Default You never know what you might see....

While at work on Friday delivering heating oil, an older gentlemen opened his garage door while I was filling the tank. I was quite surprised to see a '36 rumble seat convertible. He said he bought it in 1973 an it has original paint and a newer motor. He allowed me to take a picture but I don't know how to load it off my phone.
I noticed another vehicle all covered over beside the convertible. When I asked what it was he got a twinkle in his eye and said it was a 1931 Stutz he bought when he 16. He's now 80. It's a straight 8 with a Royalston (sp.) body. He said there were only 5 made with that body and his was #1.
His father took he and his brother to a local hotdog stand one afternoon and when the Stutz took off from the stop sign he never forgot the sound of the motor when the driver shifted. He vowed he would one day own it.
There's been a thread on here about how long people have owned their cars.....I thought I'd share his.

Cool story. Regarding the spelling, that would most likely be Rollston. Wayno
