Does anyone know who owns the Black Towncar at the Old Car Festival License #1245 and does anyone have good photos of it?

Don,
Bill Praus passed away in 1991. The car now belongs to his son, Tom. This was the first time in 30 years that the car has been at the OCF. We had a great time and hope to do it again.
J Praus

Royce:

The photos you posted are not of the Minneapolis town car.

Erik,

They were sent to me by Casper 10 years ago saying that they were.

Trust me - it's not the car.

Royce,
Eric is right, the photos show Roy Lovegrove's Towncar of Swartz Creek,MI Serial #890254

Either way I still miss Casper and Dwight.

Yes that is Roy Lovegrove's car it is now in the James Finney collection. My father and I have two of Roy's former cars and it was still on the farm when we were there in the early 90's. It was a regular car at the OCF back in the day.
