I know because I worked for one located on Cape Cod that specialized in vintage Buicks, a real character named Dick Garbitt. I also knew well another supplier of collector cars to Len named Friendly Bob Adams from southern Wisconsin. A really great friend whose son (also a good friend) Bob Adams junior now restores cars in Scottsdale AZ........Bill S
Thanks. Great history. That's one reason I'm posting these photos: to hear the story(s) behind them.
