The former OYSTER BAY has found a new home in Norvell Township, Michigan, where it adjoins a private residence. One can only speculate exactly how the current owner is "re-purposing" this car. Once can be more certain that the cost of moving the car from New York to Michigan by rail, and then moving it over the road to its current location, was a substantial expense.
