Together, they have preserved and documented some of the most treasured cars of automotive history for future generations… before they were lost for all time. Also, to award-winning photographer Steve Patchin, who captured amazing images of the Uncle Phil Maloof Car Collection. 1934 Duesenberg Dual-Cowl Phaeton (valued at $1 million). By Don Logay | Photography By Steve Patchin. “Uncle” Phil Maloof is a legendary Las Vegas figure. It is a collaboration of one man’s passion and another man’s talent that bring you these captivating images of the Uncle Phil Maloof Car Collection. Also, to award-winning photographer Steve Patchin, who captured amazing images of the Uncle Phil Maloof Car Collection. From 1941 Cadillacs to a 1937 Rolls Royce Phantom, we were impressed by the whole collection, along with the history behind each car. For anyone who loves automobiles, standing amidst these three amazing classics, worth over $4 million, is an incredible experience. “Uncle” Phil Maloof is the brother of George Maloof Senior, a businessman who worked as a Coors Beer distributor and then expanded the family business into hotels.
“It was a shiny new 1941 Cadillac… a stylish auto with futuristic aerodynamic lines that not only captivated Phil… but also made it one of the most popular American automobiles of all time.”.
While now worth millions from a collector standpoint, it is interesting to note that the average car at that time only cost $500 and – compared to the Duesenberg’s $20,000 average cost (and with a little updated currency conversion) – it puts the Duesenberg’s tough-times price tag around $300,000 in 2019 dollars. We saw over 80 of the rarest cars in mint condition. Why so many of just one year? Today there are famous classic car collections all around the world that faithfully restore and curate not only the finest classic collector cars of the early 1900s, but also preserve and display the iconic day-to-day cars of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

While there are hundreds of fabulous collections made available to the public – such as the lavish and expansive automotive museums of Robert Petersen, Peter Mullin and J.B. Nethercutt for example – there are also hundreds lesser known private collections that are equally lavish and expansive. The Golden age of automobiles spanned over a half century of daring and bold advancements in motorcars that were never before seen and never again experienced. From the 1920s to – and through – the 1960s, while automakers developed amazing new mechanical engineering and technologies at a rapid pace, at the same time, designers dreamed sleek and artful body styles into existence.
Our visual storytelling and exclusive content sets us apart. It also led to the popular expression, “It’s a duesy” – coined with regard to the finest vehicle money could buy – that today, still means anything from “wow” to something big and/or extraordinary.
