In 1981 Meyer bought the chocolate-brown 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300Sc in the foreground from Clark Gable’s widow. Said to be the actor’s favorite car, it still has Gable’s St. Christopher medal, engraved with CG, on the dashboard. In the background is a 1929 Duesenberg Murphy convertible coupe made for Col. Robert McCormick of the Chicago Tribune. (Eric Staudenmaier / For The Times)
