In the 1970s, Hal Orchard was one of California's leading Duesenberg restorers. He later turned to restoring wooden boats. Steve shared with me this video of Orchard in 2009, piloting his Lycoming V-12-powered Dodge, "Tango."

I particularly like the steering wheel.

So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
