I am the owner of several old Antique Automobile Magazines. As I was searching through August 1964, I discovered this interesting article about the famous Thomas Flyer where its restoration was completed for the Harrah’s Automobile Collection.
The article also explains Bill Harrah’s love for classic cars and his beginnings to becoming a collector. I had the privilege of visiting the original Harrah collection in the mid to late 1970’s off of Glendale Ave. in Sparks, Nevada. It would take you days to complete the tour.
It is now named the National Automobile Collection, and is much smaller than in its prime, but still worth stepping back in time and hear about a man who loved collection and restoring classic cars.
