Ocala, Florida car collector has done it all, from TV to towing

Dennis Darnell has worked as a television and movie technician, private investigator and owned a towing service. But his true love of him is car collecting.

“I’ll keep car collecting until I’m toes up,” joked Darnell, 81, who maintains his passion for collectible cars even after a five-way heart bypass in 2006 and later suffering three strokes.

He said his illness prompted the sale of his collection.

“I had a collection of 1950s Oldsmobiles and let it go around 2007,” Darnell said.

Darnell has since amassed another stable of collectible vehicles, ranging from a red 1932 Ford “highboy” hot rod with a 350 V-8 engine and custom wheels by Edelbrock to a 2015 Chevrolet SS pickup.
