I have been a fan of “old cars” since I was nine and my Uncle Dudley in Michigan took me to see the collection of a friend of his. To this day I can still close my eyes and see that barn full of vintage iron: the 1930’s Rolls Royce limo, the Ford Model T, the American Bantam, the 30’s Chevy pickup, the 20’s Cadillac, the Stanley Steamer, the Brush Runabout, the Baker Electric, and two dozen more. I was hooked, and have stayed hooked ever since. If you’re an addict, too, check back from time to time and I’ll have some (I hope!) interesting things to share with you.
I think this is a good place to add that four people stand out particularly among all my many friends in the hobby, and I want to thank them for their support, expertise, guidance, companionship, understanding and willingness to share my motoring madness.
And remember, when it comes to old iron it’s always best to, as my pal James Wiley Prowse used to say, “Keep the shiny side up and the rubber side down.”
