About the Author

Butterworth, Molly: - Molly Butterworth started her museum career and began nurturing her love of vehicles in high school as a volunteer in the National Museum of the United States Air Force. That career has included roles as curator and director of the Museum of Transportation and historic building preservationist at Faust Park. Happily, that career has also provided a little vacation time to spend with a 1975 Argosy 28 trailer built just blocks from where she was in the shared

hometown of Versailles, Ohio.

Eyssell, Tom: - Tom Eyssell has been a Professor of Finance and Legal Studies at the University of Missouri-St. Louis for over 30 years, and a car guy for nearly 50. His love of automobiles began with his work as a mechanic in the early 1970s, and continues to this day. He currently has four 1960s muscle cars in his garage and is always looking to add to the "fleet."
