Almost all of us can remember our first car. 

Some classic cars can be found at one family dealership in Minnesota


Scott Ellingson owns Ellingson Motorcars in Rogers. 

"How much do I love cars," Ellingson asked. "I would have to say it's my ultimate passion."

Nearly three decades ago, Ellingson's father started the business as a car museum. After his passing, Ellingson turned the museum into a dealership with buyers from around the world. 

"Russia, New Zealand, Australia, Israel, any place in Europe, Spain and Germany, England and Scotland," Ellingson said. "I mean everywhere."

The dealership has sold cars owned by celebrities including singers Conway Twitty, Barry Manilow and former baseball player Reggie Jackson. 

"That's the number one reason why people want these old cars, it brings back memories," Ellingson said.
