I am trying to find a 1930 Chevrolet and 1926 Model TT my grandfather sold in 1991 and also gave the trophies he had won to that person. I believe it was a funeral director that had a place in the Upper Peninsula, and had restored a cemetery and maybe a chapel. He had his deceased parents moved up to the cemetery. My grandparents were J.B. and Sarah Alexander, which lived in Warren Michigan on Studebaker. Any information would be greatly appreciated. MIchael Alexander mikealex1970@gmail.com (731)223-0114

Got this from my Aunt Reanee Kalvinski. It would have been 1995 that I talked to him to try and buy the car back. J.B. had told me he was a funeral director in Birmingham and I don't remember how I got his name and number. Maybe Sarah gave it to me. But I called him and he told me that he had moved the car and truck up to the upper peninsula where he had restored a cemetery. He had even had his parents reinterred there. I seem to recall that he also restored a chapel. Unfortunately I can't remember what town in the UP. I remember he shared with me how much he liked J.B. and he would probably never know for sure if he bought them because he liked them or he liked him so much.
He told me that he had had a building built to store them and even displayed his trophies there. He told me that he did not want to sell them, but offered anytime I was up there, stop in, see them and even take them for a ride. He also said he would keep my name and number with the car should they ever be up for sale after him. That was 22 years ago now. He might be gone as well by now.

I tried contacting The Model T Flivvers and the email and phone number on the website is bad. Does anyone know how I can contact them?

Just an FYI ... the president of our local club, Casual T's ... sent your notice above, to all of our members, as well.
