Indeed. My father liked his books.

I liked his books, but he was a real car enthusiast.

Every novel had some form of car chase, and often, the hero was in a Stutz, or Packard, or Hispano-Suiza, Delahaye, Aston-Martin, Bentley, or whatever Clive was thinking of that day.

But the thing is - Clive actually owned all of those cars!

He worked at a gas station in his early years, and loved cars. When the money from his novels started rolling in, he started collecting.

His collection is now here: https://www.cusslermuseum.com/

I remember those references to cars in his novels. Sometimes in the back of the book there would be a picture of Mr Cussler in the same automobile he described in the novel.

Not only did he write adventure, he lived it as well.

I have read all of the Dirk Pitt series. They were always great. I believe he has been writing with his son the past few years

When I lived in Denver around 1998, the MB Club had an outing to the museum, since it was right there in the metro area. Spectacular.
