This latest article took a lot longer to write than I anticipated. I hope you find it was worth the wait.

BritishV8's Tour of Clive Cussler's Classic Car Collection in Arvada Colorado

(If you enjoy these articles, please consider tossing some change in the tip jar.)

The Stutz Factory is still standing in Indianapolis.

Near downtown....it's HUGE.

I'll find a picture that I took of it about three weeks ago and post.

Great article Curtis! Drew ran across a Clive Cussler book while at Winter Park earlier this week so the timing of the article is perfect!

By the way, I particularly liked the write up on the pink '36 Avions ;).

Saved the crowd favorite for last. Straight out of B.S. Levy's "The Last Open Road".
