Auto Show The Drive Home
« on: January 12, 2018, 11:53:02 AM »

This years Drive Home includes a 1959 Cadillac owned by one of my favorite college professors Reg Bell.
Professor of Chemistry at Kettering University. Formerly General Motors Institute.

Reg was a life long Cadillac Driver. In 1963 he arrived at the University driving a 1959 Cadillac. At his 50 anniversary at the school a former student gave him this car. A team from the university drove it from Florida to the North American Auto Show in Detroit. In January.

Reg was an amazing mythical professor. 50 years and never took a vacation. Which is saying something as Kettering is a year round school. He use to give a lecture called Explosions I have known and loved. The school made him stop doing it in the eighties. But allowed it again at his 50th with the assistance of a pyrotechnic team.

My 1 regret was that I was not able to finish my car before Bell died.
