The can I have, most likely belonged to a rich dude named Cliff Durant
. Aviator, various connections to Chevy, drove in six Indy 500's, owned an airport, a racetrack in Beverly Hills, married to hottie singers, that kind of playboy type rich dude.
Though, like I said, it isn't in any collectors condition, it's still a neat thing in my collection. It's been half buried and outside for the last 80 years or so. It's only about 2/3rds of the can, heavily rusted, and only slightly readable......but it's mine.
I'm just trying to put it there at the right time. Durant owned the property from 1921, through his death in 1937, till it's sale in 1947. I found the can in a foundation nook of what used to be the hangar at his private airstrip.
