California Borgwards

From our correspondent in No. Calif., Michael S Moore:
"I don't know what it is about the Benicia Yacht Club but every once in a while something [like that Model A a week or so ago] curious shows up in the parking lot around the time I take my afternoon bike ride.  A couple of days ago it was this little 1959 Borgward "Isabella", about which you may well know more than I do...

"The Borgward guy was at the yacht club today with yet another specimen...

"Meanwhile, up at the local muffler shop, where I'm having the pipes on the '45 redone before asphyxiation triumphs...a 1950 Hudson, Commander, I think he said, runs and drives; $3500...I'm not tempted, but it would make some crazy person very happy I'm sure..."-MSM
