Some folks have found the "one" and have no intention of restoring it. They just drive it and enjoy it. Some have done unbelievable custom body work and paint schemes. Each person has their own idea and story.
The author has traveled from Woonsocket to Westerly and Nasonville to Newport in search of old cars and trucks to photograph. If it was not raining, he was at an event somewhere every day. People started commenting, "Ray must have cloned himself because he is everywhere."
