Restoring & Preserving -- Leonard loved any thing with wheels and an engine -- Cars - Trucks - Tractors - Flywheel engines - Wagons - etc., he especially liked original ones - the rarer the better - and saved many projects he was personally unable to get done to be passed on to future restorers and collectors. He loved auctions, buying and selling and had plenty of room to store his treasures. There is a barn full, a shop full, a Quonset full & a car shed full. There is a hillside full of projects -- some very worthy ones. He preserved many signs, oil cans, & automotive miscellaneous. Parts, Farm History items and lots of “discoveries.”
