Nancy LeMay was born May 3, 1936, in Porter, WA. In the early 1960s, Nancy met Harold LeMay in Aberdeen, and they were soon married in 1963, creating a blended family with their eight children. In addition to raising their family, she and Harold found time to build amazing collections. While Harold considered his red 1934 Packard Sedan, acquired in 1952, to be his first true “collector car,” the “old-car bug” didn’t truly infect him until he bought a Ford Model T and joined a Tacoma club in the mid-1960s. What started as a hobby became a lifelong passion. Nancy and Harold’s collection included hundreds of cars, antiques, toys, and other Americana – dolls, salt & pepper shakers, meat grinders, and vintage cash registers and more. Nancy was beside Harold every step of the way – she even had a commercial driver’s license (CDL) endorsement, so she could drive the garbage trucks, commercial vehicles, or car haulers if needed. Harold and Nancy started the Annual LeMay Car Show in the late 1970s, and she continues to host it to this day. By 1997, the LeMay family collection was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the “Largest Antique & Vintage Vehicle Collection” with more than 1,900 vehicles. Harold lived just past his 81st birthday, passing away in 2000. The LeMay family’s collections continue to grow and are maintained under Nancy’s direction with the help of many wonderful, hard-working volunteers.
