Green Wheels: Caring for Classics
I enjoy spending time with my friend Alden Sherman, a Fairfield County resident who's 93 but sure doesn't look or act like it. A machinist and jet engine inventor, he lives surrounded by cool stuff — a 1917 Pope motorized bicycle (made in Hartford!), a mid-30s Duesenberg Toledo kid's car capable of 20 mph, a rare 1830-era steam engine that probably powered a sewing machine, and some really cool cars.
