Sean Mathis's grandfather, whom he called "Pop," originally bought this 1959 Cadillac Coupe de Ville in California.

Being the only car enthusiast in his family, Sean spent most of the next ten years trying to take ownership of the car...

Having actually worked at Porsche for six years (first in PR, then marketing), I have to attribute part of my love of old cars to my time there.

Working at Porsche nurtured the other side of my automotive brain, introducing me to the ideas of continuity, heritage, and unbroken lineage.

Having read, watched, and heard so much about so many historic motorsport icons such as Spa, Maranello, Modena, Monza, and the Nürburgring, I finally decided it was time to experience each of them for myself, with my own eyes, and in the case of the Nordschleife to actually drive on the most iconic racetrack in the world...

The day I heard that “Drive Tastefully: Paramount Ranch” was happening, I immediately bought tickets. Only afterwards did I begin to consider that I may have gotten ahead of myself.

I had been searching for the kind of car that when I walk away from it and look back, I'd smile (and I still do that every time).

The Vallée de Chevreuse, southwest of Paris, is a green and peaceful area full of forests and open country, crossed by roads that become regional classic car enthusiasts’ favorite playgrounds on weekends.
