AKRON, OH. — Northeast Ohio is a hotbed for car collectors.

The annual Molto Bella Auto Show, held this past weekend at the historic and picturesque Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens is just further evidence.

The invitation-only show features a unique blend of exotic cars, high-end imports, historical vehicles, and sought-after American muscle cars—some worth more than $1 million.

The show was founded in 2012 by Frank Todaro and Dave Nelson as a tribute to the late Mel Todaro, who passed away from kidney cancer. It benefits the Kidney Foundation of Summit County, OH.

This year’s event featured more than 400 cars in 20 different classes—everything from Bugattis to Ferraris to Chevy Tri-Fives. Here’s a little flavor of the show:
