Warm up The Black Beast, close off the Motor Parkway’s remnants and show that Renault who’s boss!  Some of the myriad L I car clubs might consider the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum in Philadelphia as a destination, It’s better than wearing out canvas chairs in hot parking lots…

I live in east rockaway, Nassau County, but my boat is in brewers glen cove. I will be checking it tomorrow morning i hope you do not mind me stopping by for a while. It is not often one sees a pack (3) of Tuckers!

To fit in I will drive my 1991 Buick that my late aunt Iris gave to me before she became ill.

Please do not forget the other Curtis Field former home of the 99ers and frequently visited by Charles Lindberg and Emilia Airhart. Most of the property is now known as Green Acres.

Was this Renault from Harry Verity’s collection?

I could swear each spark(ing) plug is bigger than a piston in my FIAT 500!  Waterman and Gibson also saved the 1865 Dudgeon steam wagon, <> et seq., now in the Smithsonian.  Sam, III

Forgot to ask - is it known to whom this particular car was originally sold?  Sam, III

Sam III, I believe no one has a record of the original owner.
