Last summer my wife and I went down to a small Army reunion in NC. I saw Pikeville, home of Collier Motors, was pretty much right on the way.  I first saw Collier's by chance while I was on active duty back in 1991 - I was mesmerized by all the AMC cars there - and this was before the place got so overgrown.  27 years later Colliers was still there but just about totally hidden from view by trees and brush.  I  saw a small office trailer on the property that looked like it was a bit less abandoned than the other parts of the site.
I found out that owner Bob Collier had passed away earlier this year at the age of 88. 
Has there been any changes to the property and operation recently?  I sure hope that some of the vehicles can be saved and go to good homes.

Sad to hear Bob passed. I traded a rusty '68 AMX to them for a rust free '72 AMX body in '99. I spent 2 hours in awe going around that place with them until I grudgingly had to get going back home. If I could have figured out how to get one of the Alabama State Trooper cars in my truck or on the tralier with the '72, I probably would have dragged it back too! Great people and unbelievable amount of history there.
