This collection of vehicles comes from Major Eugene Severn, a retired Air Force pilot with 22 years of service under his wings. During his career the Major was stationed at many different air bases stateside: North Carolina, Oklahoma, North Dakota and Texas. The Major served overseas at Etain Air Base in France, Rhein Main Air Base in Germany, and Kaoena AFB in Okinawa, Japan. His favorite and the place he called home for many years was Texas. While stationed in James Connally Air Base in Texas the Major started his car collection with the Dodge Coupe D-14 and the 1957 Studebaker Golden Hawk, which he purchased brand new. The Major personally drove the Golden Hawk up to Iowa in the early 70s then put the car on blocks in a friends garage where it remained until June 2018! Since arriving in Iowa, the Majors collection grew to over 20 cars. That said, his love for machines was not limited to cars. The Major, not surprisingly, had a love for airplanes as well. In his prime he owned and operated a 1946 Cessna 120, a 1949 Cessna 140A, a 1950 Swift and a Culver Cadet.
