Owner: Ethan Moore, Pierce County

Occupation: Retired

Car’s make and model: 1982 Cadillac DeVille

“I love my car because … it was my dad’s last car. When he was 90, I signed Dad up for veteran’s pharmacy benefits, and the VA notified me that he was a World War II volunteer and became a sergeant major in the Army. He returned home and became a successful rancher, farmer and judge, and was active until 95. He was a great dad — no coarse language, cigarettes or liquor allowed at home. Many of the younger people remark that it is a beautiful car, and I agree. He was a great man.”
