I started collecting old cars in 1965 with a 1942 Dodge sedan, which I still have. I collect mostly Mopars, but have others too. Currently, I have 17 old cars of which 9 are woodies (4 are T&C cars). I currently have a 1942 T&C barrelback (have owned 3 barrelbacks) and am knowledgeable about them. I have owned every T&C model from 1941 to 1950. I also own a 1949 Chrysler Royal woodie wagon and two Plymouth woodies. I have lots of T&C literature and photos.

Historian - Don Narus

In 1947 as a Sophomore in High School, I was so impressed with our neighbors new Chrysler, that I vowed to one day own one just like it. During my High School Junior and Senior, I worked as a "Lot Boy" at a local Chrysler dealer.  washed cars and got to drive them around the lot. I will never forget the 1948 T&C Convertible the day it arrived at the dealership. I washed it and drove itI was so impressed that the image was etched in my mind. In 1970, married with two children, I purchased a 1948 Chrysler New Yorker Sedan with Highlander Plaid. It would become the first of many. In 1971,  I acquired a 1948 T&C convertible (exactly like the one I drove as a "Lot Boy"). This led to two 1947 T&Cs, two more 1948 T&Cs and a 1949 T&C, which also led to my first book, "Chrysler's Wonderful Woodie", and the founding of  "The Town and Country Owners Registry", and many more books.  Soooo as they say: "The rest is history".   That's pretty much my story.
