Welcome to


This site is dedicated to prototype cars and other interesting cars from various periods in automotive history. The Bortz Automotive Collection has been featured at ACD museum, Cleveland Auto & Aviation, Peterson museum, Gilmore museum, Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, and were the featured cars at the Louis Vuitton show at Rockefeller Center. They have been covered by numerous magazines and featured in many car shows.


With this site we hope to bring these cars, their history and rare looks at the cars themselves to the World Wide Web.
We would love to hear your comments on how you like our website!
