A Collection to be Preserved and Celebrated

Owned by none other than Bob Marvin, of Marvin Windows fame and also the Mayor of Warroad, this collection isn’t just about cars—it’s a testament to passion and legacy. For Bob, it all began in 1981 when he purchased his first car a ’65 Riviera. The Shed  in Warroad began as a passion project for Bob, a car aficionado who envisioned a space where the rich automotive heritage of the region could be preserved and celebrated. What started as a modest garage quickly became a treasure trove of meticulously restored vehicles, each with its own story. These stories come alive if Bob or Rick are around to give you a personal tour.
