The Making (and Occasional Unraveling) of a Sports Car Buff

The fifty-nine year saga (1932-1990) of collecting, fixing, and mostly losing thirty-seven cars and one ancient belt-drive Pope motorcyle.

by Harry Phillips

From Fred Lyngard, friend of the author: 

     "From a list of cars as long as your arm, Harry Phillips, a local boy from Utica went from amateur car buff to dedicated and often frustrated car collector.  However, Harry didn't keep his collection but went from car to car more as forms of basic transportation most of the time.

     Harry's rationale and motivation for writing his car memoirs (a sort of 'auto'-biography) is the claim that his experiences are more numerous, more strange, more unique and often more exasperating than any which happen during the average person's lifetime.

     I have had the great and singular honor to know Harry Phillips for the last half-century - from his professorial days at Crane School of Music in Potsdam, NY to his sailing days racing with him in a 30-foot yacht on Sarasota Bay in Florida when he was in his 80's!  People used to remark to me, 'Aren't you afraid to be out there in that big boat sailing with Harry at his age?'  I would respond gleefully 'Oh, I fear for myself once in a while but Harry - I never worry about him!'  I mean he was still playing doubles tennis three times a week well into his 80s!

     This delightful story's timeline spans fifty-nine years and you are guaranteed many smiles and outright laughs along the way."
