The "Long Island Automotive Museum" was liquidated years ago. It was a family owned private museum & the owner was experiencing health & old age problems. He was a very knowledgable enthusiast, but sold everything off before he passed away many years ago. Hope this helps

I think he was also known as "Austy" Clark, if I remember correctly.

My Dad went to the auction after he passed away and bought some of the memorabilia along with one of the cars from the museum. I think this was in 1971. The car he bought was an original 1915 Model-T that had never been restored other than having a paint job sometime around 1950. My Dad still owns the car and to this day, the engine has never been rebuilt and it has the original top and upholstery along with its 1950 paint job. We fire the car up and drive it around maybe once or twice a year.

My Dad (Don Randall) and a good friend of the family, Jack Gardner, flew out to Long Island to the auction. My Dad had no intentions of buying the Model-T but couldn't pass it up for the price it was going for. Now they had a problem. They had to go home and get a trailer to haul the T home.

After a few minutes of thought, they loaded up the stuff they bought into the T, cranked it up, and headed for Michigan!

He was written about extensively in Ralph Stein's books. It sounded like he was a collectors collector.
