About “My Keeper”

This painting is a George Trosley Original painting that my wonderful wife gave me for Christmas.

I bought this car when I was a Junior in High School. I dated my future wife in it. We also drove it on our honeymoon. I sold it shortly after we were married. I bought it back 15 years later. It had been off the road the whole time.

After a massive restoration, it is worth WAY more to me than to anyone else.
