GM Obsolete founder and owner Jerry Hammer had been collecting as well as restoring vintage and collector GM automobles since the early 70's. He was in the family furniture business until 1986, when he formed California Collectible Cars & Parts, soon becoming one of the leading parts suppliers in the country. Shortly after he found himself in the restoration field specializing in Eldorado's and limited production convertibles. His cars have won numerous national first places, best of show, and AACA junior and senior awards. Many of his restorations have been featured in countless automotive enthusiast magazines worldwide. He currently holds the world's record for the highest priced 1959 Eldorado Biarritz ever sold at public auction (1988). In 1989 he sold California Collectible Cars & Parts and stopped restoring. After moving to Phoenix Arizona in 1995 he could no longer stay in retirement from the vintage car business, so he started GM Obsolete in 1998.
