  • My Favoritre Quote

    'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'

    Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Finishing this 1932 Chevrolet Convertible Cabriolet’s 40-year restoration was a family affair


I found this great article on Hemmings.com
Strange though it seems, apples have a tendency to start things. The story of Adam and Eve, for instance, or Newton’s ruminations on gravity. Apples also started the restoration odyssey of a particular bit of General Motors history. When an aged lady came to the home of Allan and Pat Kehrley in Liberty, New York, to buy apples one summer day, another story was begun.

A partially assembled old car in the garage caught the eye of Helen Adolph, who had owned a car like that when she was a young woman. She told Allan and Pat some of her stories: how she bought her black car in New York City in 1936 and used to drive it up to Sullivan County every weekend until she and her family moved up permanently in 1941; how after the war, it was stored in her barn’s hay loft, and how upset she was when her husband sold it in 1953 without consulting her.  Continue to full article and images.
