Joe's car is another one that escaped my camera at the 2017 Ypsilanti orphan Car Show, but it didn't escape it last year. So I'll include those photos to make sure everyone gets to see this beauty.

Here is a front quarter view of Joe's 1960 car from the 2016 show.

Yes, that was Groucho Marx in the front seat of Joes car. Groucho makes several appearances at the Orphan show. Joe and his family have a lot of fun at the Orphan car show. Joe's daughter Laura Sinclair and her husband Dan come along with his grandkids. They pack the car for the pass in review and wave to the bystanders. Dan and Laura have a DeSoto too- a 1951 seen as "July" on the Club calendar. their car has missed the last two shows due to mechanical issues. Dan, you have to call on your fellow members to come and help you wrench on that machine.

Here is a rear quarter shot of Joe's car.

Finally, here is Groucho's view of the instrument panel in Joe's car.
