri Anderson via KTVB News.What started as a few "$50 pickups" used as simple transportation around his 2,000-acre farm blossomed into a true collection after his retirement in 1994. By the time he passed away in 2013, he'd amassed an eclectic mix of about 80 perfectly-restored cars worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.

"His passion was this. This is what he loved to do," Anderson told the Idaho Statesman. "It was almost an obsession. Dad’s quote was he didn’t find the cars; they found him. And they did… He’d get so excited about fixing them up."

Included in the amazing treasure trove is a quartet of Ford Model Ts, a leather-topped 1928 Rolls-Royce, a 1947 Studebaker Starlight Champion Coupe, a 1950 Bentley Mark VI, a 1957 Hudson Metropolitan, a 1965 Ford Mustang GT, a 1965 Buick Riviera coupe, a 1967 Mercedes 200 sedan, a 1967 Dodge Polara 500 convertible, a 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu Super Sport, and a 1982 BMW 528.

Then there are the duplicates, like several Ford Thunderbirds and Rancheros from the 1960s, two 1979 Mercedes SLs, and more classic Ford, Dodge, and Chevy pickup trucks than you can shake a stick at. Given Phillips' obsession with full restorations, they're all in amazing shape despite sitting around for the past few years, surely helped by the professional-quality workshop and storage facilities he built on his farm. An auction employee told the Idaho Statesmanthat she got "chills" when she saw the collection in person for the first time.

Porsche 917 from Steve McQueen's 'Le Mans' goes for auction this summer, again

  Porsche 917 from Steve McQueen's 'Le Mans' goes for auction this summer, again This one was on camera and behind it.Although the car wasn't driven by McQueen personally, it did appear on film. It also helped capture some film, since it was used as a camera vehicle, too. After all, if you're going to be recording race cars on track, you need a car that will keep up with them. According to Gooding & Company, the car was also used as a test car for the 1970 24 Hours of Le Mans. After that it was sold to a real factory Porsche driver, Jo Siffert, who subsequently leased the car to McQueen's film company the following year.

Idaho Farmer ' s Jaw - Dropping 80 - Car Collection of Classics Heading to Auction . Thursday, 03 august 2017. Like you, when we first looked at these heads , we imagined them hanging out of the engine compartment of a Model A or 1933 Ford.

Sadly, Phillips' wife also passed away in January, and as much as Anderson says she and her siblings would like to keep the cars—she called the process "emotional" and said it's like "selling a piece of Dad" in her KTVB interview—there are a lot of other affairs to sort out and the family doesn't have the time or resources to maintain the collection. Instead, after spending much of the year swapping batteries, changing tires, and slowly pulling the cars out of storage, they're looking forward to passing them on to people who will truly enjoy them.

"If we can sell these cars to someone that's really going to appreciate them like Dad did, then we've done what we're supposed to do," she told KTVB.

In that glorious moment, James Bond became the Dukes of Hazzard. Bond even put on his best Southern accent when he said “I sure am, boy,” confirming to Sheriff Pepper that the barrel roll was happening.
