10. Ann Arbor is known as tree city, what's your favorite and why?

I served on the Dean Fund, which was a fund left to the city by Elizabeth Dean in 1963. The purpose of this fund is to plant trees on city land. During my time as chairman of the fund, we planted thousands of trees, of all species. So if I picked out just one, many of the others would feel left out. I was fond of the ash tree by the window of my garage, until the emerald ash borers got it.

Only Ford's bargain V-8 could out-buzz Hudson's freshest creation in 1932. By the third year, Essex would be dropped from the name and the car was known simply as the Terraplane. The 1937 Terraplane Series 71 Deluxe seen on these pages was purchased by Ann Arbor's Bob Elton in 1980. At least, Elton thought he'd bought a Terraplane. The pile of parts said to make up one complete car had been created by two previous owners. Both had progressively dismantled the Terraplane, all the while getting further from the end goal of restoring the car. It turned out, though, that several key parts were missing, and some items clearly belonged to vehicles that weren't a 1937 Terraplane.

The story of Chrysler Corporation is an epic story of bold, ambitious men, horrible mismanagement, bad luck, gritty perseverance and the will to never say die. Local car historian Bob Elton presents a fascinating introduction to this once great company. In today's troubled times for the car business, it's a story worth hearing. This event is held in conjunction with the Main Street Area Association's July 11 Rolling Sculpture Car Show and cosponsored by the Main Street Area Association. Mr. Elton is one of the founders of the Rolling Sculpture Car Show.
