British Invasion - Stowe Vermont
Every year Mike Kitterage brings the British part of his extensive car collection to the British Invasion. This year he had 15 cars that by my guesstimate were worth around $3M, just parked in its own row amongst the rest of the cars on the field. What's really cool is that he doesn't truck them to the show but recruits his friends to drive! I was talking to one of his friends who told me that his collection is about 40 cars, with a large Italian "section". So who is Mike Kitterage? See if you can figure out his company from the following quote off their website:
“It all started with a gift for my Mom…”
Christmas 1969. Sixteen year old Mike Kittredge, too broke to buy his mother a present, melted some crayons to make her a candle. A neighbor saw it and convinced Mike to sell the candle to her. With that small stake, he bought enough wax to make two candles - one for his mom, and another to sell. That was the birth of........??
