Attached is a photo of my last remaining Antique car. It is a 1917 Ford Roadster. What is special to me with this car is that it once belonged to my cousin and childhood friend, Larry Vandersloot who became a Homesteader in Alaska in the early 1960's.
He bought this car in 1980 and drove it 400 miles during winter to his 160 acre homestead. He came back home to Michigan in recent years due to cancer and passed away. There was no funding for his funeral so I bought the car from his sister to pay for the funeral. So happy we did that and have enjoyed many local trips and car shows with the car named Larry It starts up reliably every spring. No rust anywhere even though bare original (high chromium) Ford steel is showing on some areas.
Imagine that these same motors were used in WW1 trucks and aircraft of the time. It's just amazing to all who see it. An original 1917 Michigan license plate with pewter medallion is still on the car. How did it ever get to Alaska? Maybe it was just a build there with cobbled parts ? Why the very red seat? Who cares; it's not a show car but a fun driver.
