This is in San Francisco during the early '20s after it was rescued from a barn at Bob Burman's widows farm. C.S.Howard had it stored at his San Francisco dealership for some years where it was seen by Buick engineer Charley Chayne who restored it at Buick engineering in Flint, eventually it was turned over for display at the Sloan and Buick Gallery in Flint, Michigan.
