Brian and Samantha Styles have amassed quite a collection of classic muscle cars in a collection they call The Zoo. Containing some seriously rare metal, the collection seems decidedly tilted towards Mopar offerings, although it's hardly exclusive to the Pentastar. The video is an interesting look into a collector's world, with the couple explaining that their collection isn't an attempt to have as many cars as possible, but to have the right cars. As for the name of their collection, it's a reference to the "the Goats, a bunch of fish... and a Cougar over in that corner."

There's some talk about provenance, as well as some "thrill of the hunt" type language about looking for the right addition to the group. It's also good to see that the Styles don't just let the cars sit, taking time to exercise each car. Take a look below for the full look at The Zoo, in this latest video from eGarage.

        He earns his money with the same passion and attention to detail as he gives his to his Zoo.

      It was really cool until the cars became a small part of the "Zoo". Meh.

      Beautiful collection. Keep the spirit alive because these cars are disappearing. Pleased to see his passion. Yes, it takes money to run with dreams like this. Just accept what the guy is doing.. He's clearly NOT an a hole, and his girlfriend shares in the passion. It just is what it is. :)

      Very nice video. I enjoyed the man's passion about these cars as much as I enjoyed seeing the cars. It is great to have someone like this help preserve these treasures which are timeless and will be appreciated the same way in the next 40-50 years. For anyone who grew up at this time like I did, these Muscle Cars capture the essence of the American spirit at that time. Freedom, power and American built.

      Just a note to the couple - the ones who own all the Vipers were not interested in adopting a middle aged son. Perhaps you might be interested in an adoption? I promise to be quiet and well behaved if you adopt me. Thanks!

      It's not a shared interest in the cars keeping them together. It's her interest in a guy with a butt load of money! If he wasn't rich, only had one or two old cars, and a Playboy collection, she would either be riding his ass to get rid of it all, or gone.

          I'm not generalizing all women. I know women that are into old cars. She doesn't show any interest in the cars themselves. Check out the video about the couple with the Viper collection. She is definitely into the cars.

        You have no way of know this. Your comment is pure conjecture and quite frankly, stinks. Sorry, but why try and ruin a very nice video with your vapid comments?

      ARGGG! What a vapid chick - she makes me want to barf. What's up with this lousy video trying to be a petrolicious with stupid people. Cars are awesome though.

      Not to harp on this, but while it is interesting to see what some people do with all the money they have; I'd still prefer to live in an America where many average folks could afford to have one of these cars as a collector car, rather than in an America where a very few folks are able to hoard all the collector cars and everyone else struggles to afford they're one daily driver.

      Don't be too surprised here folks ... MANY of these Baby Boomer types have INHERITED their money from either Parents or Grandparents. Remember Depression era and WWII generation saved a bunch of their money and were very low spenders ... Thus their kids or grandkids get to enjoy the money after these folks passed on. Living off of your Grand fathers earnings is a real good deal.
