Harold Allsop had two great loves in his life. The first, at least chronologically, was his 1937 Cord two-seat convertible. The second was his wife, Marion. It was his Cord that drew her to him in the first place. She liked his car. They went on their honeymoon in it and they took their kids on vacations in it, with them being stashed in the trunk with flashlights for games and reading. Harold would go on driving the Cord for 66 years, the last time in 2011 at the age of 90. He passed away last year and Marion and their two children, Peter and Heather, have decided to let it be a part of another family, selling it at auction.

"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
