A gentleman named Harold Lewis Of Belmont Fame, from the local Ford dealership, collected some antique cars.
He bought a nice piece of land near our home and proceeded to apply for a building permit to build a nice attractive warehouse for his cars. OUR fair city said NO, NO not here you won’t. You will build a house.
So build a house he did. Nice home, huh?
The entire lower floor is free standing. Except for one center post. He built this with living quarters topside, which no one uses, but hey, if you have enough money and gumption You can do this. The back side has huge double garage doors, Drive in and out. He also built a matching three car garage behind.
Okay why am I on this subject. Cars of course. Mr. Lewis has passed on, but John (son in law (?)). He manages the site. Shirl called and asked for a tour and invited me along.
The A model above 1924 I believe, and the 4DR convertible 1935 are the center pieces. He has some beautiful Mustangs also.
Loved the ‘40 Ford Coupe. Bobby Ferguson had one of these locally in the mid 1950’s.
It was nice seeing the cars, and I always like it when a person wants to do something reasonable, and some local Gov’t refuses and he gets around it because it was right in the beginning. Pretty nice HOUSE, huh?
Right doesn’t always win, but it should!
One of my favorite cars, the 1953 MG. Showing this one for the last time.
