I have read the cream colored one was actually owned by his 2nd wife Actress Carole Lombard. When she was killed in that 1942 plane crash Gable could not bear to look at it and sold it. Does anyone know how it came to be in Canada? I saw it at a few years ago when it was at the Petersen Museum. Hard to imagine, 1935, people are selling apples on street corners and Gable zooms by in this outrageous car. I need as many pictures as possible of Gable and these cars. I already have the one of Gable in front of his home closing the engine bay door and the one taken with him outside MGM studios with this car. Do any others exist?
