Memorable trips? The most memorable was the first trip that took place when I bought the Landy in February 2010.

I purchased it sight unseen from a gentleman in Syracuse, NY, flew there to pick it up and drove it to Chicago where I lived at the time through a really nasty mid western winter blizzard. The cars floor boards were so rusted away that I could see the road and the heater was no match for the freezing draft.

I drove all those miles in my snow board clothing to stay warm, the car was slipping and sliding all over the place with its worn out 13 year old tires but it was a great memorable trip.

I had finally bought my dream car.
After that trip, I took it apart completely and proceeded to restore it by myself. The journey hasn’t been boring since then.
Now Arthur is ready for some new adventures!
