Gaston County man collects the relics of the road

GASTON COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - Harold Russell has been in love with cars, he says, since birth.

"I just enjoy fooling with them and enjoy people coming and looking at em and enjoying them," said Harold, of the now 35 cars he keeps and sells from his Gaston County garage.

Most every single one of the cars come with a history. Some come with roots planted deep in Gaston County. "This was purchased new in 1949 by R.L. Stowe in Belmont who built the first mill in Belmont." Harold said of a 1949 Cadillac that he still uses for some local weddings.
