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.

  • Olan Mills Portrait Studio
    Armed with an army of innovative and certified shutterbugs, Olan Mills Portrait Studio provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to recreate look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea-battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.

    Take a table at Pleasure Garden Club in Philadelphia and look forward to your next meal. The restaurant hosts a DJ, and visitors can take to the dance floor as well.

  • Purple Orchid
    Avoid the average American meal and swing by Purple Orchid, where food critics are known to cheer on a grilled cheese and fries can receive a standing ovation. Weekend diners, beware! The restaurant is busiest on Friday and Saturday, so getting seated will take some time. Purple Orchid is close to multiple parking options. For a decently-priced meal that's not too fancy, Purple Orchid hits the nail on the head.
