    Spent the day at the Cleveland History Center and had a great time. The section I want to tell you about was the display of autos and aviation from the Frederick Crawford collection. He formed what became TRW out of a Cleveland scrap-metal shop. By 1957 he was the highest paid auto parts executive in the USA. The upper floor were mostly turn of the century vehicles that had their origins in the Cleveland area: Packard, Chandler, Baker, Peerless, Cleveland motorcycles. The lower level were a mix of American cars. The Mopars were great :a '72 Dodge Colt, '57 Chrysler 300C, '35 Chrysler Airflow, '48 Chrysler T&C, '66 Plymouth Belvedere 426 Hemi, '63 Chrysler turbine engine, '66 AMC AMX prototype, '02 Compass prototype, '03 Dodge Avenger prototype, '70 Cuda AAR.
