OCCUPATION: Boat broker
CAR'S MAKE AND MODEL: 1954 "Red Ram"
"I LOVE MY CAR BECAUSE ... I owned and drove this car all over Seattle in the 1970s and was able to acquire it again in 2005. This is one of four race/street sports cars built locally by Anders Thompson and raced on Seattle-area road-race tracks in the 1950s with Ferraris, Jags, Austin Healys and other famous sports cars. I'd love to find the next owner, someone who could restore this car to its previous glory."
