1959 Ford Galaxie Skyliner Art from Michigan

Art was Bozo the Clown on WJBK in Detroit, MI for 25 years before starting his own radio talk show, “Let’s Talk Cars”, in Detroit on WXYT. You can imagine a car man with a fun and whimsical personality will have a collection of vehicles that reflect just that.

Art’s love for classic cars began when he was in high school and worked for a teacher doing yard work and was paid with a 1929 Model A Sports Coupe! The Model A was an early forerunner of the convertible; the top didn't come down but the back window came out and allowed the wind to blow through your hair. The Model A began Art's attraction to convertibles. He currently owns a 1958 Ford Fairlane 500 Retractable Convertible, a 1959 Ford Galaxie Skyliner Retractable Convertible, and is searching for a 1957. Since Ford only made Retractable Convertibles for 3 years, he is looking to own a "Hat Trick" in Retractable Convertibles.
