Ten year old Marty Gibson hatches a plan he hopes will one day get him a 1936 Ford Roadster like the one his uncle once owned. Years later, he combs Pennsylvania and sixteen surrounding states for the rare old car before moving his search west. In 1961, the rookie state trooper hits the Roadster jackpot in greater Los Angeles. Although his find is completely disassembled, he's thrilled by the condition of the dusty, low mileage car. During the near week long reassembly, he has the misfortune of encountering two malicious individuals who, because he inadvertently angers them, fixate on destroying his discovery. Another is hell bent on stealing it. He can't get the Roadster out of California fast enough. Towing his treasure across the Southwest on Route 66, the siege not only continues, but intensifies. Four criminals, who believe Marty is in possession of their property, join in the chase. Finding temporary refuge at a ranch in New Mexico, he calls the U.S. Secret Service for help with a problem they share. But even in their presence he continues to suffer grievous reversals right up to the happy ending. TOM GLOSSER was born in Wilkes-Barre and is a life-long resident of Pennsylvania. He served four years in the U.S. Air Force, performing administrative duties in Texas, California and Spain. Majoring in accounting at Wilkes University with a BS degree in Commerce and Finance, he was, until retirement, an accountant with a major DOW-30 company. As a long time old car enthusiast, he restores his own old cars as a hobby.
