In the spring of 1966, my sister graduated from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio. My folks and I drove up from Cincinnati to help her pack. Knowing my addiction to old cars, she asked if I'd like to see an old convertible she'd found in a green house on an abandoned estate owned by the Carr(?) family. She and her roommate had explored the house and grounds, and removed a bunch of old clothing and memorabilia that was being ruined by neglect. The car in the greenhouse was a Duesenberg boat tail roadster in bare aluminum, without the exposed exhaust pipes. I figured the car was worth maybe $20,000.00 (I'd read a book on these cars while in high school) and begged, literally begged my dad to try and buy it. Right, they'd just paid $23,000.00 for a nice house. I saw the car displayed maybe ten years later a a show in Indianapolis, so I know it got saved. I took my sister from the airport to Yellow Springs this summer for an Antioch reunion, and we found the old estate again, totally overgrown and almost unrecognizable. Some of the heirs (so they claimed) live across the street in a little house and came out to speak with us. They had no idea that such a car had ever been in the family, or for that matter, what a Duesenberg was. Five years ago, my sister returned all the items she'd saved from the house to an elderly Carr relative.
