I live in San Francisco and help run a company called Union Metrics.

“The Phantom Corsair is a  six-passenger coupé prototype automobile built in 1938. Designer Rust Heinz planned to put the car into limited production. However, Heinz’s death in a car accident in July 1939 ended those plans, leaving the prototype Corsair as the only one ever built.”
