Vernis Collection Tour / Forensic Mechanics Presentation Sat. May 26th

** Want a sneak preview??  Here it is !!

Myron Vernis has invited the MBCA Western Reserve Section to tour his eclectic collection of collector and special-interest cars on Saturday May 26th from 1-4 p.m. In addition to seeing a very special automotive collection, we will get an introduction to Automotive Forensics by Lyn Smith.

About the cars—the collection has close to seventy cars from seven different countries and every decade since 1910. There are several one-off and very low production number cars. There are basket cases as well as cars shown at Pebble Beach and Amelia Island. Regardless of condition, all have a great story. It’s a garage, not a museum, but it has been featured on venues such as Jalopnik and has been recently visited by Jay Leno.

About Forensic Mechanics Lyn Smith has been in the automotive business for fifty years. His primary focus is Forensic Mechanics, where he is contracted by government agencies, insurance companies, law enforcement, manufacturers and attorneys to study and help determine the causes and results of vehicular mechanical failures. He has worked on high profile cases all around the United States and is highly regarded for his skills as an expert witness.  Lyn was one of the first people in the country to be awarded emeritus status as a Master Mechanic by ASE.
