It was during a coffee break when Keith Cornell suddenly remembered the ’32 Ford pedal car his father had brought home some 50 years ago. It didn't take long before his older brother Duane “built” a hot rod out of it. So upset was his father over Duane's handiwork, he took it away and stuck it in the attic over the shop. Keith wondered if it was still up there after all these years. Sure enough, there she was, covered in dust and cob webs and tucked away in the back corner. They just blew it off and sent it to the Petersen as it was found. “Hope it don't embarrass all them shiny ones.”
