Occupation: Retired

Car’s make and model: 1917 King

“I love my car because … my car and I were both born in 1917. I brought it back to life in the early 1960s and later gave my friends in my retirement community joy rides. Before I recently donated it to the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum, I sat in it during a celebration at my retirement community. There is a wealth of information about King Auto and Charles Brady King on the website clubs.hemmings.com/kingmotorcar.”
