About the Cofer Collection:

The Cofer Collection, or Stable of Thoroughbreds, is and has been a work in progress since the early 1950's.  Gene Cofer started his family automobile collection in the early 50's when his wife Neta was pregnant with the first of their five children.  Since 1951 the Cofer car collection and the Cofer family has grown.  With five children and twelve grandchildren, Gene Cofer left quite a legacy and quite a lot to live up to.

Mr. Cofer loved antique automobiles and sharing them with others.  It was not unusual to see him driving to work in one of his many collectible cars.  His motto was, "If you can't enjoy them, why have them?"  The first car Gene and Neta bought was a 1926 Buick.  The Cofer's soon added a 1930 Oldsmobile and a 1928 Lincoln, and as they say, "the rest is history". The collection is still growing today thanks to his wife, children and grandchildren who all admire and love the collection and want to see it grow and stay together.

The Cofer Collection is one of the finest in the Southeast.  It is an eclectic combination of All American Automobiles amassed by the late Gene Cofer and his son Chip. Every car is meticulously maintained and driven on a regular basis by curator Cecil McCall and overseen by Chip. The highlight and shining star of the collection is a 1935 Fernandez and Darin bodied SJ Duesenberg originally owned by the late Madeline Astor, widow of John Jaccob Astor. The collection has had many cars appear in movies, such as "Tucker- The Man and his Dream" and "Bobby Jones- Stroke of Genius"
