A 1913 Buick touring car was recently “rediscovered” at Claude Hugley’s service station at 3420 Everett Ave. Art Sandvig, 2405 Baker Ave., a former owner of the building, took the car in payment for a $30 gas bill in 1937. Only the top of the old Buick was showing when Sanvig started moving materials in the shop. He now had the car in storage at his home.
