At 17 years old, Mike spotted the car in a garage in Connecticut and drove her to Lewistown, Montana. When he joined the service, The Dodge D-19 Luxury Liner convertible was abandoned and laid to rest in a Montana coulee. Mike longed, and connived; he strategized and twenty years later risked it all, maneuvering the impossible to resurrect and restore his beloved Dodge to her original glory. Together forever, their life stories are as inseparable and dazzling as the dual carburetors of her 1980 Jaguar XJ6 with a GM turbo 400 transmission.
Mike’s wife, Anne, studied French cooking, owned two restaurants and a B&B. For over 30 years, she has been a daring accomplice in the lives of both the Dodge and her husband.
