How does 10 hours of work turn into 3000? Restore a rare Ruxton to concours condition

You never know until you try. My good friend Scott R Bosés gave me a call one day in 2012. He told me that Ruxton, produced in the early 1930s by the New Era Motors in New York, was the featured marque for the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours. Only 19 are known to exist, and Scott found a ’32 in Flint, Michigan, that wasn't running. He asked that I get it going for him so he could be put it on a transport and ship it to a restoration shop in California.
