Have you ever visited an automotive show or searched the internet for photos of your favourite cars? You may have seen the work of Howard Cohen. Howard has loved cars since childhood and owning his own business gives him the opportunity to share his passions with others.

Howard has worked in the automotive industry in new car dealers, warehouses, distribution, auto shows, races, sales, service and customer service for many decades.

For the last sixty years Howard has been building miniature cars and selling them at numerous swap meets and shows. Attending many events and museums has allowed Howard to capture thousands of stunning photographs of cars. These photos have been shared in books, magazines and websites, often accompanied by articles written over the last several years. Howard’s collection features some very rare vintage cars. 

Howard’s website features the sale of digital photos and a selection of unique hand built and diecast miniature cars. Howard says that with the help of the ShopHERE powered by Google program:

“I was able to get help starting a website that I was not able to start on my own, and I am grateful that it features the various items that I always wanted to sell online.”

Howard wants other small business owners to know that, 

“The program is a good place to start and learn about setting up and operating a website and a small home business.”

The ShopHERE powered by Google program is partnered with Shopify, Google, Mastercard and Microsoft to help build and optimize online stores for small businesses and artists. The ShopHERE program is providing a no-cost way to help businesses adapt to the eCommerce climate. It is important now more than ever to support local small businesses.
