Growing up, both my grandfather's had old cars. One had 3 regular-joe Model A's, the other had done rather well in life, so had some nice cars. Over the years, a couple nice duesys, cadillac V16, lincolns, cords, auburns, but Packards were his specialty.
I had posted these some years back, but the links seem to be gone...
This is the particular duesenberg I was referring to, Clive Cussler owns it now (I happened to be wating 'my classic car' and they did a feature with Clive driving this car, I about choked to see my grandpas car on tv!).. We drove Jelo Leno in this car in the Auto 100 parade around 1999 in Detroit.
A couple of the many many cars he had over the years... these all were in the order of $40k-$50k per year insurance
Actually, all of these cars in the pics were in the garage at the same time, along with at least 5 more. Grandpa was a 1%er, as the kids say.. They are all gone now (the grandpas and the cars
LOL, see, THIS is a good use of a historic plate, car club meeting at Grandpa's house:
