James Melton pulled one of the Renaults out of Ridgefield, Ct. in 1943, I’ve always wondered what family had it at the time. I found two photos of the car in town in the 1920’s. Bob

I still want to know (or remember) how Ridgefield got into this act.  Also - “young French women” at Morris Park?  Further, Brighton Beach is some 12 miles SW of Morris Park.  Huh?  Sam, III
