Oakville, Ontario is home to the Ford Motor Company of Canada, including its headquarters and Oakville Assembly plant where the Ford Edge and Flex and Lincoln MKT and Nautilus (nee MKZ) are built.

Burlington, Ontario, which is right next door, is home to Ford enthusiast extraordinaire, Angelo Paletta, who loves to collect and drive unique, high-performance machines from Ford Performance and Carroll Shelby.

A self-confessed Ford fanatic, he has a personal collection of Ford GTs, special edition Mustangs, vintage Shelbys, and whatever Ford memorabilia he can get his hands on, that rivals those of some museums.

Paletta houses his collection in what he calls the “Car Cathedral,” a working garage that includes his own man cave. Eat your heart out as you take a video tour of this Ford-lover's dream come true.
