Roger Sorenson’s Classic Car Collection

The list is extensive.

A treasure trove of automotive history is set to create ripples in the classic car community as Roger Sorenson, an avid classic car enthusiast, announces the auction of his sprawling collection. Amassing over a hundred rare and iconic automobiles over the years, Sorenson’s assortment has turned heads and attracted aficionados, making it a distinguished attraction, especially at its current residence, the Adams County Speedway.

Origins of a Lifelong Passion

For Sorenson, the journey began at the tender age of 14. The avid collector nostalgically recalls his first transaction, trading a horse for a Ford Model A. This initial acquisition ignited a passion that would see him procure a spectrum of automotive gems, ranging from the illustrious Chevys and Fords to the distinctive Pontiacs, Oldsmobiles, and Packards.

An Evolving Collection

“It’s kind of an addictive thing. I had one, then I thought I might as well have two and so on from there," Roger Sorensen remarked, his voice laced with the enthusiasm that has driven his lifelong pursuit. This ardor led to the assembly of a collection that enthusiasts describe as “unbelievable,” encompassing a myriad of models each narrating its unique tale of automotive evolution. Steve Pfeiffer, an admirer of the collection, was struck by the sheer magnitude and diversity of it, expressing his astonishment at seeing so many cars congregated in one location.

A Labor of Love

Sorenson's relationship with his collection transcends mere ownership; each car is a testament to his dedication and meticulous care. Despite the varied condition of the vehicles, with some necessitating extensive work, Sorenson's passion for restoration and maintenance never wavered. Friends liken his cars to his children, requiring attention, care, and occasional cleanup, adding a layer of personal connection and affection to each piece in his collection.

A New Chapter

At 78, Sorenson contemplates a future with a smaller, more manageable collection, intending to retain a select few reminiscing the bygone days. “I finally decided I can only drive one car at a time," he muses, signaling his readiness to pass on his cherished collection to fellow enthusiasts and collectors.

A Collector’s Dream

The upcoming auction represents a unique opportunity for classic car aficionados to acquire a piece of automotive history, each car emanating the echoes of its storied past and the meticulous care from its devoted owner. It also offers a glimpse into Sorenson’s world, where every car is a cherished companion, a tangible representation of his lifelong devotion to the world of classic automobiles.

In conclusion, Roger Sorenson's decision to auction his expansive collection marks the end of an era and the beginning of new journeys for these classic marvels.
