Ray has always taken Annette to car shows in their 1930 Model A, but she wanted her own ride. Her 1951 Chevy Deluxe is the same year, make, model and color of the car that she and Ray had while dating back in high school. They've been looking for this vehicle for several years and finally found one in a local car show only 50 miles away from home. They had spent years tracking this kind of car down and it was right under their nose the whole time. Ray and Annette met at 13, dated at 15, married at 18 and have been together for 55 years. What's the key to a successful marriage, you ask? Having his and hers collectors.
I was born and raised in southeast Michigan and after high school I attended school at Ferris State University for a bachelor in Recreational Management and Leadership. I moved to Traverse City in 2011 and have been enjoying the spectacular fishing and hockey for a few years now. I have been fortunate enough to be working for Hagerty for around 3 years in a few different departments. I am currently an Assistant Manager for the Auto Sales Team.
