Spotted in Cloverdale
Two totally different pieces of Cloverdale history came face-to-face this week.
Harry Kleiser, great-grandson of Cloverdale’s founder James A. Kleiser, brought his grandfather’s 1931 Ford Model A Roadster by Riverside Cemetery the other day.
Kleiser originally acquired the car in 1965 and it sat in the garage at the old Kleiser house in Cloverdale for many years. After relocating back to Santa Rosa from his home in Washington earlier this year, he had it completely restored from the ground up.
When it was time to put a few miles on the new engine, he decided to take it for a little drive to – where else? – Cloverdale.
