Q&A with Tyler Suarez, Founder and President

What makes your business stand out?
Golden Era Motors is a one-of-a-kind business that allows its clients the opportunity to drive and experience classic muscle cars. Our clients get to skip the high price tag and demanding time requirements inherent in owning classic cars and cut straight to the best part: driving them! Our clients are a diverse group: some are 25-year-old adrenaline junkies, others drive our cars as a "bucket list" item, and some are simply nostalgic [and] looking to reconnect with some exceptional examples of "American Muscle."

What inspired you to start this business?
After years of enjoying my own classic cars, I started this business to share the pride and exhilaration that comes with driving them. Years of observation at car shows and "cruise-ins" revealed many in attendance did not actually own vehicles themselves, yet they had a fond appreciation for them. Golden Era Motors (GEM) allows those same fans a taste of what it's like to be in the game rather than on the sidelines. We want our clients to touch and interact with our classic muscle cars.

What?s your favorite part about your job?
The fringe benefits are tough to argue with! [I love] "test driving" and maintaining the collection.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We own all of the cars in our collection, and therefore you can be sure they have been properly maintained. We do not rent cars on behalf of private owners or play photography mind games with you. Every photo you see on our website was taken of an actual GEM car.

Crowds of people wearing white T-shirts, tutus, and old wedding dresses race through the streets during the Funk N Run 5k. They wear white because a rainbow of colors will pelt their clothing during the event. It's not totally necessary to wear white, though; the colored-cornstarch dye will show up on garments of all hues, including black yoga pants. This untimed, noncompetitive race is known for its celebratory party atmosphere, but that's not the only reason to attend; the charitable event also works to give soldiers and their families memorable homecoming experiences.
