Default DEUCE HEAVEN: The Secrest Collection ... PICS from 1976

Hey FORDBARNers ...

Does anyone know whatever became of William "Seek" Secrest's awe inspiring collection of 1932 Fords?

I've heard rumors that Don Thelen (Buffalo Motor Cars) purchased the entire collection from the Secrest family ... but I've also heard that the collection was broken up after Mr. Secrest's death (i.e., the cars were sold piecemeal) ... anyone know the true story?

Here's some pics taken at Seek's "Barn" in August of 1976:

Don't know what happened to the collection but I sure enjoyed laying an eyeball on it! Thank you, Dennis/Arkansas
