Brothers Collection Logo

Welcome to The Brothers Collection, probably the most comprehensive collection of Muscle Cars in the country – if not the world. It features hundreds of cars from from all makes… Hemi Cuda converts, ZL1 Camaros, even ’57 Rancheros with factory superchargers. The Brothers are actually Brothers and friends of mine. They are nice guys that value their privacy but want to share their love of cars. We think that Muscle Car Of The Week is a great way to share some of their collection and we think Kevin Oeste is the perfect car guy to bring them to you. The Brothers Collection is not open to the public at this time so Muscle Car Of The Week is the best way to see some great cars and we think Kevin does a great job of bringing people up to speed on whatever Muscle Car we feature. The features are usually not just only about that actual feature car but also that model in general. The Brothers are also usually nice enough to loan a couple cars each year to the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show in Chicago, so you have the opportunity to see some of their cars in person – check the site at http://www.mcacn.com. Thanks for your time and we hope you enjoy the weekly features.
