12,000 sq. ft. modern garage to house personal car collection of self-made entrepreneur who resides on the 5.5-mile long private Ono Island…
Mr. James (Jimmy) Harrell and his wife Tina are car enthusiasts who live on the 5.5-mile long private island of Ono Island, Alabama.
Jimmy’s always had a love for cars – and his philosophy includes a blend of working hard and playing hard – but building his business from the ground up kept him too busy to allow himself to fully enjoy his passion and interests in cars.
Jimmy is a self-made individual who expanded his own business over a span of 44 years. His company, Industrial Sales and Service, sold and serviced valves to refineries, paper mills, power plants and chemical plants, eventually expanding to three locations in Alabama, Louisiana and Tennessee.
Now retired, Jimmy says he has more time to focus on his garage project, in addition to “buying more cars, traveling, and spending time with family.”
He currently has his eye on acquiring a 1955 Chevy, 1940 Willis and 911 Porsche to add to his collection which includes a 1937 Ford Custom.
Jimmy has a self-admitted need for speed, and his 2019 Ferrari 488 Spider is his favorite car in the collection.
Jimmy worked with Metron Garage to customize their Fuel Nation Prime model. Jimmy decided on Metron Garage after his wife and he visited Metron Garage’s CEO Timothy Hogue, inspected a Metron Garage for himself and saw the company’s professionalism and finished product.
Jimmy’s Garage is well-appointed, featuring office quarters, a full restaurant-style kitchen and food prep area, balconies and guest overlooks, boat storage, car storage, carwash and a social area for entertaining.
