Hello, all. Just joined the forum. I was wondering if anyone has seen my late father's 1927/8 8-77 Cabriolet recently. It was in pieces in our garage since the early '60s. He restored it in the early to mid '90s, showed it for a few years at the Auburn Labor Day Meet, as well as AACA meets, and then he passed away in 1997. After that, my mom sold it to a gentleman in Arizona. I talked with him a few times and actually visited him and the car once. When he was selling it about 8-9 years ago, he offered it to me, but I wasn't in a position to buy it at the time. I eventually saw it listed by Gullwing in New York. It was on their site for quite a while, but I assume eventually sold. I haven't seen anything of it for several years.

I'm mostly just curious as to where it may be now.

PS: The reason I referred to it as a 1927/8 is because it was manufactured in Oct '27 (if I recall) and would be considered a '28 model year car, but carried over many 1927 features.

Thanks,
Scott

I might have just answered my own question. I just did a Google image search and saw that as of this February, it was on display at the ACD museum! May have to drive over there sometime soon. Still interested in any additional info.
