  3. My grandfather was like a kid ripping out pages of his father's magazines all the car ads he could find. He also alphabetically listed over 1500 car/carriage manufacturers. He restored a couple of Mercers and was one of the original seven who started the SCCA, in 1944. I have photos as well, including the famous Duesenberg 16 valve "Walking Beam". ? I had no idea!
