It was just his life - but what a life! From his boyhood on a dairy farm in upstate New York during this country's Great Depression, Ray Lindsey went on to have many exciting adventures. College... More > years were interrupted by military service in WWII. A degree from Cornell University led to a job on New York's Long Island. He married Barbara Dickerson and together they started his next chapter - his "Necktie Years" when they started a family and a poultry business together. Ray valued looking his best - and wore a shite shirt and tie everyday - even while collecting eggs in the chicken house! His abiding interest in antique cars lead to the purchase of a '14 Model T Ford and then several more very early cars over the years. This self-described "chicken farmer" traveled extensively with his wife and early "used cars". He was a self-taught expert on steam-driven cars.
Ray's stories are written in hopes that some of his experiences might be educational, interesting and perhaps entertaining.< Less
