There is(last I knew) a '59 Ghia Imperial Limousine somewhere on the north side of Detroit. In late 1985 or early 1986, there was a large collection of cars that was auctioned off in the Saginaw/Bay City area. I previewed the auction, but I wasn't there(as I recall) for the auction itself. The Ghia was absolutely gorgeous and the story was that it was originally the Michigan Governor's car! It really needed nothing. This was my first year at Northwood University in Midland and I was in no position to buy anything! I somehow discovered who had purchased the car(I believe through the auctioneers) and I connected with the new owners. Within that year following the auction, I made arrangements to stop by to see the folks who had purchased it. These new owners lived in a "very needy" large Victorian home and I remember there being an old barn out back. The yard was FULL of old Triumps, MGs, and other European sports cars. There sat the Ghia along side of the driveway..... probably where it was unloaded by whoever transported it home. I remember, at that time, thinking.... 'this is not good"!Oh my. I wouldn’t have cared how rough it was I would’ve outbid him
